Least anticipated VP debate ever?

No. But at least since 2004. Paul Ryan was responsible for all sorts of Republican excitement in 2012. And 2008– Sarah Palin vs. Joe O-Biden– now, that’s good stuff. After a couple of cycles were the VP candidates were a moderately or bigger deal, it’s kind of weird how incredibly off-the-radar the VP candidates have generally been. Sure, I’ll watch tonight, but at least half of that is out of a sense of professional obligation rather than looking forward to it.
I have no predictions, but I certainly like Yglesias’
That’s highly doable and would be fun to see.
Also, worth noting that VP debates don’t actually matter But, just because it’s highly unlikely they will influence the election, they can be good for some classic moments. Hopefully we’ll get something half as good as one of these tonight.
