So the first (and only) Vice Presidential debate is taking place tonight. There’s been a lot of chatter, in the blogosphere, the mainstream media and, undoubtedly, in more than a few personal conversations, about the importance of this debate. Considering that this is the only time we will be able to see Sen. Joseph Biden and Gov. Sarah Palin face off, I am hoping that people tune in. The debate will be moderated by Gwen Ifill, who moderates Washington Week and is a senior correspondent on NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. Ifill also moderated the 2004 debate between Dick Cheney and John Edwards in 2004. I think its going to be an exciting two hours and I hope everyone tunes into all the major channels at 9pm EST.
