Is your hangover from last week's presidential debate finally gone? Good, because it's time for the veep candidates to debate.
Running mates Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence will face off Tuesday at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. Though their matchup certainly won't provide anywhere near the amount of drama the first debate did, it will be interesting — if only because both men will have to spend most of the show cleaning up after their candidates.
