Unwitting Aid.Posted: October 4, 2008
I heard on the radio that the Palin-Biden debate was the second-most watched debate in presidential election history. Not the second-highest rated vice-presidential debate; the second-most watched debate on either the presidential or vice-presidential level since televised debates began in 1960. Seventy million Americans watched it. Why do you think that was? Hint: It wasn’t Joe Biden.
But Biden was the beneficiary. Palin drew about 65 million of those people in, but once in, they saw Joe Biden make an excellent case for his ticket. They wouldn’t have seen that, had it not been for the magnetic force named Sarah Palin.
