15. It was like DeVos doesn't know how to give short answers
Edited on Mon Oct-02-06 10:15 PM by islander
Seriously, Skubick gave him some easy questions (He practically begged Devos to call Granholm a liar!) and DeVos fumbled them all by refusing to just say "Yes" or "No". His debate coaches must have been tearing their hair out while watching that. He's the challenger, but he's the one who ended up sounding like a hack politician dodging a question.

I wouldn't quite call it a blowout (I think DeVos got in a couple of small jabs that could register with undecideds, like his accusation about the Japan trips), but Granholm definitely won this one.
