final thoughts on the debate

It's mostly a draw, but that actually works in Senator Obama's favor, because this was supposed to be the debate that Senator McCain was strongest on: foreign policy. Senator Obama actually sounded knowledgeable and intelligent and nuanced on the subject (despite Senator McCain constantly saying that he didn't understand). Senator McCain definitely salvaged a good amount of his credibility tonight, which is good for him, as a metric ton of that cred was flushed down the toilet the last two weeks.

I think the only minds that might be changed by this are people who thought of Senator Obama as inexperienced and naïve, and he proved pretty conclusively that he isn't. But even there, I suspect that mostly this debate didn't change anybody's mind.
