Blog reaction

Daily Kos – Did McCain’s constant trashing of Obama’s experience and judgement lower voter expectation, to the Democrat’s advantage?

RCP – Tom Bevan is confident that McCain won, but does it really matter?

TPM – Why didn’t McCain make eye contact with Obama? Was it embarrassment, contempt, anger or maybe fear?

Oliver Willis – It’s an easy decision really: the cool cucumber or the furious tomato.

Michael Tomasky/CiF – The actual debate is over. Now let’s see how the campaigns spin it.
