You’d think by this age I’d have learned better than to expect anything in the least bit exciting - or even interesting - to happen at a debate, but I still kinda get an echo of a thrill.
Dollars to donuts this one plays out as yet another exchange of boring talking points that respond to neither the moderator nor the opponent. And at this stage in the game, I figure boring will do Obama just fine.
Will be mildly interesting, if we see/hear McCain/Palin voicing all kinds of charges in the upcoming couple of weeks that the somehow forgot to raise in the forum where the other side could directly respond. That’s another reason I’m predicting boring. I see McCain phoning this one in, and then start tossing out wilder and wilder accusations beginning tomorrow.
