Vice Presidential Debate Tonight

Joe Biden and Sarah Palin go head-to-head tonight for their first and only time.

Vice presidential debates have been held reguarly since 1984, but have been largely unsuccessful and historically insignificant. However, with an imminent historic election due in a month, all eyes will be on a fiery Biden-Palin showdown.

Both second-in-command hopefuls will have a point to prove tonight. Govenor Palin has been waning in popularity since her speech at the Republican National Convention. And after a less than impressive interview with Katie Couric last week, now may be her last chance to deliver. This debate will be key for her to prove skeptics wrong on her relative inexperience.

Senator Biden also has cynics to silence. Biden has long held a reputation for being a lively and combative speaker. But often times, this has made him appear aggressive and at times patronizing. Many fear that if he adopts a harsh tone against Palin that many are used to, Biden may alienate a key constituent of women voters.

With election interest at an all-time high, and an unprecedented spotlight on the vice presidential nominees, this debate is expected to set a tone for what’s to come for both parties in their final month of preparation.

Starts at 9 p.m. Eastern Time, on most major networks (NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox, CNN, etc.)
i.e. No Office tonight.

[edit 3:06 pm] If you don’t have access to a TV, you can head over to the Usdan lobbyat 9 pm for a group viewing.

    Text should be not be justified for the editorials, opinion columns, or letters to the editor in a newspaper. Other than that, you justify in print.There is no text justification standard for blogs, as far as I know.

    I always justify my text in essays. I think it looks bad otherwise. But that’s just me. But yeah, justifying on the web is a big no-no.

    I like how in this post critics of Palin are referred to as “skeptics” while critics of Biden are called “cynics.” Don’t believe the MSM has a liberal bias?/sarcasm

    Nice summary. You forgot to mention, however, that Palin is an idiot and Biden a jack-ass. But that just makes your “set a tone for what’s to come for both parties” comment so wonderful. Let’s see what they have to say about this ridiculous bailout proposal.Good times.
