The tale of the tape reveals that Raddatz challenged Ryan nine times and Biden only once.
She was very specific with questions pointed at Ryan but only once asked the Obama administration to defend their policies.
So, if you liked Biden you would have liked Raddatz as well.
Be it Libya, Iran, unemployment, abortion, the budget or past voting record, it was all directed at Ryan.
I don't have to guess who Martha voted for in 2008 or who she's supporting this year.

To a large extent, that was because the Vice President was very specific and precise in his comments and Ryan was not. Ryan tried to talk in broad sweeps and grand policies instead of the specific information people watching the debate wanted to hear about. Raddatz was trying to get Ryan to commit himself to the ticket's priorities and policies. If Ryan had been as specific as the Vice President was being, Raddatz would not have had to challenge him.
