Joe Biden vs. Paul Ryan -- 2012 VP Debate Blog

Following last Wednesday's wonky presidential debate, voters should prepare for a much more dynamic battle between two men who are well versed in tense legislative procedure.

"The bar is much lower for Paul Ryan; he just has to get through the 90 minutes without a major gaffe and everyone will think he handled himself really well," said Di Martino.

"Biden still has to answer for the past four years ... but unless there's a wipeout ... debates rarely move numbers -- the zingers are the types of things that we remember years later and say the campaign shifted at that moment. The reality is usually different," said Boucher.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 19 points, or 0.14%, to close at 13,326, closing more than 100 points below a high for the day of 13,428. The S&P 500 rose less than a point, 0.02%, to close at 1433, breaking its four-day losing streak. The Nasdaq fell more than 2 points, or 0.08%, to settle at 3049.
