Vice Presidential Debate Quite Testy

Viewed the Vice Presidential Debate last night, and I thought it was a tie.

I thought Mike Pence won the early part of the debate, but I think that Tim Kaine made a comeback and really knocked Pence around late in the game.

All-in-all, this was a tie.

As CNN's Paul Begala pointed out, the candidates in the debate clearly had different aims.  Mike Pence debated as if he was running for President in 2020. Tim Kaine was more of a traditional running mate who went hard after Donald Trump and challenged Pence to defend him.

It's an interesting thought, for sure.

In a larger sense, this did not change the race at all.  If you were for Hillary Clinton, then you are still for Hillary Clinton.  If you're for Donald Trump, then you are still for Donald Trump.

The next debate is Sunday between Clinton and Trump.
