Does all the publicity surrounding friday's national security debate help or hurt Senator Obama?
it helps because more people are going to be watching the Mohamed Ali treatment of John Mccain.
Obama's only strong point will be on Pakistan.
Other than that
McCain will get him on his flip flopping over Iraq...the surge...his response to Russian aggression, and Iran.
McCain will take the debate.
It's funny because Sonny Liston tried dirty tactics in their fight too.
However, I think like Ali that Obama will rise above in the end.
In looking at how people voted, I'm thinking that perhaps it does nothing to entrenched voters... but nothing's going to change those votes anyway.
And I'm not sure if the undecideds really understand it or care.
I think your right. But it's going to be interesting. The Reagan/Carter 1980 debate had the highest viewership of any Presidential Debate with 80 million. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see that record not just broken, but shattered on friday.
I agree. It's going to be shattered on Friday....and then again when Biden and Palin debate. You know, though, I think that's a good thing. One of my favorite political types ever used to tell me that politics are a full contact team sport. I think it's only fair that they should be a spectator sport, too.
141 million people watched the Super Bowl. 80 million should be easy, but it IS on a Friday. So, we'll see.
Obama was right about Iraq before we invaded. I think you are underestimating or ignoring how powerful that is going to play in the foreign policy debate.
