Krusty Konservative: Phase 2: The debates

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

I always break down the general elections for presidential candidates
into three phases, the conventions, the debates, and the all out blitz
for the final weeks of the campaign. John McCain somehow found a way
to win the convention phase despite the 80,000 people who filled a
football stadium to see Obama's convention speech. The McCain campaign
ripped the headline away from Obama by selecting Sarah Palin as his VP
selection, and used a hurricane shortened convention to unite a
Republican Party against Obama. Going into the general election I
would have said that the only phase that McCain could win is the
debate phase. Obama has shown that he can give a great speech with the
aide of a teleprompter, but when left to answer questions on the spot
he suddenly sounds more like President Bush.
