Mr Obama, seen by voters as weaker on foreign affairs, was judged to have held his own in the debate, while Mr McCain did not manage to expose any major weaknesses in his opponent.

Obama looked and sounded like someone we want to have in charge. McCain danced around the podium like he had to pee and spit out tag lines that he has used before. Obama actually addressed his opponent and his statements, discrediting much of what McCain said.

McCain seems more and more like a midlist politician trying to put a cherry on his career. Obama more and more seems to be a rising star.
