After getting home from the Gunners batting practice, we watched the first McCain Obama Presidential Debate. I am not sure that I am qualified to judge who won or lost, but I am fascinated by the way the candidates performed when their opponent was speaking. McCain was making such a odd assortment of grimances and other facial expressions. Obama was also guilty of this, but to a lessor degree. Given the extensive use of split screens, it seems to me that the candidates would be better coached in this aspect of the debate. It would be interesting to go back and look at footage of Reagan to see how he "behaved" when he was not speaking during his presidential debates.
Interestingly, I made the same comments about Bush four years ago.
