Debate Items

The debate........#1

Well, depending upon which party rep you visit with McCain or Obama won......

Drudge has a poll going on who won: McCain 67% - Obama 30%
Instapundit also has a poll: McCain 71% - Obama 10%
(The Insty Poll has a third option: "I was resting my eyes!" which got 19%)

In The New York Post Charles Hurt found a really striking comparison between the attitudes of Obama and McCain.....

"One of last night's most telling moments came when McCain revealed a wristband that had belonged to a soldier killed in Iraq given to him by the soldier's mother. Do everything in your power, the mother told McCain, to make sure "my son's death was not in vain."

"I've got a bracelet, too," Obama said - given to him by the mother of a dead soldier who asked Obama to "make sure that another mother's not going through what I'm going through."

Here lies the difference between these two men:

Obama will accept defeat if continuing on hurts too much. For McCain, any mission where defeat is an option is a mission not worth fighting in the first place."

How true.
