Despite his lack of preparation, with possible leakage of his talking points to the other side, that allowed his opponent to choose whatever issue to emphasize or to avoid, leading to Obama losing his way in this complex argumentation, his genuine feelings of anger and self-restraint speaks well for his honesty and character.  You can trust Obama, it came across after all is said and done.  But you like more what Romney said.  So, who will you vote for?  The man you trust more, or the man who said the things you agree wtih more?  This seems to be the post-debate spin.

Yeah, i haven't seen it yet, might see it in a few hours.

Whoever wants to see it here's a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MDeMI-MeS0

I'm not American so i will not vote for anyone. In Greece i always have voted for syriza (radical left party). Anyway, i'd like for the U.S. to have a third party because as the time passes both of the American political parties have been allowed to slowly drift towards the right-wing, the democrats have become center-right wingers and the republicans ultra-right wingers. Also, in the U.S. there's no real democracy, it's more like a two-party oligarchy that largely works for the rich.  So, there's not much of a choice in my opinion, but if i had to choose between the two i'd vote for Obama.

I think Obama lost the debate.  Right from the start he didn't look very confident IMO.
