    That is amusing, but this commonly-held assertion that McCain doesn't really want to debate Obama seems a little misguided. As I've stated before, McCain can handle direct questioning. His "closing statements" would be the area in which he gets muddled and sounds like some old guy rambling.

    Yes, based on personality, I don't think she deals well with conceptualizations and thinking on her feet about situations she's not immersed in.

    She comes across as an ESTJ type -- great within her area of practical knowledge and good at making things happen swiftly, but strategic thinking of new complex situations (something that is a great boon in today's world for a presidential figure) ... meh. She'll be either dismissive or overtly procrustean... or make terrible excuses.

    Get her outside her experience zone and she is so hosed.

    I agree. I worry more about the possibility of her becoming President than McCain. She seems less willing to consult others and more willing to stubbornly hold on to her beliefs. I think I remember another President who acted similarly and got us into a bit of trouble. . . hrm. . .

    Those are just my general impressions of her from what I have observed thus far. I could be wrong.

    I wonder if any other women are slightly embarrassed that she is currently the main political representative of our sex.

    I'm sure there are. I'm not particularly thrill with her, myself. I really hate the choices in this election.

    Apparently McCain has changed his mind and decided to attend the debate.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Smart move. McCain skipping this debate would have been a huge story, plus the townhall style meeting would have been an incredible opportunity for Obama.

    His mind was changed alright, as in he had no other alternative.

    I don't plan on voting for the guy, but I'm almost tempted to just to spite the irrational haters.

    I completely disagree. McCain excels at town hall meetings, and Obama excels at oratory.

    I was under the impression that today's debate wasn't/isn't going to be a town hall style meeting.
