Palin-Biden debate

Based on her performance with Couric, people were expecting her to just implode - that wasn't a realistic expectation. I think her handlers made her memorize 10-12 mini-speeches, and when a question even remotely touched the proper subject, she pulled out one of the speeches. She basically ignored the questions. The best example was when she pulled out her education mini-speech, when nobody was talking or asking about education at the time.

Biden won the debate, and she exceeded expectations simply by not falling down. CNN had those stupid focus group dials, and it was interesting that every time she spoke, the men in the group reacted positively, while the women reacted positively to Biden. People may like her, but I'm not sure her gosh-golly-gee act will actually turn into votes.
