Obama Wins, technically
I think Obama won it. Its not so much that he trounced McCain its that he played to break even which is all he needs to do at present. John McCain is losing this election mainly because the American public blame the republican party, rightly or wrongly, for the financial meltdown and they are ultimately going to take that out on McCain. Consequently I think Obama does not intend to land a knock out blow. I think he is trying to allow his momentum carry him over the line. Unfortunately for us political junkies that means the debates, like last nights, are going to be a bit boring. Unless that is, McCain in the knowledge that he is losing, decides to go on a major offensive. You can see already he is developing a real personal dislike for Obama. Watch the frosty post debate handshake.
