Look ‘em in the eye

In terms of clearness, honesty and civility, Obama won the first debate—hands down.

I want a president who can look the opposition in the eye, as Obama did. I want a president with courage and judgment (Obama), not a spineless flip-flopper who’d sell out the integrity of his campaign for a vote (McCain).

And what I don’t want is a president who exploits the death of U.S. soldiers to distract voters from asking for real answers. Shameful!

McCain came off as a lying, angry old man. He lost on his own ground.
