The Vice Presidential Debate

On Oct 2nd Palin will debate Joe Biden. This is something that I'm avidly waiting for, because we all pretty much know what the result will be: public humiliation of Palin at the hands of a guy who although a corporate centrist has years and years of experience in the U.S. Senate. Including on the Foreign Relations Committee.

The first Presidential Debate is next Friday at 9:00 Eastern time. I'm waiting for that, too, because after Obama pulling out of the challenge for eight debates that he had previously agreed to there haven't been very many opportunities to see them engage each other in a formal way. There was the Church Debate, but that's about it. It'll be interesting to see Obama actually going to bat for his positions on record. The acceptance speech introduced a good note of populism into the campaign. It remains to be seen if this will continue.
