Well, now that you've had a chance to ponder the debate between Sarah Palin and Joe Biden overnight, what do you think? Did either candidate manage to move the ball forward for their campaign?
What's your reaction?
Here's what Jill Hazelbaker - the Salem native and former Gordon Smith staffer who is John McCain's communications director - had to say:
Tonight, Governor Palin proved beyond any doubt that she is ready to lead as Vice President of the United States. She won this debate, putting Joe Biden on defense on energy, foreign policy, taxes and the definition of change. Governor Palin laid bare Barack Obama's record of voting to raise taxes, opposing the surge in Iraq, and proposing to meet unconditionally with the leaders of state sponsors of terror. The differences between the Obama-Biden ticket and the McCain-Palin ticket could not have been clearer. The American people saw stark contrasts in style and worldview. They saw Joe Biden, a Washington insider and a 36-year Senator, and Governor Palin, a Washington outsider and a maverick reformer. Governor Palin was direct, forceful and a breath of fresh air.
