IAWTC. He went from planned strategy & collected to blustery & whiny. There were times where he reminded me of a 10 year old trying to play grown up, mostly those gusty sighs.

I probably would have said that Obama just edged him out, but McCain's behavior was just bad manners.

I voted that Obama edged him out even though I totally agree McCain crumbled at the end. Did you notice his freeze frame expression during the beginning of the debate? He looked unnatural! It was totally weird!

I first read the fourth answer as "McCain won by a noose". Had that been true it probably would have made McCain's supporters much happier.

McCain was doing fine until he made fun of the health exception for a woman having a late term abortion. But the nail in the coffin was saying Sarah Palin understood autism more than anyone else. Sarah Palin's child has Downs Syndrome. If you use your running mate's child as a prop, at least learn what the kid's illness is.

That is EXACTLY what I said. Trig Palin has Down Syndrome, which is NOT the same thing as Autism. Good lord!

I would have said Obama flat out won, but McCain was doing well in the beginning. So, to be fair, I voted that Obama "edged him out." The split-screen was a great thing to have in this debate. I think a lot can be understood about a candidate from the way they act when they aren't supposed to be in the spotlight. If nothing else, I think that's what started McCain's downward spiral.

A true wake up call
for the Nation and the Republican Party. All Obama had to do was stay on point and not get overly distracted, and he accomplished that.
Through the Electoral Vote; he (Obama) has all but placed this election into a land slide.. It will be very interesting as to how long the Bush bashing will last, the we inherited this mess and it is taking longer to fix it than we(democrats) anticipate, well we tried to implement the necessary changes, but the Bush policies (now 1, 2, may be 3 years) have just hampered our ability (Democratic Party) to effectively implement the change policies suggested in the campaign of 2008…
It will be interesting to see if the Democrats will take full responsibility for "change"... by all indications, they will control Congress, the Senate, and yep the White House...The next 4 years the Republican Party will need to regroup, learn a very basic fact that began back with Clinton, to win the White House is not a popularity contest, it is all about grass root development, securing the Electoral Vote, and maintaining that the other Party is wrong about..(What ever)..the other party failed in leadership (what ever form or perception one can make to get a point to stick), the other party doesn't care a bit about the middle class, or lower income class (but does $500 really do much of anything), then education... then the Wealthy made too much money... (Define wealth and who really determines when one has too much)...
So with that, the Democratic Party will Party on Election night, and for 4 years they will have the "show"...the true answer of lessons learned for the Republican Party will come in 2012... The lights are very dim, and this party is over... tip of the hat to the Democratic Party for kicking the Republicans butt...
So now the Republican Party should sit back and let the Democratic Party run the show..until 2012, because first lesson learn now will be, a Senator can show up for work, write a book or two, vote present and never be held accountable..and be elected as President...WOW..Hats off..

Obama won this debate (as he has the previous ones) with class and nobility. I believe that is what draws people to him; the notion that he's humble and wise.

McCain just dug himself into a such a crap hole, he'll be stinking for months. I respected him or rather, tolerated him, and tried my best to understand where he was coming from. I'm not a crazy Democrat who only sees one side -- I hope none of us are.

But McCain's been such a brat; an old, creepy-looking, whiny, sack of crap. He's been disrespectful, ridiculously childish and painful to watch. He's a train wreck.

So, as an Obama supporter, I would like to thank McCain for being who he is -- because he totally destroyed himself without our help.

What really frustrates me, since the first debate, is McCain constantly repeating "I know how to solve this problem, I have the experience" but never providing any details.
Also, all this BS about not raising taxes... that's another huge lie of his. The fact is, raising taxes is the only way to pay for the recent bailout... unless he is willing to pay out of his own pocket, by selling all his numerous houses and cars - and expects the rest of his buddies to do the same.

I thought John McCain was downright disrespectful.
Meanwhile, I got a message from the Republicans on the answering machine today. (It's still saved...)
And all it had to say was pretty much that Obama was a terrorist. It didn't say that exactly but you know that's what they intended to say.
Of course, being friends with a terrorist at the age of 9 makes you a terrorist, right?
John McCain started out better than what I thought he would start off as and then... he started smirking. And next it was Joe the Plumber 300,000 times. It just became obnoxious listening to him mudsling his way through the questions.
Dear John McCain,
It wasn't a mudslinging competition, it was a debate.
