Let's get the political aspect of the debate out of the way. It is fair to say that in this respect, Obama crushed McCain. Obama was specific and countered McCain's attacks well. I think the format of the debate was to McCain's disadvantage as well. Obama is tall and has a commanding presence about him. McCain just seemed uncomfortable and fake. I don't think the Republican base is going to be happy with his new economic proposal of another 300 Billion bailout on top of the one already in existence. I think he has no idea what he's talking about, and just throws stuff out there now.
As far as who showed their Christianity better, I think this isn't close either. McCain just looks downright contemptuous. He doesn't like Obama, and it shows. The reference to Obama in the language of "That One" is not going to go over well with many people. He did a little better this time in making eye contact, but he is not comfortable being around Obama.
Again, Obama was loose, genuine, and had no problems talking to or looking at McCain. The polls are already showing Obama with a huge advantage, accept for the Fox poll of course.
I will be following up with another post soon. It will be about the last few days regarding what I've seen on the Campaign trail from McCain and Palin. I'm not happy, and I need to put this into words.
