VP Debate Recap
Last night was the first and only Vice-Presidential debate between Senator Joe Biden and Governor Sarah Palin. Though both are gaffe-prone, they came out without any major mistakes, but also with no real shining moment for either. Many who watched the debate felt that each candidate played their roles well in solidifying their Party bases, and that there was no real conflict between the two of them. Palin tended to stick to talking points and played up her “down-home” persona to play to Middle American voters. Biden seemed to concentrate more on facts and demonstrating his blue-collar routes. Many media organizations are saying today that the debates are a draw with no clear winner, and the attention is now turns back to John McCain and Barack Obama, who will be having their second debate next Tuesday at 9 PM.
