Good article. My impression of the last debate mirrored yours and I wasn't surprised that the CBS and CNN snap polls had Obama winning the debate. I'm not so sure since Obama seemed like he was the contender versus being the president. I actually watch MSNBC on occasion and switched there right after the debate. Chris Matthews had that tingle going down his leg again, he was totally giddy. I'm not sure why since Obama's agenda for a second term has come down to Bayonets, Big Bird, Binders, Birth Control, and bi-Sexual marriage?
