  - Yeah that's pretty much what they are going to do  nomad1776   Oct-01-08 10:47 AM   #2 
  - Yep, that's pretty much it.  1corona4u   Oct-01-08 10:49 AM   #6 
  - Yeppers--that's exactly what will happen. I watched David Gregory's  wienerdoggie   Oct-01-08 10:50 AM   #10 
  - And don't forget, that little wrinkling of her nose she does.  murbley40   Oct-01-08 02:01 PM   #79 
  - Two points:  MercutioATC   Oct-01-08 10:52 AM   #13 
  - I hope he rebuts any mistake she makes with one sentence then moves on.  bob_weaver   Oct-01-08 10:55 AM   #19 
  - 3) She will make AT LEAST 1 huge disastrous gaffe or non answer....  No DUplicitous DUpe   Oct-01-08 10:59 AM   #23 
  - Not sure, McLiar made a HUGE gaffe claiming Pakistan was a failed state  nomad1776   Oct-01-08 11:02 AM   #24 
     - That wasn't not a true gaffe, it was a bizarre stretching of the term "failed state"  Marsala   Oct-01-08 11:43 AM   #44 
  - I agree that the media is pissed off that Palin has been sequestered from them  CrispyQGirl   Oct-01-08 11:02 AM   #25 
  - The media is still pissed, but they still work for Republican bosses  nomad1776   Oct-01-08 11:06 AM   #29 
  - I think he can address her directly in one, and only one context  Vash the Stampede   Oct-01-08 12:44 PM   #62 
  - I am inclined to agree on this, esp in light of the Couric interviews.  yellowdogintexas   Oct-01-08 02:05 PM   #80 
  - And Biden will be caustioned away from using his sharp wit; which is unfortunate as hell.  blondeatlast   Oct-01-08 10:52 AM   #14 
  - I hope he does, but keeps it very brief, and non-personal  bob_weaver   Oct-01-08 10:57 AM   #21 
     - The problem is that truth is not part of these debates  nomad1776   Oct-01-08 10:59 AM   #22

  - That could happen, still it won't stop the media from singing Sarah's praises  nomad1776   Oct-01-08 12:23 PM   #56 
     - Even that asshat Joe Scarborough couldn't defend her today  VolcanoJen   Oct-01-08 12:30 PM   #57 
     - Expect to hear "she held her own against a seasoned Senator"  DesertedRose   Oct-01-08 12:34 PM   #58 
     - Yeah that's going to be it  nomad1776   Oct-01-08 12:45 PM   #63 
     - The MSM tried that shit after the first Obama/Mac debate and it didn't work.  msallied   Oct-01-08 12:47 PM   #64 
  - Exactly right. I'm nervous and scared about this. I hope Biden has some zingers at hand, too.  weezie1317   Oct-01-08 12:15 PM   #53 
  - if Biden is breathing, he has zingers (watch for blood trickling as he bites his tongue)  yellowdogintexas   Oct-01-08 02:10 PM   #81 
     - Thanks for the re-assurance!  weezie1317   Oct-01-08 02:34 PM   #82 
  - I was just saying the very same thing a few hours ago.  dicksteele   Oct-01-08 02:38 PM   #83 
  - Even if Palin performs as you've said, it won't make a difference.  sparosnare   Oct-01-08 10:48 AM   #3 
  - That's true, but my point is that the actual debate will be meaningless  nomad1776   Oct-01-08 10:50 AM   #8 
     - I agree the actual debate will be meaningless; not a debate at all.  sparosnare   Oct-01-08 11:14 AM   #37 
  - Possibly.  iceman66   Oct-01-08 10:48 AM   #4

        - well, i was trying to mix it up a little, but you are correct.  jakem   Oct-01-08 11:03 AM   #26 
  - I'm bracing myself for a hell of an entertaining evening.  A-Schwarzenegger   Oct-01-08 10:49 AM   #7

  - She will attack. It's me my observation that people attacking  nomad1776   Oct-01-08 11:09 AM   #34 
     - If that were true, McCain wouldn't be behind by 7-10 points.  TexasObserver   Oct-01-08 11:23 AM   #42
