Ooooooh, what fun! I love, love, love debates!
Going into this debate, I expected to be rather bored as Obama looked inanimate and disorganized next to Hillary, and I expected McCain to look old and slow next to Obama.
Thankfully, I was wrong on both accounts.
I was so surprised at some of the arguments.
And I must say the best thing about this debate, was that they were different on almost every issue, and I that's good!
If you care, as I watched the debate on cnn.com, I wrote a couple impressions down. Nothing revolutionary. Feel free to add something with actual meaning in the comments ;0) But here it goes:
My bracelet is better than your bracelet. Not the best debate topic.
I am surprised at how strong MCain sounds. He comes across really knowledgeable.
McCain makes Obama sound like a lil boy.
Oh, well, when I was in Pakistan and Afghanistan and in war and lost and was under Regan...blah blah.
Makes Obama sound like he just fell off the turnip truck
OH wait- He did (in senate years that is)
This is the 1st time I have seen Obama look good and sound good. I never saw the "charisma" of Obama's speaking everyone talks about.
I think he will only get better.
I wish McCain did not have such a left-field VP. I don't get her. I just don't.
It started boring, but got better.
They were both very John Kerry on the 1st couple questions.
I don't think sitting at the table means you love what they do or legitimize them.
Their power legitimizes them already.
Obama does sound like change next to McCain.
McCain sounds a lil stale in his ideas.
Very different dudes. I like it. Good debates a comin.
VP debate should be a slaughter though.
McCain cries on that day- I bet you
Obama: Kissinger said THIS.
McCain: Well when we were disco hoppin in the 70's, he told me THAT.
McCain: I saw 3 letters in Putin's eyes: KGB
He says no cold war, but it sounds pretty cold to me.
We are in a financial crisis and we are supposed to "rebuild Georgia's economy"?
We NEEEED to all drive non oil cars like NOW.
No YOU don't walk your talk
NO YOU don't walk your talk
Duh- they're politicians.
Do you think we really "are a long way from safe?" (re: 9/11)
EITHER McCain is built weird or his suit doesn't fit.
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! McCain just called Obama a Bush-like-stubborn-idiot!!! OMG!!!!
The balls on this one!!!!!
McCain sounds great but looks SOOO old next to Obama.
And he kinda sounds like Bush when he talks.
OMG, what if that VP lady became prez- eeeeeeek!
It took me like forever to stop focusing on Obama's ears.
I miss Hill-Dog!
