Did I like the VP debate? You betcha! Darn right I did!

Score:
Biden - 1
Palin - 1
People who don't really care: 4.1 Billion (The population of the world)

Boy, debates are boring, especially when no one falls on their face. Between Palin's cutesy memorized phrases, and Biden biting his lower lip off to keep from being condescending, even when she kept getting the names of generals wrong, it was almost more than I could bare. I, of course, liked Biden better. Let's face it, if needs be, he'd make a better president.

If the Republican's win this election, I can only imagine the cabinet meetings and the visits with heads of state. I'm sure Governor Palin is a nice person, just like President Bush; I'm sure he's a nice guy too. But just because they're nice and fun to talk to on a personal level, doesn't mean I want them in the White House, representing my country. I don't want someone to tell me they're just like me, that they know what problems I face even when they pull down more than a million a year. In McCain's case, it's multi millions a year.

I don't want some ordinary man or woman just like me, or at least pretending to be, as the greatest elected officials in the land. I want someone extraordinary.

I agree with you. I don't want someone who almost flunked out of high school and his military acadamy (and is proud of it)to run our country. I want someone who is smarter than that. Someone who if he doesn't know the answer to something is smart enough to figure it out. It also bugged me how Palin kept comparing herself to the average joe. You aren't average lady, you're a governor of a state and make way more money then most of us.

The commentators said this debate was so uneventful, it would probably be forgotten in a week. I would say that's mostly true; only catchy phrases remain, nothing of substance. I barely remember what was talked about. What does that say about me? What does that say about us a nation?
