Vice Presidential Debates

Many people thought that the vice-presidential debates would be a train wreck for Sarah Palin and it wasn’t. She was coherent and dutifully stuck to her talking points — even when they didn’t answer the question. It’s a common tactic used by many public figures, some do it more effortlessly than others and she was a bit akward with it, but no big deal.

I was disappointed with both candidates because they seemed to be cheerleaders for their running mates’ (especially in the beginning) and I wanted to hear what each vice-presidential candidate’s position was on the issues. Biden was quite fluid and at-ease answering questions. Palin was was a little too “folksy”, giving a shout out to third-graders.

This was the only vice-presidential debate, and the next presidential debates are Tuesday, October 7, 2008.
