9:04 PM: I'm not sure they're ready for Joe Biden.
9:06 PM: Ryan looks out of his depth.
9:12 PM: Curious what values Ryan is talking about apologizing for.
9:19 PM: Pretty clearly Biden got a lecture about smiling when he's off camera.
9:23 PM: Apparently the reporters at the debate are all chattering about Biden's smiles and smirks when Ryan's talking.
9:26 PM: Okay, I think this is what Dems were waiting for from Obama. Never going to get something like this from Obama. This is vintage Biden.
9:29 PM: "I always say what I mean. And so does Mitt Romney."
9:30 PM: My sense so far is that these two guys are both doing a pretty solid job. In very different ways. But both hitting key marks. The tide keeps running back and forth.
9:32 PM: That was the best run for Biden so far.
9:33 PM: Ding! Stimulus.
9:35 PM: Ryan held his own, maybe even better than that on foreign policy. Biden owned him on domestic policy.
