While Joe Biden had to escape into misrepresentations his opponent Governor Sarah Palin surely surprised her worst critics and biggest fans with a superb straight forward performance, bringing my and Nostradamus' presidential prediction a huge step forward: No more edited interviews but a full length debate with a fabolous vice presidential candidate on the Republican side who earned all the respect for re-injecting momentum into John McCain's campaign.
Watch out for coming polls and odds, or even better: Tonight Las Vegas bookmakers still give you odds of 3.00 on a Republican presidential election win - that's so much more value than the stupid 1.33 odds on Obama's ticket; have a bet if you may! Because we have just seen a mind- and gamechanger where Governor Sarah Palin was clearly on message all way long, was articulate, effective, real, sincere and authentic, humorful, generous and most entertaining, while obviously even Joe Biden couldn't help it but find her likeable.
American politics found a new and intelligent superstar with great skills in communications, who took on a very experienced six-term senator, was confident, assertive, well prepared and surely having fun, who was merciless against Barack Obama's arrogant, naive and dangerous policies and who came up tonight with a much better performance than John McCain himself has shown us until now. Congrats and thanks to Sarah Palin for that brilliant debate.
