Biden did well tonight,

especially considering the circumstances.

But, I kinda wish he wouldn't grin so much when Trump lies or says something inane. I would prefer a scowl or look of disgust - I believe that would get the message across more effectively. IOWs, Trump isn't merely laughable, he is contemptible.

2. That's part of Joe's charm.


It's an expression of disbelief. He has done it in debates before, to good effect.

8. He reduced Paul Ryan to an inch high, just by chuckling at him.

Ryan was trying to hold up his end in the VP debate but Joe just chuckled at a few of his comments. Because they literally were laughable.

4. Hillary smiled a lot during her debates, too. But then women are vilified for being "angry."

And she still actually won. Joe Biden may have been trying to keep from laughing.

6. Biden did both.

He handled the "debate" extremely well given Trump's behavior.

7. Biden successfully walked a tightrope...

Trump was trying to goad Biden into losing his temper by flying in his face and coming on in his typical insulting playground bully mode. Biden had to respond strongly while maintaining control, and I believe he pulled it off and appeared far more presidential. Trump lowered the bar for conduct right at the onset, and the moderator failed to maintain control...

10. Relative to trump, he was great. A little flat, but in a horrible situation. But,

he still was clearly what we need now.

11. I wish Biden would gain a bit of weight

 

In watching the clips his face looks a bit gaunt. That can cause someone of that age to look older and less strong.

I thought he looked ideal weight during the convention speech
