Speak Out: Who Won the Vice Presidential Debate?

Tell us: Who performed better at Thursday's debate? Did the debate strengthen or hurt either campaign?

Vice President Joe Biden and Republican hopeful U.S. Rep Paul Ryan engaged in their first and only debate Thursday night in Kentucky.

The debate fell a week after the first debate between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney, in Denver, and just days before their next meeting Oct. 16  at Hofstra University in New York.

Viewers in Virginia had different opinions about what topics covered tonight would matter most to voters in the Commonwealth.

Other Virginia residents interviewed after the debate said the candidates' differing views on abortion stood out.

Tell us: Who performed better at Thursday's debate? Were there any questions you would have liked asked ? Did the debate strengthen or hurt either campaign? Was there a clear winner?

Interesting article on lack of specifics in Ryan budget, http://campaignstops.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/09/edsall-the-ryan-sinkhole.

Jade: I believe the bulk of the Romney's "charity" is to the Mormon church....which does virtually nothing to help the millions of uninsured/underinsured Americans....there is no way "charity" can solve the problems related to poverty in our nation. And if the government "stopped taking taxes out of your paycheck"....we wouldn't really have a government, would we? I hope you realize all the good services government provides that you help pay for.

Jade, Jade....the "experts" at the insurance companies are only interested in maximizing their profits! For their shareholders. They are not committed to providing the best health care. Can't tell you how many times w/ elderly parents...hospitalized, in nursing homes....we had to fight with the insurance companies for coverage. They just wanted to kick you out of the hospital and go home to be cared for by an 80+ year old spouse. All so they could save money. Doctors know best about what is needed for patients...not insurance companies.

Excellent description and summary, Paul! I totally agree!
