Win to Obama

Barack Obama looked presidential and in command of the facts. But the chattering classes will parse this for forever. Here are some insightful comments:

Not sure at which point I'll switch to Law and Order SVU. Oooh looks like it'll be very soon. McCain just can't look at Obama - so rude. Or is he frantically checking his notes or trying to keep his false teeth from flopping out.

Comments from Wash Post:

polls are showing Obama won...even among women and the over 55 crowd. huge win.

Palin/Biden should be another win if Biden keeps feet out of mouth.

It seems to me that Obama won by a nose. i agree that he wiped up on the economy.

McCain had some good points towards the end, but he hurt himself by being snide, by his sneering expression, and by his failure to ever look at Obama.

Frankly, it made me notice that McCain is shorter and older. And that he seems to have a perspective at least 20 years out of date.

Some comments on "The Fix":
- McCain's grin was scary.
- McCain's absolute inability and avoidance of Obama - refuse to address him by name and refuse to look him in the eye - smacked of disrespect at best and possibly other...motives at worst.
- Obama was right about Kissinger's stance on no preconditions. McCain was again mischaracterizing or outright lying.
- The lasting image most voters have is of McCain kissing George's a-- in 2004 so he'd have Rove and the money at his disposal in 2008.

Wow! I was surprised at Obama's performance.

I'm a delegate to the Republican convention - started re-thinking McCain when he picked inexperienced Palin - and frankly, Obama was the greater statesman tonight.

Worst of all, McCain sounded like an old man talking about the past.
