Case Closed

There may be external events that can change the course of this campaign, but whatever those are, they are now outside the control of John McCain. Obama was eloquent and appeared knowledgeable and thoughtful on many issues. Much like his campaign, John McCain couldn't decide whether to attack, or whether to stress his record.

This was, by far, the best performance by Obama (and/or the worst by John McCain).

The fact that they were debating who was more negative was a loss for McCain. The fact that McCain left the Ayers issue of the table, even after Obama was begging him to raise it, until the very end of the question was a loss. Just having to defend Gov. Sarah was a loss.

Still over two weeks left, but after tonight I don't think that there is anything that the McCain campaign can do to beat Obama, he needs outside help.
