Look me in the eye when you say that.
I didn’t see any knockout blows in tonight’s first presidential debate. I didn’t see any major gaffes. Each candidate held his ground. McCain did not look too old. Obama did not look too young. If you had your mind made up before the debate, this debate probably didn’t change your opinion. If you were looking for a really deep discussion of the issues, you were probably disappointed. Most Americans don’t expect that from TV, except perhaps on PBS. But TV does convey some things. It is said that Nixon won his debate with JFK on radio, but lost it on TV.
Commentators are noting that Senator McCain generally refused to look at Senator Obama, which is a bit disturbing when you think about it.
Watch this YouTube clip with the sound turned off.
Then ask yourself who looked more presidential.
