San Diego -- Non-partisan political analysts say there was no clear "winner" in Wednesday night's vice presidential debate.
San Diego News Service agrees.
Sen. Biden appeared the most knowledgeable.
Gov. Palin appeared the most charming.
Which would make the better vice president; and by a heartbeat, the better actual president? The debate did NOT decide.
Visually, Sen. Biden looked totally serious and rarely smiled.
By contrast; the young, "cute" Gov. Palin had a frozen cute smile on her face all the time.
But, there was no excitement that might change voters' minds during the entire 90-minute debate.
The lousy economy is foremost in the minds of the electorate, yet the subject received very little attention during the debate.
Some believe Gov. Palin won by not losing.
However, as TV pundits contended after the so-called debate, the really important debates will be later between Obama and McCain.
As one San Diegan commented, "the (vice-presidential) debate was really boring."
