VP Debate

I saw the debate. Regular readers here know I am a big partisan Palin supporter.

Biden won.

Not by a lot. But I feel he did slightly better. I was also relieved with Gwen Iffil. I had my concerns but I think she was, on the whole, balanced.

Gov. Palin did very well. I thought she spent too much time on "energy" and that made her look like a one trick pony.

The pundits say there were no gaffs, but I would SWEAR I heard her call Joe "Obiden" at one point. Not a biggie, anyway.

As far as this debate changing anyone's mind, I'd say no. Nothing compelling. I have to agree with the talking heads on Fox that this debate was more about putting Palin to the test rather than accomplishing anything of substance. She passed with flying colors. She did not embarrass McCain and she debated sufficiently well. I don't know how much that will help his numbers. She surely didn't hurt him tonight.

I had pretty much the same assessment.

I told Ari last night that I felt there were several points (especially in the beginning) where she did not actually answer the questions. It was frustrating in the extreme. She picked up some by the end.

Actually I did not know you were a big partisan Palin supporter.

I want her to answer questions. She didn't. It bothers me. McCain was losing me before she came on the ticket (he changed his stances on too many things) but now. I think he totally did.

Oh well.
