Last week’s Obama-McCain debate has been huge in this swing. It was a toss-up substance-wise, say talking heads, and maybe they’re right, but the contrast in style and character could not have been sharper. Graceful and gracious Obama against crouching, condescending McCain. Again, not to be glib but appearances count in politics, and McCain comes off, when measured against Obama, as slightly deformed and slightly deranged. Unable to raise his arms, that phony smile, the bulge on his cheek. Not his fault, but appearances matter.

I said weeks ago Obama would win for three main reasons. Charisma. Charisma. And Charisma. It isn’t over by a long shot, and Obama will need this bulge to win a rigged electoral game, but I’d no longer be surprised to see Barack Obama as next president of the United States of America.
