That was pretty lame.I gotta stop reading this thread. I can't keep up with the debate.
Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.

She looks very nervous. It's obvious. And yes this is just a VP debate but it also showcases McCain decision making capabilities.If she blows this it could well be game over.
Understood, but I was saying that it is acceptable for the VP's to talk about their resumes since, especially in Palin's case, they've been questioned regarding experience.

biden really owned her pretty hard for not being on topic. other than that, it's seemed pretty even.

do you have that backwards b/c Palin gives no facts whatsoever.
Are you kidding? Biden is just plain lying. The clips are on YouTube of the Dems blocking reform of Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac, while the Republicans tried to raise the alarm. Biden flagrantly lied about it.And Biden just keeps trying to redefine words to mean things they don't mean to defend indefensible policies.

Biden is more likeable, but on facts and content, Palin is cleaning up.
ironic, isnt it? If Joe can hold that balance, he kind of wins in a weird way. VP is more about likability than ideas (which is why I thought Palin would win this debate). I would call it a tie (maybe slight edge to Biden) so far. PotOdds, deregulation may be a good thing but that is hard to sell to the country right now.

Yeah, she made the Freddie Mac/Fannie Mae point, but needs to go back to it.

Biden is lying again about Obama calling out the sub-prime mortgage thingy. The Dems denied it until this week. This is well documented.

both are saying their candidate called the crisis a few years ago. She's made that claim as well.

Her babbling on climate change makes no sense. Stop talking.EDIT: Biden is making no sense either. It's probably just too complex of a topic to be covered in soundbites in two minutes.
