Mike Pence meets Tim Kaine: The Debate favours Pence

I watched the debate on CNN this morning and give Governor Mike Pence the edge in the first of two debates between the two Vice Presidential Nominees.  And here is why.

The former Indiana Governor was on the offense and talked most eloquently about change and alternative domestic and foreign policies  under the Trump Presidency. That could resonate with millennial voters, who are sick and tired of the gridlock  in Washington DC

Governor  Tim Kaine, on the other hand, was put on the defensive, having to justify Hillary Clinton’s policies, which are perceived as being a continuation of those of the Obama Administration. To make things worse,  he interrupted his Republican opponent during the debate on a number of occasions. He appeared nervous and unsure of himself.

I think Governor Pence could have been a better Republican nominee than Donald Trump. So it is fortunate for the Democrats that he is not running against Secretary Hillary Clinton.

Fortunately too that the Vice Presidential debate likely have very little effect on the final outcome on November 8, 2016. We have, therefore, to watch the remaining Clinton-Trump debates later this month to see whether  Mr. Tump will do much better than what he did during his first encounter with Mrs. Clinton to convince American voters that he is qualified to be the next POTUS. –Din Merican

  1. Imagine Jibby’s running mate Zahid Komidi having to justify himself in a similar debate with his opposite number, what would be the outcome?

    If it’s conducted in English the comic will be quivering in fear. His pronunciation would go haywire for sure. However, if it’s done in Javanese he would thrive. Just a thought.

    But fear not this kind of exchanges will never happen in Bolehland so long as Umno is the lynchpin.

  2. Yeah, like Trump he makes things up as he gets along. “There is an old Russian proverb that says the Russian bear never dies, but hibernates,” Pence stated authoritatively. But there never was such a Russian proverb. I suggest he get a patent on his “proverb” and do it fast.

  3. LaMoy,
    Perhaps, Trump is a better President. Let him deal with Hadi Awang. Perhaps, Trump may decree that Haron Din’d be uprooted back to Malaysia

    Trump and Clinton are two sides of the same coin, no one is “better” than the other. I have decided to exercise my democratic choice to abstain from voting for either one of them. But I will definitely involve myself to vote on those direct democratic propositions on state and local issues, some of which I am responsible to put on the ballot.
