ST. LOUIS, Missouri (CNN) – Sen. Joe Biden called current Vice President Dick Cheney "one of the most dangerous vice presidents."

Biden said he will serve a different role than Cheney if Barack Obama was elected president.

"I would not be the president," said Biden. "But I would be there to give advice."

    "the most dangerous vice-president" is an understatement

    Fortunately, Cheney is not up for re-election. We have change for the BETTER as an option.

    McCAIN 08.

    If Biden is elected Vice President he will become the most dangerous ever. He will loose his cool and tell Obama to punch the button.

    True. I think that Palin saying she agrees with dick cheney on the role of the vp is scary. She is saying she will be dick cheney. Due to her lack of experience, this makes it a more scary proposition.

    Would McCain really want advice from Palin? I think if he actually won the election she would have served her purpose and he'd kick her aside.

    McCain/Pail will be just like Bush/Cheney.

    True. Cheney is a power hungry monster. He said he would not run for president, nit because he didn't want the power, but because he is a scary gremlin that nobody would vote for.

    I am going to say this a second time will someone please explain the meaning of Achilles Heel to the Gov!
    If Joe Biden were as "flip" with her as she is with him, all hell would break loose.

    I hope Joe doesn't have any hunting trips planned in the near future.

    It scares me that Palin outright says she seeks more power for the role of VP.

    He nailed her on that topic – she aligned with Cheney and Biden pointed out Cheney's record and toxicity.

    Not quite a knockout by Biden but overall a clear TKO; McCain can't quit on her but he sure has to be regretting the "decision"

  23. America think for you

    Joe Biden put that cheerleader out of words. America look at her debate answers she is clueless and not ready to lead this great nation. I do not know that if she did not answer the question asked but, she did not answer them directly. Joe Biden is the projected winner of that debate

    Finally...someone says what we all know is true. Dick Cheney practices politics like he hunts...blindfold, shotgun, and a mall full of people...someone is going to get hurt. More often than not, the American People.

    As a Canadian (Toronto), whose leadership debates are also happening tonight, I find the AMerican leadership debates much more interesting and more reflective of a global politcial perspective.

    One difference between Biden and Palin ... if things come to the worst and one of them becomes President I would feel way more confident with a president Biden. But I need to admit ... if if comes to questions about Alaska, he just cannot beat Palin's experience.
