Unlike President Obama, Joe Biden actually showed up for his debate with Paul Ryan last night in Danville, Ky., with the V.P. candidates putting on quite a display.
While both sides could take away plenty of political positives from the vice presidential debate, the general consensus was that it made for great TV.
Some of our favorite celebrity Twitter reactions appear below:
