This writer watched closely. We felt that each candidate accomplished what they needed for this particular evening. Obama showed he could stand on the stage of foreign policy with McCain. After a tumultuous week of zig zagging McCain needed to show himself in command of his faculties.
Here are some reviews done by other media sources.
From CNN Poll:
Who Did the Best Job In the Debate?
Who Would Better Handle Economy?
Who Would Better Handle Iraq?
The polls are all over the place, some for McCain – some for Obama. It looks like the trend is for Obama.
This was a draw – but in this case the ties goes to Obama.
