If she's touching the middle class then she's behind the wrong candidate. Biden was better prepared, answered the questions that were asked and with more concise and coherent answers. Palen spent too much time with cliche phrases and making silly irrelevant examples of soccer games and her personal friends. It's kinda sad people actually think she did well.

I thought Palin was great nothing at all like I had expected .

I wouldn't say she won as no one won but she held her own and it was draw but she was impressive.

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.

Clear indication that you didnt watch the debate. Biden mentioned the middle class TONS of times.

She did very well! She was direct - she was "herself".

Good Goin' Governor!

There are a lot of scientists and others who don't believe that global warming is man made, like Biden said. If he would have said otherwise, I would have given him credit. But in my view he stuck his foot in his mouth again. He also did the same is the "same-sex" marriage thing.

As for him being a good debater, that's true. He is a lawyer, and knows very well how to debate.

I thought they both actually debated in a respectful way. She wasn't totally kooky, but she does have a manner that puts me way off. Biden was friendly, smart and touching. They both did well.

Actually Palin was outclassed tonight. They both spoke very well, but Palin's responses were irrelevant and un-informing.

Apparently all it takes is a pleasing smile and a few winks to snowball some people.
