Join To The Point and special guests throughout the VP debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan. October 11, 2012 at 9pm Eastern Time.
Ryan's best moments are when he praises others, or comes kind. The line to Biden about understanding that things don't come out right. The nod to Biden's son Beau. The nod to the moderator's time covering war. Of course, you don't get to this point by the age of 42 without knowing how to sound good sucking up.
What's amazing to me is how these presidential debate used to be so carefully managed --- and that used to be a big criticism of them. But Biden has thrown out the rules and doesn't care. He just goes ahead and crosstalks. It'll be interesting to see if Obama or Romney does this to each other next week.
Thanks for your feedback! Team Branch
