US vice-presidential debate polite and unmemorable

Their views, 26 days before the presidential elections, were predictable and there were no memorable fireworks, in contrast to the Presidential debate last week which consistently broke the bounds of civility. Donald Trump and Joe Biden are scheduled to hold their second debate on Oct 15 in Miami, Florida, although the Democratic nominee said it would be cancelled if Trump was still ill with coronavirus.
