    If McCain did as well in the debates as he did at the dinner/roast last night, then he would have a 10 point lead in the polls.

    The McCain debacle reminds me of Bob Dole - neither should have been the candidate. It also speaks to the FACT that primaries are pure foolishness. Political parties should pick their candidates, not the voters. We got better candidates when that was the case. The parties vetted their candidates and selected the ones who most represented their views. Now it has become an election before an election in which facts, character and principles are subordinated to sound bites, photo ops and appearance - pure fluff!

    If there is sentiment for the voters to select a candidate, let their be a primary for Independents to challenge the candidates of the major parties.

    At least, this was one time McCain beat the other guy.

    I noticed the geezer; it appeared he'd had a radical humorectomy last week!

    Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau was the geezer. Running for re-election this year at age 89. Noticed he was removed from the view of the camera later in the show.
