Debate Body Language: What Did It Say?

Engaging, Or a Turnoff?

While many found Biden's grins infectious, some found them immature.

"That mugging, those condescending looks — it was a complete turnoff," said body language expert Lillian Glass, author of the upcoming "Body Language Advantage." "He was bullying, he was smug, he interrupted ... I think he lost a lot of his message based on facial gestures."

Biden may have been deemed the winner by many, but "from a body language point of view, he did not win this debate," she said.
