***He def had Obama on the defensive...but then Obama kept pace dealt with the Bill Ayers thing very well, Obama did very well on education, health care, and the economy and he closed well...McCain's facial expressions and attitude will hurt him, and that is because his temperament has already been under question. It fits with the idea that he is an angry old man. McCain needed a grand slam tonight, and he did not have that. Obama played it kool(sometimes too kool)but he was also reassuring. Obama won. Now it is up to the American people to make their decision. It should be interesting.

I've been hearing that from commentators since the first debate. Seems to me being on the defensive can be a good thing when Obamam answers every challenge laid in front of him. But McCain usually (especially at the first debate) runs off onto another topic. People (not you) say Obama doesn't answer questions and then complain about him being on the defensive? Makes no sense.
