Joe Biden: Athens, Ohio. God love him, he doesn’t get it….He’s not a maverick, he’s a sidekick.
Senator Joe Biden and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin participated in the only vice presidential debate. Gwen Iffil moderated, and questions focused on a wide range of topics that included foreign and domestic policy issues.
The debate was presented in a full-screen format provided by the network pool showing candidates as they spoke with few shots as they reacted to their opponents’ remarks. Questions posed by the moderator were also summarized in the lower third of the screen.
The C-SPAN player is pretty cool, you can jump around the timeline quickly, though it only embeds with that tiny screen.
Fear not, this clip contains only 5% Palin. I couldn’t bear to listen or look at the VP debate tonight. But thankfully other folks did and are gathering choice clips for your YouTube pleasure.
