McCain was unsportsmanlike in the debate, and don't think for a minute that doesn't matter.

There are plenty of undecided voters - many of them women - for whom character counts. Right or wrong, McCain's condescending behavior, smirking, refusal to look Obama in the eye when spoken to, and his obvious reluctance to shake hands at the beginning and end of the debate does not go unnoticed.

I really thought McCain was smarter than that and would have matched Obama's cool professionalism, but I guess McCain can't summon it.

The moderator asked them to engage; asked them to speak to each other and look at each other. Numerous times Jim Leherer asked McCain to look at Obama and address him personally and McCain refused. He did not do what Jim Leherer asked.

McCain also asked Obama several times about his $900,000,000 in earmarks and Obama seemed to not want to give a straight answer, why didn't the moderator instruct Obama to answer...it works two ways...Couldn't be that Jim Leherer is liberal is it?

McCain addressed Obama several times...

Here we go again. The racist remarks that many of you have made about Barack shows how patriotic you are. If this is what America will continue to strive on, I don't want any part of it. Remember Barack graduated from Harvard not too many minorites ( the inferior races) can say that about about the (superior race). The only superior being is God. In my field of work I have the pleasure of doing my job with utmost respect to man kind. However, when the generation of people who contributed in the hatred of others pass on, they will have to answer to their Superior. Who ever that might be. It could not be God, because he don't spue hatred. It sad to admit how race is playing a major role in this coming election, by educated people. I wonder where many of you have recieved your education because it shows you have not anything about diversity. Thank God I was raised by good people and experience culture of many races in NY.

Default true that

I totally agree with you. Other countries are already laughing at our poor race relations what else do we need? I guess another 4 years of Bush poor governing. It is so sad. They obviously think that the American people are not listening carefully. I am.

Really, you have a source of such "laughter"? Those EVIL slave traders should have never "souled" their bros IMHO.

My husband is European...almost every day he points out to me that in just about every other country a person's gender or ethnicity would not be the major factor whether or not to vote for them.
