    Should be a neither option. I think it was a draw.

    It was close. I think it is debatable either way, so I can't call a winner.

    but meh, I liked Paul Ryan's performance better... Biden looked like he was trying to audition for a high school play.

    I think it was even in terms of points, Ryan looked more professional. I think what helped Biden the most was after the napalming Obama took Biden didn't get destroyed. Ryan's biggest failings was not really hammering Biden's really dumb comments such as the most serious sanctions and the Libyan knowledge thing

    Re: Who won the VP Debate?

    Vice Presidential debates can be a deal breaker for a rising star in either party in terms of their own career. That did not happen tonight.

    Biden won this one clearly on facts, leadership and confidence.

    Neither screwed up enough to cause the loss of their running mate imo and that is what they want to avoid. VP debates do not win elections yet they can harm the VP's career within their own party.

    I loved it when Biden called out Ryan on the "death panel" Sarah Palinesque weak attempt to deflect the medicare discussion. Obama should have smacked Romney down on that bit of lying BS and other deceptions. Romney tried the same tactic and that is a complete distortion of reality.

    Biden was not only calm and stayed on facts ... he was badass!

    I won't say Ryan won, but I was more impressed with Ryan's performance, minus moments in the foreign affairs discussions. Both candidates came out ahead.

    Re: Who won the VP Debate?

    Biden clearly won. Not because he was on the attack, but because he answered the questions he was asked. Ryan seemed to keep taking a side step and saying what Obama hasn't done instead of saying what Romney would do. It was so bad that the moderator has to ask him to answer a question. Even then, Ryan still side stepped. They are going to re-air the debate in a few minutes on C-SPAN. Re-watch and take notes.
    Scientific fact: If you took all of the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.

    This poll is flawed. There is no choice for draw.
