Politics aside .... What I saw in the debate last night comes down to basics for me.... I saw... A President, and a professional politician that wants to be one. I saw... Two men one human with flaws for all to see, the other with flaws in disguise, hidden and almost automated. I saw... A leader, with deep character, telling the Country what he would continue to do, despite what the world thinks, in the interest of his Country. And a politician telling us we need the worlds approval before the interests of our Country matter. I saw... One fatigued man, the result of 4 long and difficult years of leading a nation back from a national tragedy, toward normalcy, and a secure future, and vowing to continue the job. The other claiming the first is wrong..and there's some other way that's better for us. He never told me what that other way was, really. Well, except for begging the world for permission part. (Not something I ever want to see). So in the end for me..it doesn't come down to the best dressed, the most articulate or the most polished. It comes down to simple human character and inner strength in the face of adversity. Someone who truly cares about the Country come hell or high water. That, I think, IS the heart an soul of America. That's what I saw last night.
