Well let's hope the Palin/Biden debate won't be quite so close. Of course that one has a new dynamic given Biden is a veteran man and Palin is Palin. I just wish they would stop keeping her so protected from the press.

No, not a game-changer, but McCain needed it to lean more toward him than it did. The way I'm reading it, it didn't change opinions much for McCain, but more people now have confidence in Obama which is the last thing the republicans wanted.

McSame was at the top of his game. I think the debate was a tie and I am going to imagine that some of the ground Obama gained last week will be regained by McBlame this week. Until Thursday night, that is.
I was so in hopes that the Presidential Debate was going to be a game-changer and it wasn't.

I wish they would actually interact with each other rather than just reiterate their stump speeches. I think that Obama did better than McCain, but neither one of them seemed overly engaged in a conversation.

Can't wait for the Biden/Palin Roast ... oops.. "debate"

Personally I feel that voting should be an earned privilege and that you should be required to know the political platforms of all the political parties and be required to watch the debates. I find that too many people are completely ignorant of how the candidates stand on issues. These people look like fools and basically they are.

McCain is not going to talk about his platform because it sucks. If anyone knew what he intended to do he probably would get very few votes other than the GOP base. That's why the party focuses on mud slinging. Would you actually vote for someone who said, " I'm going to take away money from every program you need and apply it to the defense budget so that I can focus more on starting and sustaining more wars, I'm going to ignore poor people and middle class people to give more money to Warren Buffet and Bill Gates even though they have both asked me not to, I'm going to put a nuclear reactor in YOUR back yard unless you're rich and then you have nothing to worry about....................Well, that's just some of the bad news that John McCain basically told the American people on Friday night.

I also heard that more democrats watched and that kind of skweed the polls. I'm hoping that if more dems watched that means more of us are concerned and will vote. Let's hope!

The polls also said that as far as exceeding expectations it was McCain 60% and Obama 57%. I took that to mean more people expected Obama to do well to begin with! LOL!! McCain did better than I thought he would, too. I just wish he'd say more about what he plans to do and less about what he thinks of Obama.

One thing I noticed last night was that McCain never looked directly at Obama, but Obama frequently spoke directly to and looked at McCain. Maybe he's intelligent enough not to say EVERYTHING he thinks about Obama.

Actually I will give McCain some credit. He did better than I thought he would............but he still reminds me of gramps on "The Real McCoys". McCain's theme seemed to be about reliving the past - Look at me, I'm old, I've suffered. I was afraid that he was going to start sniffling. Barack spoke of the future. It was just like I would have imagined - the ramblings of an out of touch geezer trying to hold his own with an young intelligent Harvard grad.

According to early polls, Obama won 51% to 38%. I like this quote:

"Who won the debate? Much depends on the candidates' networks of spin doctors, who try to manipulate the debate's outcome. As the debate mostly dealt with security, Mr McCain's key issue, he should have won. Everything, though, points to a victory for Mr Obama, who thus extends his lead over Mr McCain."
