Thousands Watch VP Debate on Centre lawn
Over the cries of a protestor in a tree, a crowd of thousands at Centre College's vice presidential debate festival listened intently to the broadcast of the debate on a large screen TV on the campus lawn. Hearing the debate proved challenging as an anti-abortion protestor shouted from up a tree on the edge of the festival lawn. He was still shouting nearly an hour into the debate, having climbed even higher to avoid law-enforcement agents who had put up a ladder.
