They Both Won
For those who wanted to actually listen, McCain won. For those who were already decided, their candidate won.
Yes, I know I am partisan, but I would suggest that Obama came off better due to presentation and appearance (like JFK v. Nixon) in the first revamped half-hour. That may have carried over to the rest of the "debate." BUT, if those folks tried to watch the whole thing with an open EAR, and, if , national security was the major long-term issue, then McCain won hands down.
Unfortunately, most people under the age of 40 probably did not understand nor grasp McCain's references to the past.
History may be doomed to repeat itself. I hope that we are not the next Roman Republic about to die.
