DEBATE HANGOVER: THE "WHAT?" FACTOR
Ol' Jimbo asked them both clearly whether they favored the $700B rescue package. Both took the opportunity to make swell list of stuff they liked and didn't like and nobody answered the question. At least Obama said "we're waiting for language".
Later, the house Repubs deftly made it moot. I think they might have gotten it right. One either believes in a free market or one doesn't. Surely woulda been fun to watch McCain and Obama blame each other for the bad parts of the bill in Senate Debate though.
