I tend to think that, had this been a traditional debate, the moderator would have felt compelled to bring up both Bill Ayers and the Keating Five.  That might well have made a dramatic difference in how tonight's debate played out. 

I still think McCain should have brought up Ayers, but a lot of smart people disagree...

As such, generally, I think this ended up being all too similar to the first debate.  I think McCain did well, but so did Obama.  But because McCain needed to gain some momentum tonight -- unless I'm missing something -- I don't think he accomplished that goal tonight...
