Who won???Posted Thursday, October 2, 2008, at 10:27 PM
Okay, I can't wait until tomorrow! I have to ask it tonight, just minutes after the Vice-Presidential debate!
Who do you think won - and what are your reasons?
Which points did you think were the most important?
How many of you are going to listen to the pundits before you make up your mind?
Can you listen to the "experts" and still have your own opinion?
How much of the discussion was GLITZ and how much was SUBSTANCE?
Katie Couric of CBS took an unusual tact, I thought, when she asked Palin supporters (like Joseph Lieberman) what he thought Biden did well on. Then, she asked a Biden supporter the same question of Palin - What did she do well?
Are any of you objective enough to answer such questions?
Do you think the American people have pretty well made up their minds by now? Or could such a debate change some opinions?
I, for one, appreciated the civility of this debate. I agree that you don't have to be angry, rude and obnoxious to have a good exchange of ideas. In fact, I was amazed that I could actually LISTEN to the debate, given my dislike of controversy. I also dislike a one-sided debate - and this one certainly wasn't that.
Mull it over, and I'll see ya in the morning!!! Sweet dreams!!!
