The wheels are in motion at Washington University in St. Louis in preparation for Thursday’s vice presidential debate between Democrat Joe Biden and Republican Sarah Palin, with expectations of tomorrow being a very busy day on campus.
Steve Givens, Associate Vice Chancellor for Public Affairs at Washington University, says this is the fourth debate hosted by the school. The previous three debates involved the presidential candidates. This vice presidential debate was initially offered to Washington State University, but that school turned down the offer in hopes of landing one of the presidential debates.
Givens says with all the attention focused on the VP debate because of Sarah Palin’s candidacy, Washington University has lucked out and is getting a lot of attention.
