Mike Pence can try all he wants to downplay the crises our country faces.

More than 800,000 women dropped out of the workforce last month. Trump and his administration is doing nothing to stop it.

How much more loss can we afford? Will you chip in to help Women's March organize millions of women voters this election? bit.ly/2SAloxt

...very much either way.

Which is just fine as far as the Biden campaign is concerned, since Trump is the one who need to change the trajectory.

But Harris' arguments, although good, aren't the kind of arguments that I see overcoming Pence's BS for people who aren't already well-informed on the issues enough to recognize those lies.

And that wasn't at all based on debating issues, but on Trump plainly being a complete ass.

This debate is much calmer, even with the amount of interruption going on. Neither person is scoring any knock-out hits on the other, not by the standards of people who don't know the issues well enough that they haven't already made up their minds.

I can't believe Pence was asked a question how the Trump administration would protect people with pre-existing conditions if the ACA was struck down by the Supreme Court, which he completely ignored and instead asked Senator Harris if she and VP Biden would pack the Court if elected, and then, unbelievably, accused Senator Harris of not answering his question. Instead of responding to Pence's question, I'd have liked to have seen her call out Pence by saying, "The question posed by the moderator was how will the Trump administration protect those with pre-existing conditions, and you completely ignored the question. You didn't answer the question because you can't; like this administration always does, you're afraid to be honest with the American people about what your position really is. Administration officials will tell you people with pre-existing conditions won't be excluded from insurance coverage, but you won't guarantee that insurance companies will be free to charge any premium they want, which will effectively exclude those from insurance that they can afford."
