The Third Presidential Debate

Excepting Senator McCain's long-awaited retort: "I'm not President Bush. If you wanted to run against George Bush, you should have run four years ago," the event seemed fairly stale. At least, that's the way it seemed as I listened to it over the wireless. Having gone the all audio, no video route, I didn't catch John McCain's facial mannerisms until I switched on CNN following the debate; according to their pundits, McCain's all-too-obvious exasperation probably won't serve him well with the public.

It's doubtful that this final (thank G*d) debate will turn the race all kinds of topsy turvy, and it will be Monday or so before we really begin to see if the debate effectively helped either candidate. Until then, things will carry on as they are.
