Mike Allen / The Politico:
Palin's new plan: Go after Biden  —  ST.

McCain pulling out of Michigan  —  John McCain is pulling out of Michigan, according to two Republicans, a stunning move a month away from Election Day that indicates the difficulty Republicans are having in finding blue states to put in play.  —  McCain will go off TV in Michigan …

Mike Allen / The Politico:
McCain fate hangs on three states  —  ST. LOUIS — Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) now must win Pennsylvania, Wisconsin or Minnesota in order to get enough electoral votes to win the presidency, his campaign says.  —  Those were considered swing states in 2000 and 2004, but George W. Bush lost them both times.
Andrew Sullivan / The Daily Dish:
Live-Blogging The Veeps  —  10.30 pm.  Biden's sobriety and authority and call for fundamental change is both reasonable and solid.  It will resonate, I think.  As you can read, I began this debate feeling that she was steam-rolling him.  She was.  But it was a steam-roller coming at you on fumes, not real fuel.
Susie Bright / 10 Zen Monkeys:
Why Sarah's Sex Life Matters  —  A lot of people have said “I don't know if it's fair to look at Sarah Palin's sexuality the way people are — I just don't know if it's sexist or appropriate.  Why can't we just treat her like a human being?”  Okay, I'm going to tell you why it's appropriate for us to gloat and delve into every detail.
Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
GEN. MCCLELLAN  —  Needless to say, getting the name of the top general in Afghanistan wrong just shows that Palin is new to the subject matter.  But lying about what he said is a much bigger deal.
The New Republic:
Palin Channels Reagan  —  As Biden would say: “God love ya' Jon Chait!”  —  Was it just me, or did she quote Reagan a lot?  I don't remember any candidate recalling a former president quite that much in a debate.
