I’m giving the Vice-Presidential debate to Joe Biden, 65 to 35 or 70 to 30 over Paul Ryan. A lot of fast scrapping, a lot of punches thrown, a few enjoyable interruptions. I understand that Biden laughing and guffawing when Ryan went into his b.s. is more attractive than snarling and double-taking, but I wanted less of it. Ryan did the usual sidesteppping on core beliefs (i.e., wanting to cut back on middle-class entitlements to reduce national debt) and performed like a steady hammer. Moderator Martha Raddatz was sharp, disciplined, focused and in control — much better than Jim Lehrer was last week.
