The Winner

September 27, 2008

Again, it was Jim Lehrer.  I am astonished how little attention has been given to his splendid performance.  He was a judicious moderator, unobtrusive yet effective in steering the discussion.  Most astonishing of all, we watched an actual debate, which is to say that on a series of topics two men briefly stated their positions and then engaged each other at length.  That the candidates agreed to this format and stuck to it is a credit to both.

That being said, neither candidate is a particularly good debater.
