I wonder if the debate says more about the underlying state of the country than the contenders - angry, short-tempered, frustrated, fed up.
I'd say Obama "won" narrowly. CNN lost. Romney didn't gain anything but didn't lose much either. But its mostly people talking at or past each other. Perhaps it's simply the nature of elections, and then deal-making begins again.
It feels as if it is going to be the election mechanics -get out the vote - which will decide this when the polls are so close.
