Vice presidential hopefuls Joe Biden and Sarah Palin will face off in their first and only debate Thursday, most likely touching upon the teetering economy, the war in Iraq, and the issues of experience and leadership.
The debate will probably bypass technology issues. But assuming it doesn’t, what type of expertise does each bring to the table?
Biden, a Democrat and senator from Delaware since 1972, chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Drugs. Palin, a Republican, served as the mayor of her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska and took office as Alaska’s governor in late 2006.
