One's idea of the winner may vary according to what one is looking for in a president.

As for the political commentators who felt Obama should have been more combative, or shouldn't have said I agree with Senator McCain on that point---I can only say they do not clearly understand that many Americans are looking for a new kind of administration which will bring about REAL CHANGE, and having an articulate, cerebral president who is interested in finding common ground with those of opposing views is something to be desired.
