Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
This much we pledge—and more. -JFK
Biden was very restrained last night. Was it because he didn't want to be perceived as the bully, beating up on a woman, or was it because when he lets loose and speaks off the cuff he becomes a gaffe machine? I don't think we'll ever know that. However, he had one moment when he dropped the facade of a Senator with 35 years experience debating on the floor and let his emotions show, and it was powerful.
If Biden had more moments like this during the debate, moments when he showed real passion for any other issue, I think he would have won. As it was, Biden did a good job, but not good enough.
