I just watched CBS’s 60 Minutes show that profiled both McCain and Obama for the entire hour.
If there was any doubt in my mind who is going to do well in the debates (and there has been no doubt), this show set my mind to ease. (Yes, I am a big Obama fan and have been from Day One of his campaign.)
I think Obama came across brilliantly…he stuck to the issues, didn’t get baited into trivial subjects and handled his questions very well.
How McCain was able to seriously say he felt Palin was absolutely qualified to be President of the United States with a straight face is Oscar worthy. He danced around the question why she has not given interviews and he was quick to change the subject and slam Obama whenever he got the chance.
And finally, the whole “Obama is going to raise all of your taxes” bullshit was harped on again by McCain, but clearly answered by Obama.
So yes, this Obama supporter was quite happy to watch the show. I think it bodes well for the upcoming debates and also happy to see Democrat issues like war, the economy and health insurance take the front burner again over those Republican hot button issues like Paris Hilton and putting lipstick on pigs.
