If you missed tonight’s Vice Presidential debate between Governor Sarah Palin and Senator Joe Biden and you can’t wait for C-SPAN to re-run the event, you can read about it, get the transcript, and watch the entire video right here at Right Pundits!
This Vice Presidential debate has been one of the most anticipated debates in a very long time. All eyes were on Governor Sarah Palin. Could she hold her own with Senator Joe Biden — known to be a bare-knuckle debater? Would Biden be able to tame his tongue – known by many to be a ‘gaffemaster?’ Would Palin be knowledgeable ‘enough?’
As we noted earlier, this may be the first time in history that the VP debate gets higher television ratings that the presidential debate. The candidates covered issues from the economy to Iraq, while frequently landing blows to their opponents’ top of the ticket.
There were no major gaffes. No gotcha questions from Gwen. Biden defended Obama without doing harm to the ticket. But he seemed boring to me and very predictable. Palin on the other hand, was fresh, warm and down-to-earth, while speaking with a seemingly newfound confidence following some slips in recent network interviews. She was definately the ‘real deal’ compared to a tired, lifelong Washington insider like Joe Biden.
I think Michelle Malkin said it best tonite….”Sarah made history. Biden is history.”
Sadly, this was the only scheduled Vice Presidential debate. There are 2 more scheduled Presidential Debates to be held at Belmont University in Nashville on October 7th and at Hofstra University in Hempsted, N.Y., on October 15th.
