On Facebook, VP debate beats Oscars, falls short of pres debate

(CNN) - The vice presidential debate "out-buzzed" Hollywood's biggest nights on Facebook, but wasn't nearly as popular as the presidential debate last week.

According to Facebook's "Talk Meter" analysis, Thursday's debate gained more momentum on Facebook than the 2012 Academy Awards and the MTV Video Music Awards, but when comparing it to three political events – the first presidential debate and both parties' political conventions – Thursday night's debate paled in comparison.

Ryan talks debate prep over ice cream

St. Petersburg, Florida (CNN) – During an ice cream stop Wednesday, Paul Ryan acknowledged Joe Biden's debate experience might give him an edge during their upcoming face off but Mitt Romney's running mate said his challenger has one big weakness: Barack Obama's record.

"Joe Biden has been on this stage many times, this is my first time so sure it is a nervous situation because Joe Biden is one of the most experienced debaters we've had in modern politics. But the Achilles heel he has is President Obama's record and I am really looking forward to giving the American people a very clear choice," Ryan said.
