Eh, yeah, but at the same time I do like that it's being cleared up and discussed right away.

As for the whole Iran thing, I'm no fan of them getting nuclear weapons either and there's indeed some nutjobs in that part of the world, no question, but quite frankly, I'm more scared of people here in my own country some days than I am Iran right now.

So it seems like Biden is clearly winning so far but I'm a little nervous about his body language when Ryan is speaking.

Thoughts?

Biden's rough around the edges but it's working so far. I'd say they are at least even.

Seems like Biden is eating him alive.

But what do I know?

My thoughts too but I also didn't think that Romney clearly won last week either.

I think Ryan's going for a pleasant, easy-going look while he's listening, but it easily slips over into "smug" territory with that small little smile.

His strategy of doing that folksy laugh thing every time Ryan talks is hilarious. It's like he's saying to the viewer "Isn't that the most ridiculous thing you ever heard."

Agreed.

I must admit I did like Paul Ryan's little joke about not getting the words out the way you want all the time while looking pointedly at Biden. And Biden had a good comeback to that. I don't think that's a good excuse for the Romney quote they were discussing, but it was a good back and forth between them.

And speaking of Romney, how about that story about him visiting that family? That's kinda interesting.

FYI, Obama's chances on InTrade have gone up 3% since this debate started.
