Lots to think and talk about Friday’s debate, but because work over the next few days is going to be a bear I’ll probably be limited to this until Wednesday or so. Also, I’ve made a point not to watch or read any commentary on the debate until I can get some independent thoughts down, so forgive me if I’m repeating anything.
Although the idea that of one of the candidates wins a debate and one loses it has always seemed a bit weird to me, I think Senator Obamba came across as more prepared, knowledgeable, confident, etc. In a word, he seemed more “presidential.” If nothing else, he was able to actually engage Senator McCain face to face as Jim Lehrer requested. McCain just couldn’t seem to bring himself to look Obama in the eye and get into a dialogue. Not sure why. But everyone is going to see “presidential” through their own lens, so I’d love to get your feelings on the matter.
Let’s start with your input – did you come away from this knowing more than you did before? If so, what?
