Ryan: ‘One Event’ Won’t Make Race

Paul Ryan, the voice of reason? The Republican vice presidential candidate is balancing expectations for Wednesday night's debate between President Obama and Mitt Romney, telling Fox News Sunday: "I don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign." Ryan underscored Obama's certain advantages going into the debate as an "incumbent president" and "an experienced debater" who's done this jig in front of a national audience numerous times before, whereas it's "Mitt's first time on this kind of a stage." He also outlined Romney's focus for the debate: "Stagnation versus growth, dependency versus opportunity and upward mobility."
