The Great Debate of '08

My bride is upstairs watching the VP nominees debate. I think it is outstanding how she is engaging this election and taking the time to educate herself on the issues and the candidates. Working, as a Christian educator in a highly secular/ academic town, she is in an environment that can be very hostile to those with her worldview. It shows wisdom that she is preparing herself in this way. It seems to be in the spirit of 1 Peter 3:15,
in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,
*By the way, I'm in the other room but it sounds to me like every time Joe Biden speaks he is yelling and acting hostile to Palin.
