On Tuesday night the Vice Presidential nominees, Tim Kaine (D-VA) for the Democrats faced off against Governor Mike Pence (R-IN) for the GOP. The two men squared off on national television from the auditorium at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. The debate was highly anticipated as it offered America the opportunity to see two “normal” politicians (basically anyone not named Trump or Clinton) debating the most important issues of this campaign season.
While the 90-minute debate likely didn’t swing any new voters one way or the other, it did offer the nation an opportunity to see the two men who were hand-picked to be the VP nominees.
In the aftermath of the debate many pundits declared Pence the obvious winner, not because of anything that Pence was able to accomplish, but simply by virtue of Kaine’s overtly annoying display. While Pence and Kaine both made solid points for their side, Pence was able to maintain his calm and remain dignified throughout the entire debate, even as Kaine devolved into a whiny, interrupting mess.
