McAttacks, Obama Coolly Wins Debate
For its August 2008 issue Ebony Magazine put together a list of the 25 coolest brothers of all time. To no ones surprise, Sen Barack Obama made that list.
That cool served him well in this third presidential debate at Hofstra University. McCain had promised his supporters he was going to 'whip his you know what' and came out swinging.
But in the face of unrelenting attacks on him from John McCain in this debate, Obama was so cool that ice probably would have frozen to his forehead while smoothly countering the angry McAttacks. McCain either needed a overwhelming victory or a major gaffe from Obama and got neither.
Take that James T. Harris.
With 19 days to go it isn't looking good for Team McPalin. They are getting outgunned in the money raising game. They're being forced to defend traditional reliable GOP turf or fight tooth and nail for it. Obama's also blanketing the radio and TV airwaves in these various battleground states with ads and has plenty of cash to buy more.
Obama also has as an ace in the hole in terms of the 30 minutes of TV time he bought on CBS and NBC on October 29. If that date rings a bell, it's the anniversary of the 1929 stock market crash that triggered the Great Depression.
But 19 days is an eternity in politics. Anything can happen, but with the debates out of the way and Obama winning all three, it's looking better and better that he may have a new address after January 20.
