Tonights debate is not going to be like it was last week. It wont be a win for our guy. The most we can hope for on this one is a tie.
Biden wants this one. He wants it bad. When his time is done as VP, Biden plans to run for president and he knows, like all the rest of us, that his time could be as early as 2016. Obama's heart is not in the game anymore, but Biden's is and I don't underestimate the power of desire.
Biden is a believer and more importantly a believer in the Democrat party. Unlike Obama he is a true blue Democrat. O is a progressive, which in my mind means hater. O has no respect for Romney, but he does have disdain (maybe not for Romney personally, but for people like him) as a result he chose to ignore his would be challenger rather than prepare for him. (Not to mention it's becoming abundantly clear O has no material to speak of and no ideas and so preparation was probably useless) Biden will not make the same mistake. He believes in the cause, his career, his party and mostly his reputation as Good Ol Uncle Joe who can get tough when he has to... Just ask Bork.
Lastly, he's done this before. Ryan has not, at least not like Biden. He can handle the pressure and move on from his mistakes, which he has made a lot of over his career. I'm not so sure how Ryan will respond when he gets into a sticky situation during this debate. Will he lose his cool?
What we have going for us in this race tonight is talent and message. Ryan has the talent and the message down pat, but is not an experienced debater. I'm not going to spend tonight's debate waiting for a gaffe from Biden, but I will spend it expecting Ryan's message to get out. If he is calm I think he will do that. This President is the worst. I mean the worst ever! I'm not so sure if he is actually talented, or intelligent or even kind hearted anymore, but he needs to go. I suspect Romney will have to do almost all the heavy lifting.
