    From a campaign standpoint, the presidential debates are an opportunity to "Move the Movable" voters. I'm not so sure McCain or Obama did anything to that effect last night. I don't really see either of them doing that in the next two debates either, only if they have a really big gaffe or look bad will it really effect those voters who are being fought over right now.

    Interestingly, in '92 it was the Vice Presidential debate that really was the final nail in the coffin for H Ross Perot. His Veep pick - Admiral Stockdale had a rough time. Here's a quick refresher...

    This guy was actually a highly decorated, highly educated, smart man, but he really fucked up on the debate and looked like a fool.

    We've all seen the Couric-Palin interviews. If she comes off as bad in the debate as she did in that interview, that could, in my opinion, be where the movable and undecided voters move.

    Any undecided voters out there? What u think?

    Interesting post Chitown. I might be considered a movable considering that I am not thrilled about or planning to vote for either major candidate. Nothing I have seen from either VP candidate has impressed me and they both have plenty of gaffe's. I'm moving to a third party this time.

    The thing is...

    Our expectations are now so low about Palin
    Is that if she doesn't pull a beauty queen meltdown
    she be seen as pulling it off
