    I thought both candidates were impressive.

    McCain reminded me of Reagan. Very good at telling stories that connect to people on a viseral level, but are totally bogus.

    Obama as always had a good grasp of the issues.

    Mac was stiff, shallow and his answers were rehearsed and required no thought.
    Obama was introspective...

    Yes, he does.

    Reagan used to have these press conferences where he would tell 10 stories, and when the press checked them they were all untrue, but people bought into the myth.

    Manipulating the body politic is what politicians do. McCain will be a strong opponent. He may even win.
