Debate, Part 2

(Ironically, the first thing that popped into my head when I wrote that subject was "Leonard, Part 6". I have to think that the comparison is... a bit apt)

Anyway, unlike the first debate, this was an easy Obama victory. He was more specific, he was more cognizant of his policy, and he even landed better "punches", which was surprising because McCain had higher numbers on PunchTrax. The only thing Obama didn't do was shake hands with people that questioned them, like McCain did to that Navy CPO.

Using that age-old boxing analogy, this was a unanimous 12 round decision for Obama, but if this was a boxing match, announcers would be deriding it for the lack of action; a few jabs, a lot of dancing, and if there's a God, Don King hanging from a rafter.

Obama was definitely Mr. Smooth in this debate, while McCain is reminding me increasingly of Popeye's dad.
