A non-verbal observation - I missed a good chunk of the debate tonight because I was on an extended phone call. However, wasn't John McCain supposed to be this frail, old guy? For two hours, the codger stood at a podium and forcefully stood his ground. I start shifting my feet in church if I have to sing a hymn more than three stanzas.
Extra – An even-handed review from Moderate Voice: "To summarize, for two guys who have been less than sterling debaters in the past, they each presented us with surprisingly crisp, no-baloney briefs for their respective candidacies. It was all refreshingly boring and appropriately sober for our trying times."
