Vice Presidential Debate 10/2/2008
 
Here it is, the second in the series of debate (feedback threads). It's Sarah Palin(R, Alaska) vs. Joe Biden (D, Delaware). Personally I expect a circus, but let's see what happens =)

Washington University in St. Louis. I'm watching on CNN.com-Live. Enjoy, folks!

I didn't know they decide the first speaker by coin toss. Feels like a football game.

Annnnd here Joe Biden. God, he's wordier than I am. I doubt he can say everything he wants in the two minutes allotted. I can't quite place Palin's accent. It's like... I dunno. Wisconsin or Montana or something.

me too, i have a feeling palin will get:owned: but we will have to wait and see

FF Drifter 10-02-08 10:22 PM

She's doing okay so far. Biden is not pulling any punches though: "the ultimate bridge to nowhere!" (on McCain's health plan). I like how both Biden and Palin talk more directly to the American people than Obama/McCain did.

ACK N UP 10-02-08 10:25 PM

Yeah she is doing ok. Its still early though. Its like a football game, it doesn't get good til the end.

If you are watching online (CNN.com), watch the Live Feedback version of the debate. There are pretty charts all over the screen that constantly meters the audience. You can watch the reaction of male vs. female, "rich" vs. "poor," and Democrat/Republican/Independent.

I'm having a really tough time figuring out Palin's answers. She is not answering the questions at all and keeps coming back to a list of (admittedly strong) talking points. The candidates were just asked about weaknesses and she started talking about being a mom and a business executive.

Man.. I feel like Biden prepped for a knife fight and Palin prepped for a high school debate club...

Apparently the Dems have their own pitbull who doesn't wear lipstick..I have a feeling were it not for Bidens extensive collection of on camera gaffes it would be a Biden/Obama ticket.

Palin has an amazing talent to talk for two minutes without offering a single bit of substance. Im very impressed with Biden.

I still want to sit her down and explain to her that a group of mavericks is a paradox. Then punish her being naughty..:hitit:

ROFL @ Palins freudean slip. John McCain is the man we need to LEAVE!, erm lead.

DandDEE 10-02-08 11:48 PM

i like how the media now is saying she did a good job when it was apparent that she was gettin beat up and was all confused and what not... i think this debate was hilarious on the real

It is very obvious that Biden is exceptionally more knowledge than Palin. Honestly, he appears to more well-suited for the Presidential job than OBAMA or McCain. Biden is more like Vodka and Palin is more like a strawberry flavored wine cooler. Biden is direct and to the point (vodka) and Palin is too watered down and too light. Although, Palin was able to heighten her reputation a bit.

Wait Wait.. Are you saying Youd rather put Biden in your mouth?!:giggle:

This was the first brilliant play I've seen by Democrats in a long time. Rather than focus any attention on Palin, Biden went straight for McCains throat. He ripped it out IMO. Palin comes out looking OK, but McCains ticket is screwed.

I felt the same way. She never seemed answer what was posed to her. Biden was more polished, addressed the questions asked and had great rebuttals.

btw a CNN commentator made a great point after the debate was over. She said she was picturing Palin in a room with the generals after a 9/11 like situation and did not see her being able to make a decision or handle a situation of that magnitude. Whereas She felt( and I agree) that Biden would be more than equipped handle a situation like that.
