Steyn on Where we are at
Mark Steyn has it right. This is what he says about the first half hour of the debate tonight:
Well, in this first 30 minutes or so, they're both singing the same song - lobbyists, special interests, greed on Wall St, populist boilerplate, etc - but Obama is the more mellifluous vocalist. All he has to do is sound competent and moderate, and so far he's succeeding. He looks like the kind of guy you'd cast in a big movie about Hollywood's first black president, and nothing he's saying is at odds with the looks.
It doesn't look that good for McCain tonight, and he needed a decent showing to stay in the fight because people blame him and the Republican party, wrongfully, but they blame him, and he needed to set himself apart, and he isn't cutting it.
