Verdict: McCain vs Obama Debate

After watching Friday night’s debate and assimilating the verdicts of various analysts and pundits, I think it’s fair to say the debate was a draw, or a very slight Obama win. John McCain performed better than expected, and Obama proved, once again, that he is a very capable and knowledgeable person who can be trusted as President.

Obama landed some good punches, including a triple rendering of “You were wrong,” referring to John McCain’s Iraq war judgement. Obama also hit McCain, after McCain critisized Obama for openly endorsing an attack on Al-Queda forces in Pakistan, by dismissing McCain’s foreign policy credibility, especially after “singing songs about bombing Iran.”

McCain also scored some by trying to paint Obama as inexperienced, saying several times throughout the debate, that Obama “just does not understand.” However, he appeared dismissive and condescending toward Obama.

Next stop is the Vice-Presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin. We will be there!

    Spoil what? Waste what? Steal what?

    Barack Obama we do not doubt your intelligence. To be an effective leader one must also display honesty, compassion, & guts. Stand with Ralph Nader, Ron Paul, & Cynthia McKinney. NOT John McCain. Your choice – your move.
