What now for the next one?
I say I was a little worried because, as political junkies know, foreign policy was, and I suppose but to a lesser degree, still is John McCain’s strong point.
I was thinking that McCain would make a comeback in the debate and show how much he was in front of Obama in those factors that are, as a whole, the policy that McCain claims to be his own.
I was surprised that McCain didn’t get that killer dig into Obama and more surprised that Obama not only stood toe to toe but on a few points swiped at McCain and hit.
I don’t think there was a defining winner last night – I do think it was a draw, but that means, well at least to me, that Obama came out on top. Basically because last night’s debate wasn’t supposed to benefit him.
McCain looked uncomfortable at times, he rarely if at any time spoke directly to his opponent and did get tetchy – but that is understandable. Everything that can go wrong is going wrong for McCain. Instead of an international conflict and crisis – it is a domestic one and one that most say is Obama’s field of play.
Thursday we will see Biden/Palin – that must be a good one because even my wife wants to watch it.
