Millions of eyeballs will be on the Vice-Presidential debate tonight and whether those eyeballs are Democratic or Republican, they have one thing in

That's right, there's nothing like a barbershop or beauty salon to really get people talking politics.

"I really think Biden will be aggressive." And being aggressive is just what might decide tonight's match-up.

"I do hope that he has a little more energy because Ryan...the guy's young but he's got a lot of energy about himself." But what Biden may lack in youth, he seems to make up for in debate experience.

"Having lived 69 years, he's gained a lot of knowledge...and of course Ryan appears very smart too, so it may be a draw." A great deal of the campaign has been about winning debates and coming up with the best negative ads but people in the Wiregrass are looking for something more.

"In fact voters in the Wiregrass are saying skip the negative campaign ads and instead focus on the issues."

"Jobs.. my son's been out of work for nearly two years and he hasn't been able to find employment so jobs are real important to me"

"We definitely need to have the kids in a predicament to where they can get a better education."

And no matter who wins tonight, Paula Durley says the best candidate will be the one who is clear and fair.

"They need to stay off the attack and have honest answers as to what they're going to do to get us out of the mess we're in." Which will make her feel good both inside and out no matter how her hair turns out today.

You can watch tonight's debate here on News 4 starting at 8p.m.
