Ah…momentum. As the National Journal pointed out, it undeniably exists in politics, and feeds off itself. Momentum drives coverage, attracts money, energizes supporters, and begets more momentum. The Romney/ Ryan ticket had the wind at its back heading into last night’s vice-presidential debate. VP Joe Biden’s assignment was to reverse, or at least stymie, that trend. What Biden did accomplish, with forceful answers and a glut of Republican-infuriating smiling and laughing, was to convince despairing Democrats to put down the hemlock and back away from the ledge. It’s less clear how Biden’s performance will play among independents. But Biden gave Democrats the antidote to the boss’s flat showing last week.
