Did you watch the presidential debate last night?

I saw the first half. What surprised me was how compelling Romney was and how dull the president seemed.

Honestly, if I was American, I don’t know what I’d do. My sympathies, generally, would skew towards Republicans. But they’re way too conservative on social issues, and on fiscal issues they talk a good game but end up being just as big government as Democrats. So I don’t know.

What I do know, though, is that Obama could be in trouble. Even Democrat commentators agree.

Ouch! When these guys say a Democrat lost, he lost.

My guess is Obama is still leading, but another performance like last night and that could change. Debates should mean much less than they do. I think they have more to do with a person’s ability to put on a show than how well they’d run a country. Still, when party lines are as rigidly drawn as they are in the U.S., the relatively small number of undecideds and independents can determine the outcome.

If you were undecided going into last night’s debate, which candidate did a better job selling himself?

Romney all the way.
