    Last night during the United States of America lone Vice President debate, it was a very live wire performance. It was simply the difference between a calm, measured, adult, Rep. Paul Ryan in his responses and a Vice President Joe Biden who was if not acting like a “clown”, he was sure acting like a “drama king.” Overall, it looked like VP Biden was simply was “cracking up” under the pressure to perform as Vice President. Looks like Rep. Paul Ryan was not only speaking to the GOP/Republican base, but to the rest of the country as a whole and...

    One of the casualties of Obama's debate last week is his likability rating. That was the only thing that was sustaining him. It definitely wasn't the state of the economy. When he started smirking and looking condescending when Romney was pummeling him with facts, some people not only continued to think of him as not exactly competent, they started for the first time thinking him as rude and a jerk. While Biden probably made Democrats feel better with his debate performance, I expect that his terrible rudeness confirmed the lack of likability of the Obama/Biden ticket in the minds of...

    Thursday’s Vice Presidential debate was a winner for the Republican ticket. Depending on your barometer, Governor Sarah Palin may or may not have hit a home run tonight – I say she smacked a two-run triple into the gap – but she unquestionably came up huge, foiling (and probably disappointing) her tongue-watering critics, standing her ground admirably, going toe-to-toe with the time-worn, grizzled sigh-master, Senator Joe Biden. It wasn’t a performance for the ages in the classic sense, but it was one of the most personable and likeable performances I have ever seen in a debate – and it will...

    She wouldn't bring any political base to the ticket, since she doesn't have one. She wouldn't bring any regional advantage, since McCain is almost certain to beat either Democrat in Rice's native state of Alabama, and almost certain to lose to either Democrat in Rice's adopted state of California. And while McCain has tied his candidacy to the Iraq occupation, he maintains some distance from the Bush administration by charging that until recently the war was woefully mismanaged. Rice, as national security adviser in Bush's first term, was one of the mismanagers. She would, however, provide three things that McCain...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) - Americans watching Vice President Dick Cheney (news - web sites) square off against Democratic Senator John Edwards (news - web sites) in an October debate will see two politicians with starkly different styles: the sober Washington insider versus the silver-tongued freshman senator. The lone nationally televised face off from Cleveland, Ohio, will pit an eloquent candidate with boyish good looks against an older, balding vice president with a sedate speaking style. But the debate will also highlight Edwards' brief governmental experience against a Republican with a resume long on national security issues who has been a key...
