The Corner


Michael, I don’t agree. I think Obama came off better than expected but McCain is the guy who knows the world and has the battle scars. And you cannot reasonably make the case that he is a poster child for anything you might not like about Republicans when he has been at odds with so many in his own party for so long. He gave us a sense tonight about what I do love about him — his military service, appreciation of service, and knowledge of it. We need that in the White House — especially at a time of war. And while military service should not be a prerequisite for the presidency, it’s good to see there now and again. Obama’s an impressive guy to have come this far. But do you look at them both tonight and think, “yeah, I want that guy to pick up the 3 A.M. phone call”? Not unless Joe Biden is sleeping next to him.
