All Politics are Local
Successful VP Debate has Officials Looking Ahead
As the dust settles on this year’s vice presidential debate at Centre College, local officials are saying the school is ready for the next step. Centre College has now held two vice presidential debates: this year’s and 2000's. Those debates will be historically known for two different styles between candidates—Vice President Dick Cheney and Senator Joe Lieberman were cordial in 2000, while Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan were much feistier this year. But behind the scenes, both debates are known for how smoothly everything ran.
