I love two-shots in debates. Watching somebody talk is as interesting as watching somebody listen. And the face Biden just had while listening to Palin says a lot: slight smirk, narrow eyes, absolute game face, but maybe a little apprehension. She's not doing badly. She sounds like the Palin I've seen in archived debate footage. This is uncanny. It's like when you see footage of George W. Bush speaking as governor of Texas--witty, knowledgable and coherent. The contrast is a little striking and a little confusing.
