I refuse to get too wrapped up in the question of who "won" the debate. In general, unless one candidate obviously self-destructs, this question is answered subjectively and personally. That's not to say I didn't think Biden did better. I did.
McCain's scandalous gambit to politicize the nation's economic crisis with still more wild stunts this week sure looks like a last-ditch effort to keep Sarah Palin from being further exposed as a lightweight.
The notion that there's any serious doubt over the meaning of the Bush Doctrine is as credible as the notion that there is any serious doubt in the scientific community on the basic reality of global warming.
Her performance was so strong and so well focused that it would be foolish not to immediately send her out on the campaign trail and/or to as many television interviews as she can squeeze into her schedule.
Sarah Palin may not have known what the Bush Doctrine was, but we're getting a pretty good idea of what the Palin Doctrine is. And what is it going to look like? Let's just say, it's going to seem familiar.
