WINNER: Obama Won, But McCain Had His Best Debate
This is iriegal's scorecard:
STRATEGY: Obama: A McCain: A
STYLE: Obama: A McCain: A-
ACCURACY: Obama: B McCain: C
During the debate, McCain put Obama on the defensive, raised questions about Obama's ties to former 1960s radical William Ayers, and spoke directly to Ohio voter Joe Wurzelbacher, a plumber, who had pressed Obama on his tax plan. (wait why after the debate noone could get a hold of Joe "Plumber" Wurzelbacher?)
The fact that McCain was able to make Wurzelbacher a character in this debate is why this was his best debate.
McCain sure tried to distance himself from Bush during the debate. He got a little "testy" because Obama keeps mentioning the last "4 years."

This is the Joe The Plumber encounter.
