It was the worst debate that I have ever seen. The first 45 minutes was nothing but tabloid distraction issues like, "Why don't you wear a flag pin?" addressed to Obama. It was a debate that should have been put on by the tabloid t.v. program here in America, "Entertainment Tonight."
There was hardly any mention of the issues that people really care about and want to hear discussed. It was a disgrace to the National Constitution Center where it was held. As far as I could tell it looked like a hit job on Obama with both moderators ganging up on him with tired old sensational issues that have been addressed already time and time again. It was like he was sitting in a CIA interrogation at Guantanamo Bay!!
And clearly Hillary loved it and pounced on Barack like that cowardly kid who jumps into a fight to kick the other person while their down. I think that she is over-playing her hand with this pit-bull routine. The funny thing is that all that piling on didn't work, Obama continued to address the issues point by point with dignity and poise. He rose above the muck and talked straight to the American people saying again and again that the American people deserve to talk about the real issues.
Once more his tone was positive and showed that yet again how calm that he is under pressure which is a key quality to have as Commander-in-Chief. Hillary doesn't have that and like John McCain can lose her temper and patience really quick. I hate to imagine how arrogantly McCain and Clinton would treat foreign leaders. Haven't we had enough of the patronizing, flippant attitude that Bush has had with foreign leaders these past 8 years? We need a leader who knows how to comport him/herself with grace and respect for the American people and toward the rest of the world back in the top spot. Clearly that person is Barack Obama.
In other news, another Pennsylvanian newspaper, The Philadelphia News has endorsed Barack Obama.
