This should be really interesting. Both camps tried
to get Candy Crowley to keep her big fat trap shut
as the mod tonight, but she gave them the finger. Today
she said she will ask follow up questions when she
see's fit.

It will be interesting because she's totally in the bag
for Obama. She will mostly be going after Romney,
wait and see. I don't think she know's what she's up
against.

I don't know why she would go after Romney. He is going to answer the questions asked, isn't he?

She will interject if she thinks he didn't answer
the question they way she likes. The same
for Obama, but it will not be nearly as often.

I have seen the VP debate 3 times and the mod
was clearly after Ryan. She interrupted him
constantly. What did we expect, Obama was
a guest at her wedding for crying out loud.

But even the VP mod agrees Biden didn't win
the debate, he was too 'big'. Thats TV talk for
too expressive with his hands and face and
demeanor. It massively took away from his
credibility.

I would love if debates were radio only by law. There hasn't been one news show (fox, msnbc, cnn, etc) since the debates started that has talked about anything besides body language.

Why? They say 90% of our info comes to
us thru vision. If it was radio, nobody
could see that McCain never looked at
Obama once in the 3 debates they had
in 2008. Is that the message you want
delivered?

Even if 90% is true, it is the 90% of the communication I don't care about. I don't need to know how likable the president is. It's not a job requirement. I need to know their policies and how well thought out they are.

I think there are Big Bang Reruns at the same time. I'd rather focus on something actually important :P

It also might make the debates more civil because it has become the case that each base wants debates to be fights and whoever interrupts the other person more is more in command. All of Biden's smirks and interruptions were calculated decisions based off Romney's example.
