I managed to stay up and watch the debate. McSame did better than I thought he would and actually looked alive. McBush needed a solid if not overwhelming win tonight to change the dynamic and he didn't get that. Obama faltered a couple of times and he was a might too polite to his opponent but over all he came off Presidential and knowledgeable. I think the win goes to Obama. He stood up against McSame and in his opponents supposed strong suit matched him blow for blow. McBush spent too much time dwelling on what has been and not what will be and that was the wrong approach. He was, I thought, a bit condescending as well which I think will hurt him.
