If you missed Stuart's Take on the show today, you missed something new and unique. His 16 year-old daughter watched the debate with a group of friends. She does not follow the issues very closely. But she took detailed notes. And left them for Stuart when he woke up this morning:
Here’s what she said:
-“Most importantly, it’s hard to even view that as a debate considering Biden wouldn’t stop interrupting Ryan.”
-“Ryan could have been a little more aggressive.”
-“Based on sheer facts and content, Ryan won the debate and stayed collected.”
-“Overall: Biden had a strong presence with a lot to say and repaired some of the damage from Obama last week.”
-However, Ryan was more respectful and on point with great content. Ryan won based on his points and information.”
Stu present this, of course, as a proud father. But also as a direct response from an otherwise disinterested young debate viewer. Obviously, it’s not a scientific poll, and it’s not a focus group. But it says something when a youngster is so intrigued by politics that she sits through ninety minutes of “the bully and the wonk.”
What do you think of her assessment? Agree or disagree?
