Biden vs. Ryan Preview

Honestly, I’m not sure what to expect in tonight’s Vice Presidential debate in Danville, Kentucky, between Paul Ryan and Joe Biden.  I suppose Joe Biden was coached all week to avoid gaffes, and take the fight to Ryan.  I suppose Ryan worked on beating back Biden’s inevitable accusations while not coming off as too wonkish.

This debate should be like a Rorschach ink-blot test — people will see what they want to see.

I suppose that if the left says anything but “Joe Biden was the clear winner tonight!” then Ryan won.  Obama’s team has no choice but to immediately spin this debate as a victory for Biden no matter what happens (unless it’s a complete debacle).  It does say a lot about Obama’s position when his team has to hope Joe Biden moves the needle in Obama’s direction.
