Vice President Joe Biden, after striding on stage to the theme from “Rocky,” spoke glowingly of candidate Hillary Clinton and managed for the most part to convince America that he should have run instead. Love or hate him, he was a hard act to follow.
Tim Kaine is an able, competent politician. But, man, after that Biden speech and the expectation of the Obama speech, he is overshadowed.

Overshadowed is a kind way of putting it.
Tim Kaine is who you name as vice president when you'd rather not name a vice president. #demsinphilly

Biden’s dynamic performance probably wasn’t the best lead-in for Tim Kaine, as pundits were more interested in his tie — and not because they liked it, either.

This tie is a disaster.

Make Tim Kaine's Tie Great Again

Did he just finish up a leg as an airline steward and keep the tie? https://t.co/3HCNXWpaqU

Tim Kaine wearing a blue shirt and that tie is proof he isn't bound by focus groups and flacks

Tim Kaine's tie a heavy-handed play for fashionably clueless dads everywhere.
— John McCormack (@McCormackJohn) July 28, 2016
Haven’t you heard? Normcore is hot right now with millennials, as is the dad bod. Kaine’s total lack of style is in style.

So, those vice presidential debates will be something, huh?
Who’s getting excited for the Tim Kaine/Mike Pence VP debate??

Man, this Kaine-Pence debate is going to be DYNAMITE.

Kaine/Pence debate is going to be a scorcher.

Suggestion: Cancel the VP debate. Because seriously who is going to watch Tim Kaine and Mike Pence for two hours

Insomniacs of the world undress! A Pence Kaine debate is nigh.

What makes me think that the Kaine-Pence debate is going to be less than a barn-burner.

The Kaine/Pence debate will probably feel like an episode of Frasier.

The Tim Kaine – Mike Pence VP Debate might literally be the worst hour of television I the history of television.

The Kaine vs Pence debate might look like Suburban Catholic Dad argues with Suburban Evangelical Dad
— David Byler (@davidbylerRCP) July 28, 2016
Can't wait to watch the Tim Kaine-Mike Pence debate. It'll be like watching skim milk argue with almond milk #DemsInPhilly
— Jarrett Carlen (@JarrettGC) July 28, 2016
Pence vs. Kaine in the VP debate should be interesting. In the same way that watching paint dry in a jail cell is interesting. #p2
