Debate poll says Biden won, Palin beat expectations - CNN.com
Sounds reasonable to me.
Sounds reasonable cause it's accurate.
my favorite Biden response was about how no one could say that he didn't know what it was like to be a single parent.
of course, no one had said that or anything remotely like it, but he had to work it into the debate somehow.
Does it strike anyone else as odd that our expectations for the person who could be president one day need to be considered at all?
A vote for McCain/Palin is a vote to continue the same economic policies that are destroying the middle class in America.

I think the lead in was that he didn't "get it"... you know, what it was like for real people.
And how many times did Palin use the word maverick? My favorite part was when he schmooshed her on that.
I know lots of people who were hoping that she would have to slink back to Alaska after the debate. Me, not being into schadenfreude, didn't wish that on her. But I think the bar was set so low for her that all she had to do was not have a moment they could take verbatim and use in an SNL skit to survive. The public's view of Biden is that he is very capable now.
So, what I figure is that it's now up to McCain to pull himself back up during the next two debates...
Bigger stories... that he gave up in Michegan and the bill that's going to go to the house today.
But at least sarah won't be the story for him anymore.
which reminds me. i have to incorporate my wooden arrow business this morning. in American Samoa. WTF is that about?
damned if I know...
But please tell me how mccain voted for the bill and then said that if he were president he'd have vetoed it, consequences be damned.
Another "debate" which put me to sleep.
Having not wasted my time I declare myself the official winner of the debates.
heh... you know, if you keep being this reaonable, I'm really going to have problems beating your butt.
