McCain still standing, for now

In case you didn't see my update below, I gave Obama the win last night on a split card. McCain effectively used his inner rage to strengthen his standing with conservative white guys, but Obama's Buster Douglas-like jabbing skills kept Iron John from hurting him.

UPDATE: The meme is emerging today that Obama=Kennedy and McCain=Nixon, circa 1960. I am biased to agree with this view, but I do see genuine logic in it. Obama was confident and assertive; McCain was stand-offish and prone to regurgitating talking points. I'm sure the 1960 debate is up on YouTube; watch it and tell me what you think of this analysis
The bad news for John, however, is that his VP choice is going up against Joe Biden next week.
