I'm disgusted by the people trying to slam Biden because he happened to get a little choked up at the mention of his family (which of course is tied into the loss of his first wife and daughter...)
I thought it was a very real moment that happened to pop up and anybody who tries to criticize for that is really lacking class.

Strange as it may seem (or actually, not strange at all), some people on here last night did not know that story. At least I hope they didnt.

I will get into it more later but she did a fabulous job.

If you are all honest you will see that she can perform and did a fantastic job!

Way to go Sarah!

You won this debate.
Are you sure you had the volume on loud enough?

Well, I'm not a Republican, but anyone who believes that climate change is only man-made is not only radical but must suspend any understanding of science and the validity of scientific data. Of course, Biden said that FDR made an address on TV in 1929 as President, so nothing would surprise me.

The expectations for Sarah Palin were sooo low that just turning up gave her brownie points.The reason that the expectations were low was because SHE couldn't answer simple questions in a interview. To say that they were "gotcha" questions is a cop out. They were all relevant questions about policy, the judiciary etc. It would have been interesting to hear Sarah in the debate, answer the questions as asked. She didn't. She even used her primed response that she would not be forced to answer the questions the way that the adjudicator wanted. Sorry Sarah but that was the whole point of the debate..to answer the questions, not just give your rehearsed soundbites. She smiled through this like a girl on her first date praying she won't have to kiss the guy. Biden could not debate her properly because he was as confused as the rest of the nation by her unwillingness to actually stick to the questions. okie dokie!

I will go with Palin pulling it out slightly because she will be able to connect to the real middle class people while Biden has no clue to who the middle class really is.
Ummm...you called it BEFORE the Debate started.

Clairvoyant?

Wait don't answer, I don't want to use my opportunity yet.

.......~What is tomorrow's lottery up to? hmm....

Senator Biden answered questions, the Governor just wasn't worthy of being in the game. Senator McCain's judgment brought us this Circus, what a mess. Where the heck was the most qualified Republican? Eating popcorn, grimacing with the rest of us.

Exactly, anyone in the Senate at the time the war started would have voted for the war. We were all fed a line of bullshlt that there were weapons of mass destruction, blah blah blah. Irrelevant who voted for the war and who didn't. Even Obama.
