Joe Biden, Paul Ryan
Thursday's vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan generated more than 4 million tweets, according to official statistics from Twitter. And, needless to say, several of those comments came from celebrities weighing in on the election.
Here's a roundup of some of the best reactions:
Vice President Joe Biden and Paul Ryan
Vice President Joe Biden and Republican vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan came out swinging in Thursday's one and only debate between the V.P. candidates, trading political and personal barbs in a 90-minute conversation that became heated at several points.
Immediately notable about the debate format was that the candidates did not stand behind podiums, but rather were seated behind a desk in office chairs, facing moderator Martha Raddatz at Centre College in Danville, Ky. The combative tone of the debate was markedly different from last week's meeting between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney, with Ryan and Biden frequently interrupting and speaking over each other to clarify their positions on domestic and foreign issues including taxes, health care, and the removal of troops from Afghanistan.

Vice President Joe Biden gave a nod to same-sex marriage on Sunday's Meet the Press and credited Will & Grace for changing public opinion.
While Biden declined to comment if President Barack Obama will change his position from supporting civil unions to same-sex marriage if they win a second term, Biden said he's "absolutely comfortable" with it and that the issue is "evolving." He then cited Will & Grace — the most successful prime-time show with a gay lead.
