Debates only showcase who is the more glib speaker. I stand by my assertion that a politician is a person who will do or say anything you want them to just to get into office...whereupon, they will then do or say whatever they want.
That being said, I may have an extremely rare bit of wine so I can laugh my ass into heart failure at the trainwreck that will be the VP debate. *grins in anticipation*
Preparation is key in a debate...which means that someone will get those questions and front them to (hopefully) both candidates. Last debate was a woeful showing by the current Pres...when altitude is called into question, well...I must turn into a blithering idiot every weekend for five months in winter...since I live at 2600 feet and spend my weekends at 5000+, doing hard physical exercise no less.
I refuse to tip-toe through life only to arrive safely at the door of death.
