Another One (yeah, THAT one) Is In The Books

Most of the pundits are reading tonight's debate the way the rest of us do for once. In short, it was a good night for Barack Obama. He was solid, presidential, very camera-aware, and he connected well. McCain did not have any major mistakes ... aside from calling Obama "that one" (image to the left is from Andrew Sullivan's blog). But he was a little grumpy, a little awkward at times walking around too much, and he was particularly weak on the economy. As others are saying tonight, a tie goes to the candidate who was ahead coming in. But this probably was not a tie. Obama won it on points at a minimum. We won't see polling reflecting voters' reactions to this debate until Thursday morning at the earliest but I don't think those numbers will have good news for John McCain anyway.

27 days to go!
