If McCain wins in November will this "type of forum" follow here into office? Hope so.
I was referring to the way they have structured the debate which is different form how they are normally done. Not sure what you question is.

She's not capable of doing that, because that would require that she have knowledge.

Any candidate for the Vice Presidency who cannot come up with even ONE Supreme Court case is shamefully unelectable.

Well, the pitbull is in with McCain's advisors for obedience training. Appears they weren't happy with her progress.

As the saying goes, can't teach an old dog foreign policy or economic policy.

I suspect she'll lose, hands-down.
All I can say is, what I and most Americans' have seen from her (which is sheltered alot) she has not shown much experience or fact finding answers. Possibly beating around a bush, not G bush.....Good luck...don't see much change on Thursday...

You say that like it's a bad thing. After the past 8 years, a liberal, Constitution-respecting administration is exactly what I want!!

I think scarlet was referring to the rules of the debate? VP debate rules set: Shorter answers for Palin, lecterns for Biden

With a Biden win Thursday night your life will be how much better on Friday?

With a Palin win Thursday night your life will be how much better on Friday?

If the candidates don't show up your life will be how much better on Friday?

So even the RepubliKlans on here admit that their ONLY chance of getting a leg up is if the Dems perform nowhere near as well as they have so far, due to a "false sense of security"?

What happened to all that confidence in your surprise VP, guys? Now you're just sitting there praying that we screw up so that you have any kind of a chance?

That's a little sad.

Bring on the debates.

Regardless of how she does at the debate, I think her image has suffered to much damage at this point for it to make much of a difference outside the base of the party.

The debate will be structured differently than normal, at the request of "the base of her party". You said this will enhance her chances of doing well, "I think she will do ok". "She gets into trouble, when she is asked to expound or go into more detail about a subject". You mean like giving a meaningful answer to something like "what paper do you read"?

So what was it you did not understand about my post?
