Poll: Biden wins debate, Palin exceeds expectations  —  (CNN) - A national poll of people who watched the vice presidential debate suggests that Democratic Sen. Joe Biden won but also hints that Republican Gov. Sarah Palin exceeded expectations.  —  The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey …
Michelle Malkin:
SARAH ROCKS!  —  First, I would like to see all the Sarah doubters and detractors in the Beltway/Manhattan corridor eat their words.  —  Eat them.  —  Sarah Palin is the real deal.  Five weeks on the campaign trail, thrust onto the national stage, she rocked tonight's debate.

Palin Takes On A New Foe: Her Image  —  Sarah Palin looked as though she had prepared for her appearance at the vice presidential debate last night by studying Tina Fey's impressions of her on “Saturday Night Live.”  She twinkled and winked and piled on the perkiness, a “darn right” here and an “I'll betcha” there.
Marisa Katz / Washington Post:
The VP Debate: The Strangest I've Ever Seen  —  Exactly an hour into the debate, Joe Biden began an answer by saying, “Facts matter, Gwen.”  —  To him, maybe.  To Sarah Palin, maybe not.  The pattern, so far, has been one of Biden presenting facts and Palin countering with... saying stuff.
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.

Paul Krugman / New York Times:
Edge of the Abyss  —  As recently as three weeks ago it was still possible to argue that the state of the U.S. economy, while clearly not good, wasn't disastrous — that the financial system, while under stress, wasn't in full meltdown and that Wall Street's troubles weren't having that much impact on Main Street.
