Presidential Debates - Round 1

Here is [Barack Obama's] campaign manager David Plouffe's reaction to the first presidential debate between Barack Obama and John McCain:

This was a clear victory for Barack Obama on John McCain’s home turf. Senator McCain offered nothing but more of the same failed Bush policies, and Barack Obama made a forceful case for change in our economy and our foreign policy. While Senator McCain wants to keep giving huge tax cuts to corporations and said nothing about the challenges Americans are facing in their daily lives, Barack Obama will be a fierce advocate for tax cuts for the middle class, affordable health care, and a new energy economy that creates millions of jobs. While foreign policy was supposed to be John McCain’s top issue, Barack Obama commanded that part of the debate with a clear call to responsibly end a misguided war in Iraq so that we can finish the fight against al Qaeda in Afghanistan. John McCain needed a game-changer tonight, and by any measure he didn’t get it,”
said Obama-Biden campaign manager David Plouffe.

This Thursday night will be Biden vs. Palin for the Vice Presidential debates. That should be VERY entertaining.
