He obviously has the skills to do better (he is a Congressman and speaks publicly often) but this was his only chance and he blew it. His base will still vote for him but undecideds and independents won't be swayed by tonights performance.


I think he has the skills as he's extremely intelligent. Maybe the smartest of the 4 men running...but he's never been in a debate like this. Biden has run for President before, had the VP debates in the past and is more experienced in this area. This was Ryan's first major debate. I thought he came off well, alittle stiff and wonky but that's not worst thing.

Although talking about his retired monther living in Florida seemed like a direct pander to the State.

Biden sounded pretty good if you take away the fact he was pulling stuff out of thin air and lying the entire time.
