750. Biden v. Ryan, briefly

That was a very good debate. And, to be honest, the congressman presented well. But his good presentation presented very little in the way of real plans or real reforms. I'm reminded of something my high school English teacher, Brenda Risner, wrote in my senior year book, taken from Ibsen's "An Enemy of the People" comparing Substance versus Superficiality. The substance in this debate, time and time again, came from the Vice President. Yes, I am biased, but clearly Biden won this very well contested discussion. The president must be proud and confident, but also feeling a little upstaged by his Second-In-Command. Way to go, Joe!

Never married, liberal Democrat, born in 1960, opinionated but generally pleasant, member of the Episcopal Church. Graduate of Prestonia Elementary, Durrett High, and Spalding University; the first two now-closed Jefferson County Public Schools, the latter a very small liberal arts college in downtown Louisville affiliated with the Roman Catholic Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. My vocation and avocation is politics. My favorite pastime is driving the backroads of Kentucky and southern Indiana, visiting small towns, political hangouts, courthouses, churches, and cemeteries. You are welcome to ride with me sometime.
