Oy. This is what passes for post-debate analysis on Fox News:
BARNES: He's better qualified than she is by a longshot, but, she's not going to have to be president right away, we hope, let's pray. Uh, and so is she capable of learning? Sure. Does she connect with average people? Absolutely. And I think that he tends towards senate-speak.
KONDRACKE: One other thing though, when she's at her best, she's in a good mood. She was obviously in a good mood tonight.
HUME: Yes, she did seem happy to be there and cheerful. And it didn't hurt...
KONDRACKE: When she's a little chirpy
HUME: ... that, look, Joe Biden, he looks kinda like me. He's getting on in years. She's younger.
KRISTOL: You do an injustice to yourself there.
BARNES: It helps to be in a good mood.
HUME: It also helps to be physically attractive, which she certainly is. I'm not saying he's not but she's more so and everybody can agree on that point.
