McCain can drop a ton of names and that's cool. He is knowledgable about other countries and military strategy - which makes him a great candidate - for a general. Presidency? Not quite.. consider this: "I looked into Mr. Putin's eyes and I saw three letters: K, G and B". That is just incredibly irresponsible. And the attitude of not talking to people because that would somehow validate and justify them belongs to kindergarden - and it's so W's first term!

OK so Obama is officially my candidate. Issues aside (which I also think Obama dominated on on the domestic side and was all least tied on the foreign front), here's why: (1) throughout the debate McCain was so incredibly condescending to Obama that I can't seriously envision him facing a foreign leader he doesn't like.. he's seemingly physically incapable of diplomacy; (2) the entire debate he didn't look at Obama once, whereas Obama addressed him directly and looked at him throughout the debate.. once again McCain either has a physical impediment or he's so arrogant.. either one makes it unfit, in my opinion; (3) McCain's vision and knowledge of the world is incredibly narrow (albeit deep in the 2 areas he seems to want to always talk about - war and earmarks).
