NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE
Did McCain give voters who are undecided or leaning to Obama any reason to vote for McCain?
Did McCain give his supporters any cause to be enthusiastic about him?
Did McCain open up any lines of attack that he can develop in the remaining weeks?
Did McCain give anyone any desire to watch next week’s debate?
The answer to all these questions, I think, is clearly no. So McCain’s performance was a dismal failure.
