Tonight's debate has raised a lot of interest, certainly the most for a VP debate I can ever remember. So here's a few predictions I don't think are at all that daring:
- Sarah Palin will say a few things that are cogent, coherent and decently argued.
- Joe Biden will say something trivial that can (but shouldn't) be interpreted as a rude, boorish statement of some sort.
- The press will immediately pounce, and the story will become that Palin outstripped expectations, and/or that "Biden had a Biden moment" and this will dominate the "news" for the next few days.
Somewhere along the way, it might be good to see how they fall on the issues, but I'm not crazy.
