Last nights debate answered vital questions about Obama's lapel jewlery.

"By so badly botching arguably the most critical debate of such an important election, in a time of both war and economic misery, you disgraced the American voters, and in fact even disgraced democracy itself."

- Will Bunch, Philadelphia Daily News

Yeah, it kinda sucked. I think the questions about why Obama doesn't wear a flag pin is best. Like he hasn't answered that a million times. After 45 minutes, they finally started talking about real issues. The two hosts, Charles Gibson and George Stephanopoulos (formerly in the Clinton Administration... can't we call foul on that?) seemed to take special glee in trying to trip up Obama and Clinton. They may chalk it up to good journalism, but it came off more like them grandstanding.

It's crap like this makes most sane people never think of running for public office.

That said, Clinton seemed more in control. Obama seemed tired. A

On the bright side, this was watched by an unprecedented 10.7 million people. Not too shabby.
