Early Polling Suggests That Obama Won the Debate.

I think it was tight; but the very fact that Obama held his own, on what was supposed to McCain's strongest subject, will have impressed people.

After all, McCain has been running ads for months now claiming that Obama is not ready to lead; indeed, he kept hinting at that very fact all night. But the truth is that anyone watching could see that Obama was completely on top of his brief when it came to foreign affairs.

McCain may very well have helped Obama with all his nonsensical "celebrity" adverts, because he perhaps lowered people's expectations of what Obama was capable of.

And it's interesting that, on the points where McCain was at his most forceful - like discussing Kissinger's statements regarding Iran - he was actually spouting nonsense.
