Everybody's talkin' at me - Almost everybody on my blogroll is live-blogging tonight. Me, I'll wait until it's done before gearing up again.

However, here are some pre-debate predictions. First, it will be impossible to stay on the topic of foreign policy, given the events of the past week. But if and when the topic comes to Iraq, watch for McCain to quote today's main editorial in the Washington Post, citing political progress in Baghdad. Obama will try to ignore recent developments, including the Surge, and say that it was wrong to go to Iraq in the first place. To which I imagine McCain will retort: your running mate voted for it, too. Frankly (on foreign policy), McCain has more arrows in his quiver; Obama has his 2002 speech.
