I've Been Thinking:

On Meet The Press on Sunday morning, Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Senator Joe Biden taunted Republican Vice Presidential candidate Governor Sarah Palin.

He said he wants to know her policies and perspectives.
He said he thinks she will be a formidable debater and looks forward to the vice presidential debate at Wash U in St. Louis on October 2nd.
Debates will not prove to be Biden strong points.

In a debate, brevity is crucial.
Having watched Biden for years and Palin for a little more than a week I will predict that Palin will stay on point and that Biden will ramble.

Biden is a very capable speaker but never when there is stop watch.
In the Senate he always runs over time and has to be asked to stop before reaching a conclusion. Joe Biden has charisma and experience and presence and a poor sense of time.

Palin says what she has to say and crinkles her nose when making an important point. Sarah Palin has natural charm and presence and is being coached in the basics of media presentation and performance.

The candidates have a month to hone their skills and improve their weak spots.
I, too, am looking forward to the October 2nd debate.
I will be looking at style, substance and structure in this debate.
