She exceeded my expectations for the first few minutes of the debate, but it went downhill rapidly after that.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry watching this.

I think he was quite genuine when that happened

I was worried that people would feel sorry for her. I don't think that's going to happen.

Yeah, that didn't seem rehearsed or anything. But he is a politician, I am still a little bit skeptical. But yeah, it looked spontaneous from here. (To Kellyahern's comment...)

This final answer is not scoring her any points. Biden clearly named an issue where he changed positions after gaining more knowledge. She simply blamed other people for things she couldn't get done. That's the mark of a complete lack of leadership.

Do you people know his bio? Christ.

I'm quite sure it was sincere.

(this is regard to Biden tearing up btw)

My father despises Biden and thinks Palin's an idiot, so this was torturous for him to watch.

Has your dad decided who he's voting for?

He was talking about his children's death. I'm pretty damn sure it was real!!!

I do not for one instance doubt that he was sincerely choking up.

To be honest, I wasn't happy when Obama picked Biden as his running mate. But I think he did very well tonight.
