Well this is because in America being intelligent and curious about the world is somehow a negative characteristic to have when running for office.

Watch her after Biden teared up about his wife and kids. She grins and goes into her talking point. Totally tone deaf.
I can't wait to see the visual of this debate. I could only hear it on the computer. Visuals are important i.e. Kennedy vs Nixon

That's because being curious about the world is "elitist."

I wish there was more actual talking to each other, just like in last week's debate. It's too much talking to the camera/America instead of a conversation/debate with the other candidate.

Prediction:

McCain gets a bump of 2-3 points after this debate, but it's only temporary & goes back down once the issues take precedence again. Down even more if she does a major media interview that sucks.

Here's the thing: Of McCain-Palin, the only one who can claim any victory in this debate is Palin herself. She didn't bumble around like a buffoon--good for her. But she didn't really make a strong case for John McCain. What she did was recite the standard McCain Campaign talking points. Biden strove to point out McCain's flaws--over and over again--and argued that Obama-Biden is the solution. Palin simply argued over and over again that she and McCain are mavericks, but didn't state anything at almost any time to actually back that up.

I agree. Why is there the difference in format?

Funny----Paul Begala on CNN just said the same thing: that Palin may have benefited, but that she didn't actually make a strong case for McCain.

Biden's best moment IMO - dispelling the perception that McCain is a maverick.

Agreed.

There's the VP Debate soundbite.

The McCain camp insisted on this set up. In exchange for agreeing that there will be no sparring between the VP candidates, McCain basically agreed to a free for all in the presidential debates.

From a huge Obama supporter in New York City...and I quote...

" No major meltdowns for her - that's a disappointment for our side"

"Very spirited"

"I was hoping this would sink their ticket - the debate won't do that - McCain will have to do that himself."
