ST LOUIS, Missouri (CNN) - Palin's answers do not lack confidence, they lack coherence.

    omg she is so done....this is just sad! I have watched every debate since 1992 and I must say this is the saddest disply I have ever seen! Ross Perot at least knew his stuff compared to her....is she really a Govenor? If so someone needs to send aid to Alaska

    Yes. Agreed. Ignorant but confident!

    Agreed, Palin had no focus at all and her jokish manner is not something I can ever respect.

    LOL! I thought that I was the only one that noticed this.

    Exactly! Rehearsed answers. If a strong wind came and blew those notes off that podium, she's be done! Literally done!

    God help us, or as they say in Britain: God Save the Queen.

    Palin is a little out of her league. Biden is well prepared and gives articulate answers. Palin's answers seem scripted. I am a McCain supporter but I think this debate may have clinched it for Obama.

    Palin needs to stay focused on the issues. When they were debating foreign policy she was discussing energy policy in Alaska.
    She tap dances very well.

    Yeah, Palin certainly does put some force behind her answers (if she actually answers them), however, I'm not seeing where she is going...she's alot better than I anticipated I'll admit

    Palin is continually putting Biden on the defensive. She is much more natural in her presentation. It's America at it's best.

    Palin knows she is losing and is tiring!

    I'm going to get picked for VP running mate and then give a "shout out" as a response to a question.

    It is easy to tell that all her answers are rehersed since she keeps sidestepping a question she is not familiar with.

    Her answers lack answers!

    She's like a robot....programmed to say what McCain wants her to say. She hasn't said anything that makes sense...All I hear, is Maverick, Maverick, Maverick, .....

    Biden has shown that he would be an awesome President. palin, not so much, give her another 20 years or so.

    Biden can only hope to be as coherent. He flounders through every question, constantly referencing Bush. Does he really think he's running against Bush? I can barely call McCain a Republican, I always thought of him as a Democrat in past, and nothing has changed my mind there.

    God help us if the Republicans should win... Palin is completely unable to speak on her own! Everything is so coached... ughhhh

    But she does have a lot of arrogance.

    The Maverick line put the nail in the coffin on this debate. McCain should buy her a copy of hooked on phonics.

    She should stop saying "Maverick" she doesn't have the experience to be VP. She can't even answer a question correctly!!!

    boy i can't wait for the analysis on this.

    I am beginning to really hate Alaska and "Maverick." It is all she knows how to answer any question with.

    The Governor seems to be holding dear to her seemingly singular "expertise", energy. She has also failed to answer a number of questions.

    Is there any proof that Palin helped Alaska? I can't believe it!

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thinks she hasn't really answered any of the questions she's been asked. Are you serious?
