Long Live the Moderator
ABC's Martha Raddatz got much praise for her smart and swift moderating — with some people tweeting that SHE was the evening's winner.
A noted exception: Fox News host Sean Hannity, who tweeted, "Martha Raddatz is the worst moderator ever." He and some others believed she was too quick to cut off Ryan and to let Biden talk over him.
In any case, her performance was seen by most as a clear contrast to PBS' Jim Lehrer's in last week's debate between Obama and Mitt Romney.
