    Who do you think will when the VP debate and will it change anything? I think it will probably be as wash and if the Dan Quayle, Loyd Bentsen debate could not change a election course I sure don't see this one doing it.

    The only possible large effect it could have is if biden goes completely crazy and looses it on national TV.

    Ryan could score a couple of points with fiscally conservative Independents if biden saws nothing intelligible as usual.

    Many, many millions of people will be seeing Ryan for the first time.

    He 'wins' be demonstrating his brilliance and his thoughtfulness - being Presidential - to these people who don't know him.

    Beating down the moderately retarded Biden just because it is easy may not be the right strategy.

    As with all debates this year, I will NOT be watching this debate.

    I don't need to see a well-spoken, intelligent, dynamic Vice Presidential candidate take advantage of Obama's retarded monkey "vice president".

    What Ryan will do to Biden should earn this debate an "R" rating for "intellectual violence". No children under the age of 18 should be allowed to watch tonight's debate without parental supervision.

    This will be a different format than the first debate, this one is a town hall type, I will be tougher to score points. That being said, if the questions are mostly on the economy or gov spending, no one knows the numbers better that Ryan. But I agree, it should be fun to watch.

    I dont want to see Biden destroyed personally. I just want his ideas beaten. And I figure he will say something entertainingly stupid.

    .

    I don't know who will "win", but my wild-ass guess is that Biden leaves Goofy Joe at home and comes out like a hungry attack dog. He's a smart guy, and I have no doubt a big part of his preparation is his handlers telling him to stay focused like a freakin' laser beam. What I wonder is (a) how effective that will be, and (b) if he can keep it up throughout the debate. I have little doubt his strategy will be to keep Ryan on his heels.

    Probably the expectations will be low for Biden and Ryan isn't a great debator and probably doesn't like being challenged.

    I expect that Biden will do what Obama SHOULD have done last week, call these guys on their policies.

    Romney can pull off the "Trust me, I'm really a moderate".

    Ryan. Not so much. He's part of the wing of the GOP that watches It's a Wonderful Life and cheers for Mr. Potter.
