Presidential debates are fun to watch, especially when you have 2 charismatic personalities like John McCain and Barack Obama. View the entire debate below. Both Senators went toe to toe with questions posed from moderator Jim Lehrer of PBC concerning different issues represented throughout the evening. The 90 minute debate was supposed to be centered around foreign policy, but because of the Congressional 750 billion dollar bill President Bush is trying to get passed before the congress was supposed to goes on recess as of Friday, the debate began centered around the economy then moved on to foreign policy. Neither McCain or Obama had much to say regarding the money bailout, but did answer questions regarding the economy for the first 40 minutes of the debate.
It was stated by most commentators from CNN that John McCain had to through out a knockout punch to stay in the race. Most everyone commenting on the debate stated that John McCain did not through out the knockout punch and now he is in real danger of getting seriously behind in the polls. Most all commentators agree that it was Barack Obama who won the debate, but even if the polls would claim that both were even, that the outcome would favor Obama over McCain.
As expected, when it concerned foreign policy, the answers from McCain proved he is the experienced candidate. But at the same time, Barack Obama held his own concerning foreign policy. His knowledge concerning foreign policy was tested and anyone who doubted his knowledge and ability in this subject should now realize that Barack Obama is for real, and he has the ability to debate John McCain on any issue.
The next debate will be on October 2nd, with Sarah Palin and Joe Biden going toe to toe as the vice-presidential candidates of this election year.
On November 4th, either John McCain or Barack Obama will be elected as the next President of the United States, If you still haven't registered to vote, you have until October 4th, just 30 days before the election to get registered.
