    Many seemed to think that Palin would fall on her face, yet she held her ground steadily. Biden is a polished debater and was excellent in this format. The problem is that he really didn’t outshine Palin, which, IMO, constitutes a win for Palin. :thumbup

    Looks like factcheck.org employees will be paid overtime after last nights’ debate, though. #-o

    I find it interesting that at least so far, Palin has all the votes.

    Probably early, but it’s contrary to the news media.

    Oops, that just changed. One vote for Biden.

    For me based on substance- Biden had facts she had her back country folksy replies void of substance and Palin changed topics way too much avoiding the topic. Palin’s expectations were set very low to survive and she did better than expected but is that enough? Biden just avoided attacking her enough and that happens in most debates where there is a man verses woman, the man backs off. [-X This was talked about several days ago as a pitfall to this debate.

    Which facts were those. Where Biden claimed that Cheney should know that article I one deals with the Executive branch (when it actually deals with the legislative branch–you know, the one that BIDEN is in #-o ) , or that Obama never said he would sit down with no preconditions with the leaders of Iran, North Korea, etc, or when Biden stated he has always been a supporter of clean coal, etc…etc…etc…

    As with any politician or upper management there was no substance to the statements made by either candidate and I was expecting none. I just wish the American public could really grasp the duties, responsibilities and powers vested in the office of the President and Vice President of these United States. http://www.usconstitution.net/const.html#A2Sec1

    The President cannot raise or lower your taxes, nor can they protect your investments simply by waving a hand; campaign promises are as a kitchen match in a hurricane… The Executive branch is limited by law from actually doing most of the things they promise to make happen.

    I will vote for McCain and Palin not because of their rhetoric but rather because they have shown by their actions to adhere to many of the same standards I believe in..

    Good points Javi. I’m really interested in the potential Supreme Court appointees of each candidate. There is a possibility that the next president will appoint 2 new ones. That’s one of the many reasons I going with McCain/Palin.

    Javi, I agree, but on the other hand, I can’t communicate how disappointed I am that McCain supported a bailout bill that states as its purpose the idea that it…

    Provides authority to the Treasury Secretary to restore liquidity and stability to the U.S. financial system and to ensure the economic well-being of Americans.

    It is NOT the role of the government to ensure[/i:1o31tzad] the economic well-being of one single American. That is the responsibility of the individual and the family; no one else!

    Not only that, it simply can’t be ensured. Not even total socialism/communism has been able to accomplish that. 8-|

    Even the declaration framers understood that we were endowed by our creator with the right of the pursuit[/i:1o31tzad] of happiness; not the guarantee of the same.

    I think McCain did it as a strategic move. Because lets face it, Republicans
    are not all that popular. But with that move, I think McCain can do more
    than Obama can. He can change the system. [=}=]

    BTW, Biden is a very polished guy, smart too. I believe Palin held her
    ground, but at the same time, she did dodge quite a few questions, which
    so many politicians do.. [=}=]

    That is really the point that swings me to the McCain side.

    If you look at what the candidates say as anything more than empty promises you’re sure to be dissapointed.

    And it’s not so surprising that people will feel the person they are going to vote for “won” the debate. ;)
