What Are You Looking for in the Vice Presidential Debate?

Vice Presidential debates historically are not believed to make much of a difference. Do you expect this year to be any different?

As the hype over the first presidential debate continues, attention turns to the vice presidential debate coming up on Thursday in Danville, Ky. Again the expectations game begins with Republicans cautioning people not to expect too much after Gov. Mitt Romney’s stellar performance last week.

A story in The Huffington Post looks at the match up between the two candidates, Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan, and gives an opinion on what people might expect. The Huffington Post is categorizing Biden’s position as one that is “playing defense” following President Barack Obama’s “passive” performance last week. Many other media sites are weighing in, as was the case with the first presidential debate, but "caution" appears to be the name of the game. Although Ryan is hailed as being "smart," and Binden has earned a reputation for himself as being "the gaffe-master," people are being reminded of Biden's vast experience and ability to connect with regular folks.

What do you expect to see from the vice presidential candidates during the debate and how important do you think it even is to the overall presidential race?

Sharon and William, it's news today. the administration is being called out big time. While playing in hollywood, our people died in benghazi. I can find scripture for that too. In fact, he knew they needed help and did nothing.

Actually, they didn't ask- they begged. And his own words when we had a week of people from other countries here to discuss matters pertaining to foreign affairs, he said he was "busy" (translate: I'm going on tv to tell people about how I'm "eye-candy").

How is it the government's responsibility to help those in need? It should be the choice of the individual to help those in need. If you take the decision(free will) away from the individual, then how is that individual supposed to become a better person and to grow spiritually? The more the government takes away from people, the less people will choose to give and the less that will be received due to the inefficiencies of government. It is amazing how many people on this board claim to have faith in God, but all they really seem to put their faith in is Government which continue to try and remove God from the U.S. I put my faith in God and pray that he will guide everyone(rich, poor, powerful, weak, healthy, sick, etc...) to follow in his path..
