    .

    Sure as hell can't. I have no doubt he'll be more aggressive than the first debate, but he'll be running the risk of overdoing it. It doesn't seem to be in his nature to be aggressive, and that increases the possibility that he'll misfire.

    Especially after Biden's "performance", I'm sure Obama and his strategists are paying as much attention to his demeanor as his content.

    If Obama performs as badly as the last time I think it will be difficult for him to recover from that, but I don't think that is going to happen this time. His campaign will definitely make sure he is better prepared and ready to fire off all the DNC talking points (Bain Capital, 47%, etc.)

    The empty chair will be there, it will just be louder, more arrogant and just as ignorant. One of the few things Maobama has going for him now is likability, if he gets stupid, that can go away and you can que the fat lady. Personally I don't think he can think on his feet well enough to pull off that balancing act, he'll make an ass of himself, kind of like slow Joe did.

    No idea, but my cousin in New Jersey told me the other day that she has been undecided in this election. She hasn't voted for a Republican president since Reagan and she did vote for Obama in 2008, but after his and Biden's debate performances she is now leaning towards Romney.

    While technically true i believe the outcome will be set in stone after the debates unless some surprise or wag the dog event occurs.
