This is the shining moment of the debate. This is where Biden won it. He is just so genuine.
I keep thinking about this moment over and over. And here is what struck me. Without even meaning to, Biden did something very important for women in this election. Palin plays the “mom” thing over and over again. She’s just a hockey mom, she’s got kids, blah blah blah. She talks about hardships. These are things that resonate with women. He showed that these are things that resonate with him as well. He was a single parent. He had to be a father, and a mother, at the same time. So really, what he did, was show that women don’t have to vote for another woman to get someone who understands those experiences. That’s huge.
And Sarah Palin didn’t even acknowledge what he had said or what he did. She could have said something nice, but she didn’t. Heartless. Mean. Unqualified.
