I surely don't support McCain since I view him as a RINO (republican in name only) and I was quite surprised that Obama did as well as he did for what I thought was to be a "free form" event. (this also led me to believe that both parties were given the questions in advance - which is just wrong in my humble opinion)
But the overall comparison - I can see that my vote for McCain will not be wasted.

Obama person here...
I think Obama is going down
Hmm... is it because of some flip flop maybe?

I agree that both candidates did surprisingly well in the Saddleback Forum. It was an exciting two hours.
McCain hit a Grand Slam. I now know why Obama has avoided McCain's calls for debates... McCain definitely can stand with the best. he's candid, direct and honest - all of which I believe are important qualities as the elections draw near.
I have been a McCain supporter all along, but this forum has rejuvenated my excitement.
I hope many people had the chance to see it... it was an unequivocally decisive victory for McCain. Showing his true colors: red, white and blue!

For those interested, transcripts of the sessions are available here:
I thought the most interesting question asked was "Which Supreme Court Justice would you have not nominated"?
Obama: Clarence Thomas
McCain: Ruth Bader-Ginsburg, David Souter, Breyer, Stevens
