DANVILLE, Ky. - Democrat Joe Biden and Republican Paul Ryan pull up a couple of chairs tonight for a vice presidential debate that has mushroomed in importance since Mitt Romney's strong showing in the first presidential faceoff.

This time, it's the Obama team looking to put the brakes on the other guy's momentum.

The veep showdown at Centre College in Danville, Ky., matches up two skilled politicians with strong policy credentials and very different styles.

It's 69-year-old Biden's folksy appeal and solid vice presidential portfolio vs. 42-year-old Ryan's intensity and extensive knowledge of the federal budget and economy from 14 years in Congress.

The debate will cover both foreign and domestic topics. It will be divided into nine, 10-minute segments that begin with a question from moderator Martha Raddatz of ABC News.
