If nothing else told you she cram studied for this - the fact that she knew and correctly pronounced the Iranian leader's name (which I shall not even attempt here
); even McCain couldn't pull that off!
I liked especially the non-answer she started with talking about "cyclical" changes, but then spent her remaining time talking in circles, simply restating the question....
The McCain camp is just tickled pink she didn't fall flat on her face, for this they count it as a victory.
I think it was clear though that Obama's side pushed Joe Biden to be more "homey"; for every "up there in Alaska" Palin through, Biden returned with a "back in Scranton (Wilmington, etc...); but I still can't believe anyone thinks Palin actually WON the debate overall.
Furthermore, personally I didn't believe either one of them when they said they were behind giving equal civil rights/liberties to same sex couples. And the agreement on the marriage thing felt, well, very fake...especially when Palin did her usual and first repeated the question.
I don't think we learned anything about either candidate from this though....
