It has to be each time McCain utters the phrase: "My Friends"

Little activity here tonight, the first questions went well for both parties, McCain more to the point but less convincing than Obama.

Whatever happens I'm sure the MSM will make it sound a lot more drama-tastic than reality. The day after is probably more exciting than the actual debate, seeing the news anchors and networks rip into each other over a quote here and a flag pin there.

Obama's campaign has been fairly consistent, I doubt he will bring anything new to the table if you've been following along the entire time like some of us have. He'll likely criticize McCain's economic plans and stances on this war as well as future wars. He'll outline Palin's overall lack of knowledge when it comes to the issues and McCain's disconnect from the average American, etc, etc.

McCain is sort of a wild card, right now he's playing catchup so he has to say something bold to get himself noticed by people still sitting on the fence. What will decide it for some will be whether his bold move turns out to be something positive about his own platform or if it comes in the form of more ad hominem attacks on Obama. He could score big and come out ahead or risk being labeled by the media if he keeps up the negative momentum.

Obama just need to not fall into McCain's game or he'll lose the high ground he has right now with the media after being targeted by all the hate at McCain's rally.

Obama refuses to give clear answers to things like "Who would you appoint" he needs to give solid answers, t's not the nomination anymore, it's the whole shebang

Sen. McCain said: "Sen. Obama and his cronies".... wow. I guess the gloves are off!

Agreed, he took his time addressing the 1st question, did avoid the point on who he would appoint. And his is certainly more on the attack mode than McCain. For the moment anyway, we'll see if McCain stays cool or reacts, to Obama's subtle & not so subtle attacks.

But yeah - just answer the bloody question!

I think he will spend half his time bad mouthing Obama. But both Obama and Mc Cain didn't give clear answers on the Treasury Sec.

They both lost my vote a long time ago. I am listening to them but I have no faith in either one of them. They are just words strung together trying to form sentences in an effort to make people vote for them. I am voting for neither of them. It reminds me of watching puppets on a string. Entertaining, but no substance.

I hate to tell johnny boy this but america has the best workers? try japan and germany. And he has cronies and is bought and paid for too. Neither of these people have their finger on the pulse, if they can't convince me by the end of the night i'm going independant.

Wow, it seems all this guy (obama) knows how to do is link Bush to McCain.

So far things are pretty interesting, especially when McCain spoke to Obama directly in reference to writing a letter with other senators about the problem.

So far all Obama has done is repeat what McCain has said while watering it down.

So far its just finger pointing from the both of them. Please just get to the issues and not the blame game.

Yep - the ties to the ;last 8 years seems to be the tactic for Obama.

And McCain is now coming out fighting, this could get very interesting.....

Ok, mccain just bashed obama for asking for money for the projector for the planetarium in chicago. If i remember correctly, that is not only a research planetarium, but is also big for education. I know, they took us there in school when i grew up there. Asking for money for something for education is a good thing yes?

I love the way the are screaming about stopping pork barrel spending. They both voted for this bailout package that was filled with so much pork we will all be eating bacon for a century. How is that stopping pork?

This is like doing a dogpaddle through a sewage pipe. No clear cut answers, just ambiguities.

If that's a town hall meeting due to the size of it, sigh, that is pathetic.

This is neither a debate nor a town hall meeting. It's a dog and pony show with them both trying to win best in show. Neither are answering the question.

I'm not liking this at all either...is like both get ask a question and they don't even care to address the question at hand and go to more attacks.

"if the american people decide they want something done they get it done"

No he didn't just go there. Didn't the American People say no to the bailout?
