The first and only vice presidential debate between Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine will take place Tuesday night at 9:00 p.m. on CBS. It’s the debate that political nerds, and practically no one else, have been waiting for.

Fans of generic white dad-bros might get a kick out of tonight’s showdown between two career politicians who sorta look like the guy who sold you a suit at Jos. A. Bank that one time. But the vice presidential debate doesn’t have the same potential for fireworks that the made the first debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton such a highly-rated affair.

Here’s a look at how the two candidates measure up:

Mike Pence (R)

Successful business man

Nickname: “That guy”

Occupation: Governor of Indiana

Personality: Assistant JV football coach, the quiet kind who just stands there nodding while the head coach yells a lot

Favorite movie: Rudy, war movies

Hidden talent: Irish goodbye’d his own wedding and no one noticed

Why he’s running: “I didn’t have anything better to do.”

Tim Kaine (D)

Senior business man

Nickname: “Who?”

Occupation: U.S. Senator from Virginia

Personality: Dad who uses every social gathering as an excuse to perform magic tricks and/or plug his mediocre dad band

Favorite movie: Frasier (the television show)

Hidden talent: Extensive, unexplained knowledge of golf despite having never played

Why he’s running: “Hillary might die. That’s off the record.”
