Vice President Joe Biden and Republican challenger Rep. Paul Ryan faced off in the vice presidential debate of 2012 Thursday night.
Biden and Ryan discussed Medicare, Iran, taxes, abortion and several issues during the 90-minute debate, which was moderated by ABC's Martha Raddatz. Unlike PBS' Jim Lehrer, who moderated the presidential debate on Oct. 3 between President Barack Obama and Republican hopeful Mitt Romney, Raddatz received mostly positive reviews.
Hollywood stars young and old joined the conversation on Twitter to share their thoughts on the candidates, moderator and who won.
Here, Us Weekly rounds up some celeb tweets from Thursday's debate.
