The Vice Presidential debate is tonight!

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.
