Okay, you know the drill: I’m going to take some time off to recharge the batteries and read up a bit more, but will be back to live-blog the Biden-Ryan debate. It will run from 9:00-10:30 EDT, so I’ll probably check back in at around 8:30 (I’m doing a brief appearance on Washington’s WTOP radio at 7:30). Please feel free to use the comment thread to make your own predictions or observations about the debate.
