From a military captain:

K-Lo-

I’ve had it.  Look at this-2 points behind with ZOGBY-ZOGBY!  This thing is far from over.  OK so McCain is not Ronald Reagan-Got it!  However he’s put in 2 far superior performances than our current president ever did.  A couple of non-politicos in my office mentioned two things-1) they both did well (believe it or not a really high standard for McCain to achieve given that the best the MSM will ever grade the debate is a tie) and 2) That buying of houses thing might work. 

My wife-who still doesn’t know who she’s voting for said the following last night 1) McCain is energetic and 2) Obama’s comment’s on Pakistan proves “he doesn’t have a clue as to what to do.”

You watch MSNBC-their reaction afterwards was all on McCain with nary a word about Obama-good sign me-thinks.

He’s got to pander to the middle-he’s got to.  That’s the way it works.  You hardly ever get zingers out of these (name any from Bush / Kerry).  The polls are always pushing Democrats this cycle-8 point leads in turnout-good luck.  Even Nixon couldn’t get them there.

Thanks for the vent!

I  worked in the criminal-justice system for a quarter century. It is run, day-to-day, by the crème de la crème of graduates from America’s top law schools.
