    From what I saw, she did very well.

    I thought she did well.

    Reading on the conservative blogs, the one complaint I saw was that she almost always gave Biden "the last word."

    I didn't notice myself, but I guess that's something.

    maybe she was smart enough to realize that she had to be very careful with all the prior speculation....

    The only thing I noticed was the question about some Senate or Congress bill about making it harder for mortgage-lenders to declare bankruptcy... WHAT?

    That was obviously an easier question for Biden seeing how he had to vote on it...

    Maybe its just me but I thought that could be seen as unfair.

    Other than that I thought she was completely fair.

    Leading up to this evening. She was irresponsible, and unprofessional.

    Tonight she wasn't biased toward Biden.....she was careful.

    Are you talking about Gwen, or Plaxico Burress?

    Never heard of her until the multiple "oh no, not her threads."

    I was impressed. Very professional. Totally non partisan.

    Thats not a shot at BBgun, imo....she could step in in a pinch if Leonard Davis ever goes down.

    Gwen Ifill was great - she was superior to the intrusive Jim Lehrer who sought to direct the debate to the point he seemed to fuss over the candidates direct interaction.

    Gwen was firing questions at a pace that drove the debate at a fair clip yet were leading enough to allow her and us to kick back and enjoy the unforced flow between Palin and Biden. There were long stretches where I even forgot that she was there.

    Now THAT'S the mark of a good moderator.

    Awesome job by Gwen Ifill.
