One more on style vs. substance

A friend just re-tweeted this:
This has nothing to do with substance. If Ryan had spoken like Biden, and vice versa, he would have won. Style matters.
Am I crazy, but does the substance inform the style? Does the fact that Biden could confidently call out Ryan for actually lying allow a more aggressive style. Of course, Obama could have done that, too. I don’t know, I’d just like to think that who wins a debate is more than who can be the “alpha dog.”
