Debate III: Quick thoughts

First, Schieffer was by far the best moderator. His questions were direct, and the format that allowed the candidates to talk to each like (i.e. debate) made for some good exchanges and contrasts.

McCain seemed particularly angry, and someone should explain to him that Downs Syndrome is not the same as autism.

Obama was his usual cool self. He also spent far more time looking into the camera.

This race was over before the debate. It is still over.

By the way, there is nothing funnier than watching the networks interview undecided voters in these focus groups immediately post-debate. Or terrifying. Actually, it is terrifying.
