Joe Biden and Sarah Palin are scheduled to slug it out in the only VP debate this Thursday. Before the debate, the media asked Biden how he is going to treat the Republican running mate of McCain and he responded saying – I’ll treat the Alaska Governor â€œwith respect.â€
However one young voter mocked McCain surrogates for crying sexism when Sarah Palin is attacked and asked wanted to know how Biden plans to confront her. To this the senator from Delaware replied â€œshe is the governor of a state. She warrants respect. The only thing that I have to find out and you all have to find out is what are her views.â€Â Very good answer, in my view.
After the first presidential debate between McCain and Obama, this second debate between the veeps is further going to ricochet the growing interest among people across both sides of the divide whether Sarah Palin is capable enough to handle the job. After all she is only a heart beat away from being assigned the most important job in the United States Of America.
When is the Vice Presidential debate
For the record, the schedule of the vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin is as followed: Sen. Joe Biden from Delaware and Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, the vice presidential nominees of the Democratic and Republican parties, respectively, will debate each other at 8 p.m. (CDT) Oct. 2 in the Washington University in St. Louis Athletic Complex, according to the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD).
I will be posting the clips of the debate here and also if I can come across the webcast of the debate live. Also, I plan to cover the debate through live blogging and see what are the initial thoughts and impressions of the debate as it progresses.
What do you think of the debate?
I think Sarah Palin was quite comfortable and as the debate went on she warmed up. Joe Biden showed his years of experience as he had more meatier fact on the issues to talk about. Scroll down and see what other viewers are saying below!
