Like most Americans, I’m more than content to read about the 2008 Presidential Election at this point, prior to the nominating conventions. I’m not glued to my television screen following it. Besides, I have plenty of Equestrian Olympic events, and Women’s Beach Volleyball, recorded on our satellite box to catch up on.
Consequently, I’ve seen nothing of the Saddleback Civil Forum on Presidency. But I can tell that John McCain surprisingly mopped the floor with the glib Mr. Obama, since the Obama Campaign’s media allies, NBC and NYT are now whining about McCain cheating.
Byron York confirms the McCain victory.
Warren â€” Pastor Rick, around here â€” asked big questions, about big subjects; he wasnâ€™t concerned about what appeared on the front page of that morningâ€™s Washington Post. And his simple, direct, big questions brought out something we donâ€™t usually see in a presidential face-off; in this forum, as opposed to a read-the-prompter speech, or even a debate focused on the issues of the moment, the candidates were forced to call on everything they had â€” the things they have done and learned throughout their lives. And the fact is, John McCain has lived a much bigger life than Barack Obama. Thatâ€™s not a slam at Obama; McCain has lived a much bigger life than most people. But it still made Obama look small in comparison. McCain was the clear winner of the night.
