The sole vice presidential debate of the 2008 election season takes place Thursday night, pitting Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin against Sen. Joe Biden.

The debate kicks off at 9:00 p.m. EDT, and you can follow it live online at the CBS News Debate Webcast site. Immediately after the debate, stay with the site for Web-only analysis and commentary with Katie Couric, the CBS News political team, and guests.

You can also submit your own questions, now or during the event, at the Debate Webcast site.

The 90-minute debate will take place at Washington University in St. Louis and is set to be moderated by Gwen Ifill of PBS.
