The Vice Presidential Debate of 2016 -- My Impressions

I watched the vice presidential debate between Tim Kaine (Democrat) and Mike Pence (Republican) tonight.  It was interesting and I felt that Pence had the better showing.

Kaine attacked Pence early and often, making accusations and issuing sound bites against Trump.  Kaine interrupted Pence in the early part of the debate, talking over Pence when it was Pence's time to speak.  Kaine came across as rude and boorish, while Pence was far more gentlemanly and polite.

I am confident that the television audience noticed Kaine's brutish behavior.  So far, every poll I have seen indicates Mike Pence won the debate by a wide margin.
