Contrary to expectations John McCain did not take of the gloves and deliver any sort of damaging blow to Obama. In fact he put the kid gloves on and allowed the debate to devolve into a back and forth of talking points that we’ve all heard time and again. I could not bear to stay for the Fox team analysis, I’m sure it’s all negative and rightly so. True the questions were controlled and Brokaw added his own spin to th mix of questions and rejoinders. Bottom line, I think given the constraints of the event McCain could not have effectively attacked Obama. That’s why I believe it’s up to Palin now or it’s all over.
