We don't get it. If people vote for presidents...and aren't that interested in vice-presidents...why do debates between VP candidates draw large audiences? The last one, between Joe Biden and Sara Palin in 2008, drew nearly 70-Million viewers. Thursday evening at 6, KXL will carry, live, a debate between incumbent vice-president Joe Biden, a Democrat, and Paul Ryan, the Republican candidate for vice-president.
It should be fascinating. There are so many things to watch for. First of all, will there be a generation gap. Ryan is a young and good looking guy. Biden is more like a charming grandpa. Will he try to teach the young whipper snapper a lesson or two? Will Ryan clean the floor with him or will that look disprespectful? Having fun yet?
One thing's for sure, we are certain to get at least one funny (or poignant) soundbite out of this. Remember these?: "Democrat wars" …"Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy" …"Who am I? Why am I here?"
Thanks for listening to FMNEWS101.
