Although, I think that Barack Obama won the first presidential debate on Friday night I feel a major game enhancer (not game changer - because Obama is already winning!) has just taken place in the interview George Stephanapoulos had with John McCain.
In this interview, John McCain was grilled on his debate and campaign tactics as well has his political role in suspending his campaign with regard to the potential bailout Congress seems in the process of compromising on.
McSame showed the same distain for Stephanopoulos as he did for Obama on friday. His posture was very uneasy and I think that he was unable to clearly articulate his thoughts in a way that will add on to his defeat in the debates and further boost Obama's poll numbers.
He also showed an inability to defend Palin's statements echoing those of Obama's with regard to going into Afghanistan. McCain essentially said that what a candidate says while being interviewed should be taken with a grain of salt.
Ya see, since Monday is the first weekday since the debate not only will MSNBC, CNN and other news stations focus on the debate, but McCain's recent statements on 'This Week' about his recent questionable demeanor.
I thought this would be a good forum to update you all on my observations from 'This Week' and I will update you as soon as I am able to cite precise quotations from the interview and VIDEO. Hopefully this could be recommended or kept near the top of the diary list so it will be easily accessible for Kossacks.
But make no mistake, the McCain interview that just took place is not a game changer (because Obama is already doing well) but a game enhancer.
UPDATE #1: WE ARE RECOMMENDED. First time for me..........I will add a video as soon as one becomes available. If anyone finds one first please addit in comment and I will add to diary and give you many thanks.
UPDATE #2: CLIP: (THANKS NCDem Amy, Amsterdem and Matisyahu)
