I wanted to live-blog the debate, but my wireless router wasn't working properly. I changed the DNS addresses and got back online but surfing molasses. Currently mobile blogging. I don't know that I would have added anything useful to the mass of punditry out there, so just as well. I'll link to an overview soon as I can.
I was trying to gauge if one of the candidates was dominant over the other, but not that much stood out. There's some talk that McCain made NO eye contact with Obama, indicating repressed anger and/or primate submission. I've read complaints about Obama offering too much praise to earlier McCain decisions or stances, and this might prove useful to future McCain ads, but for the unfiltered debates it seemed a dominance display. Patting McCain on the head while putting him in his place. I didn't feel Obama held back on criticizing the other Senator. If this was McCain's area of expertise, then young sizzle owned the old coot.
