The Biden/Palin Debate. A Few Quick Thoughts.

First of all, I'm relatively relieved that the debate does not seem to have turned out a game changer (the NYT, e.g., asserts that it was not a tipping point). My biggest fear had been that, somehow, the expectations game would work and Palin, going into the debate on her disastrous interviews, would be celebrated as surprisingly strong.

Debatte Nr. 1: Report aus Oklahoma (inkl. Video)

Ich habe die Debatte in Oklahoma verfolgt. Prof. Alpers, der ehemalige Leipziger Fulbright Gastprofessor den ich hier in Oklahoma besuche, und ich sind kurz vor 8 PM CT bei der Watchparty der Studentenorganisation „OU Votes“ angekommen. Ca. 50 Studierende hatten sich im Institut für Journalistik, wo die Party stattfand, versammelt um die Debatte und das kostenlose Essen zu genießen. Während der Debatte, blieben die Studierenden erstaunlich still, abgesehen von einigen Lachern, die der Moderator Jim Lehrer erntete.

Demokraten in Oklahoma

Seit Mittwoch bin ich in Norman, Oklahoma. Erstaunlicherweise habe ich die meiste Zeit in einem für Oklahoma sehr untypischen Umfeld verbracht: umringt von Demokraten. Was allerdings weniger verwunderlich erscheint, wenn man in Anbetracht zieht, dass der Bezirk, in dem ich mich aufhalte, der einzige Bezirk in ganz Oklahoma ist, der 2004 für John Kerry gestimmt hat.
