Yes I was one of the apparent 69.9 million people who tuned in to watch. My girlfriend noted that it might have the same appeal as NASCAR does for some; to watch the crashes not the race. Ms Palin had expectactions so pathetically low that by managing to show up, breathe, and make it until the end, she would be declared the victor. Mr Biden had to not come across as condecending and knowledgeable and he'd win. So who won? I doubt that anyone's mind was made up because of it. Obama and McCain supporters could both claim victory. Joe came across as an experienced knowledgeable politician, Sarah came across as your everyday soccer mom. Who do you want as your national number 2?
