I have not been happy with Joe Biden many many times during the Bush administration, but tonight he did the only thing I really wanted him to do: he brought it to John McCain, and he brought it hard. Finally someone really pounded him like we NEED them to do in order to win this thing.
UPDATE: Wow I was wrong - I only heard a bit of the end of John Kerry's speech. He slapped down McCain pretty darn good too:
Let me tell you, before he ever debates Barack Obama, John McCain should finish the debate with himself. And what's more, Senator McCain, who once railed against the smears of Karl Rove when he was the target, has morphed into candidate McCain who is using the same "Rove" tactics and the same "Rove" staff to repeat the same old politics of fear and smear. Well, not this year, not this time. The Rove-McCain tactics are old and outworn, and America will reject them in 2008.
So remember, when we choose a commander-in-chief this November, we are electing judgment and character, not years in the Senate or years on this earth. Time and again, Barack Obama has seen farther, thought harder, and listened better. And time and again, Barack Obama has been proven right.
