    This sentence from the piece made me think of the Romney "win" in debate #1:

    "The High SDO types who run authoritarian groups have managed to make their characteristics into what most people think of as the model for our leaders."

    He was so "strong", so assertive, he really put Obama in his place.

    On a side note, I heard Lawrence O'Donnell being interviewed yesterday, and reflecting on the un-reality of the Presidential debates. Presidents are not required to memorize anything - they have staff. The President is virtually never alone, and certainly does not make important decisions alone. That part of the job interview bears to relation to skills actually needed by a President.
