I'd probably still be on the fence and really I am. Not that I'd vote or Obama, but do I have confidence in McCain? Not really. He's learned the politics game quite well and he's playing it, and that's disheartening. Watching this debate I don't see a cut and dry victory for anyone. I see a lot of posturing and political double speak. Obama seems more genuine; he's more genuine in his approach and in his message and he feels he's doing the right thing. McCain all too often simply spoke of his record and experience, but offered no tangible policy that will make a difference. He stated that something has to be done, true, but not really what has to be done. He talked about cutting spending, he mentioned a few area's and Obama countered. I didn't come away feeling he has an answer. Overall, in terms of economy, I'd say they both make salient points and I'd have a hard time, were I not so against Universal Healthcare. The war in in Iraq and on terrorism in general, McCain hands down. I get the feeling Obama is playing to his base with his comments. I can't believe anyone in such a position is so naive about what the core of the problem is and will pander to the instant gratification sector of our society and talk about 9/11/bin Laden as though they are the root cause of the problem. They are the culmination, and very far from the root. Let's quit f-ing around and get down to brass tacks. Killing a battalion of U.S. Marines won't change American ideology, and killing a popular icon of terrorism won't defeat the ideology that spawned it. McCain came across as a bit dissembling. Neither really gave a straight forward answer, much to the mediator's chagrin, who had to ask his question thrice, but McCain never acknowledged and went off on tangents, concerning his record and experience, which doesn't afford concrete answers to now and the future. Simply: those in Obama's corner, will stay in Obama's corner, those in McCains corner will remain in his corner. I'm not overly impressed with either, but I will stick with something I've said on an occasion or two: McCain will win and hold office for a term, a Democrat will then take the White House. Probably Clinton.
