DANVILLE, Ky. -- (WDRB) On this day after the vice presidential debate, the pundits are analyzing who came out on top. But there is little debate that Centre College is a big winner.
The debate stage is nearly torn down, but Centre College is still basking in the glow of last night's event.
As the security barriers come down, and the journalists file their final reports, Centre is giving itself high marks for it's debate performance.
"In most of life, there's not really much that's perfect. But what we did yesterday was nearly flawless," said Centre College President John Roush.
Centre's president says the college will reap the benefits for years to come.
"Centre College, Danville, Boyle Co., and the Commonwealth of Kentucky were big winners yesterday, and that can only be for good."
The few students who were allowed inside the hall say it's an experience they'll never forget.
"I was sitting 10 feet away from Chuck Todd, and Bret Baier, and Shep Smith. Being on the platform and getting that view and all that kind of energy up there was just astounding," said Will Troy.
"When Paul Ryan was talking, I know Joe Biden was making a lot of faces, reacting, being very expressive. It was just really cool to see that the entire time. To get that full experience, I know, I will take with me for the rest of my life," said George Florez.
In fact, there was lots of talk today about the debate's aggressive tone and the vice president's seemingly dismissive demeanor.
"I mean that's what the opponents talk about and they play that up, but ultimately, I don't think that's what most voters are basing their decision on," said political science professor Benjamin Knoll.
This is was Centre's second vice presidential debate. Will the college try for a third?
"Give us the weekend to think about that. Certainly, we were so excited about having done this and honored to be part of it. I would certainly never say no," said debate co-chair Clarence Wyatt.
"I'm not hesitant to suggest that we might do this, or something like this, again," said President Roush.
So, after a year of preparation and anticipation, the big challenge for Centre College may be returning to normal.
