Well I hope he can appear like he knew what he was talking about, he's only be in there 25+ years...
Length of time served doesn't matter. He knew his stance and spoke freely, without too many notes. He wasn't robotic. His answers seemed to be his own.
Both parties are well rehearsed... duh. Any canidate could spend all night getting into the complexity of getting down to the nitty gritty of different problems with solutions, she addressed the problems at hand in a simple straight forward manner.
Isn't that what matters? Appealing to the American society?
No she didn't. She even at one point said "I may not answer the questions the moderator or Joe have asked, I will speak to the American people" (or something like that.) That is a round about way of saying, "I don't know the answer, so I will try to be charismatic." Palin is not well rehearsed or qualified. She is trying to cover it up, with winks, batting her eyes, and cliche phrases. She succeeded slightly last night.
I believe politics today have a different face than before. The undecided voters don't just care about charisma anymore. That got them G W Bush and Bill Clinton. Face it decided voters rarely, if ever, cross over. Undecided voters want someone who has a plan for Americas future. Answers that can be played on YouTube, and sound bites on the tv and radio. Biden did a better job at that.
Palin needs more practice and knowledge to address the problems at hand in a simple straight forward manner. Both of which she can obtain, it is just a matter of how quickly.This post has been edited by throwingks: Oct 3 2008, 07:30 PM
