My most clear-headed assessment of the debate is that it was a draw. No major screwups by either man, no clear scores. Minds will not change. In the end, mostly the expected talking points, no new ground broken; the most specific questions were avoided by both.
In other words, generally a waste of time.
I do look forward to the VP debate, expecting hilarity and the dropping of jaws. I hope I won't be disappointed.
