Biden definitely recouped some of the momentum lost by President Obama's performance a week ago. The vice-presidential debate was a true exposition of whom the parties had chosen, and serves to somewhat re-balance the election heading into the homestretch.

"I want to talk to you very briefly," Martha Raddatz told Biden and Ryan, "about your own personal character... what could you both give to this country as a man, as a human being?" What Ryan brought to the debate as a human being was hard work, including the ability to cram all night memorizing his talking points, and healthy habits -- he was well-hydrated and in good shape -- but no depth or wisdom. Biden, on the other hand, brought loads of experience and much more depth. But, in a different way, no statesman-like mastery of himself. He was a 69-year-old hothead in control of the facts, but at the mercy of his anger. In our troubled times, we are in desperate need of real character in our leaders -- which calls not just for intelligence but for wisdom and the ability to navigate not just the corridors of power but the dangerous shoals of one's own emotions.

What was Biden to do when the congressman used his time to falsify the Obama record and plans? What was Biden to do when Ryan was spouting his fusillade of fabrications about Obama defanging the military or supposedly snubbing Bibi Netanyahu, or cuddling up to Assad?

Defeating Yourself: How Joe Biden Snatched a Draw From the Jaws of Victory

Biden seemed to be on steroids and amphetamines, as if he were trying to overcompensate for last week's lackluster performance by his boss, President Obama, in his match-up against Mitt Romney. This led to Biden actually punching himself around the ring a few times.

Reaction Shots Have No Place in Debates

What does that say about us when the winner of a debate is chosen, not by what they say, but by how they look and sound as they say it, or by how they react to what their opponent is saying?

If you are simply comparing Martha Raddatz to last week's moderator, Jim Lehrer, then, "mission accomplished." However, if you were to look at her performance in a vacuum, Raddatz was at times as aggressive as she was docile.

Pundits agree that the new participant, quickly identified as The Smile, influenced the debate in unforeseen ways. More surprising even than the rogue candidate's ability to enter the debate hall was his bizarrely amused demeanor during discussions of grave topics.
