LAKE FOREST, California (CNN) - Huge applause when John McCain answers the question Barack Obama wouldn't: when does a baby get human rights? McCain is clear: from the moment of conception.
McCain hints at approval for civil unions - but doesn't go that far, just says his opposition to same-sex marriage doesn't mean people couldn't "enter into agreements." Obama flat-out supported the idea.
McCain agrees with Obama that evil exists in the world. But these two men are so different - Obama is lyrical. McCain is staccato.
How do you defeat evil...only GOD can do that because he is the one who creates it.
Can I ask who Candy Crowley is?
She seems slavish in her heaping of praise upon McCain vs. a critically independent view.
I did not like this at all. The Paster stated from the start, "don't use your Stomp Speech," and McCain did it any way. Why did he just say, I* messed up, I cheated on my 1st wife!!!" The way I see it, McCain just stated what the audiance wanted to hear, just to get applause from the growd. This was another Media Blunder!!! I'm still hanging with Obama!
It was a question that only God has the right to answer.
what are you kidding me? mccain was reading his stump speech all night, to a pro-republican audience.
the only way mccain could have messed things up is if he fell off the stage.
I'm a Vet, and for McCain to use his time being a POW as a Political issue is appauling, he makes me sick. I have a family member that was a POW. He wouldn't dare use it to get "political points!"
Shame on you McCain!!
And I was half expecting McCain to break into an Arnold Swarchenegger impression: "Defeat evil, den get to da choppa!"
Really, how is it that such a "pro-life" audience will base it's desicion on abortions and turn the other cheek to warmongering?
LOL good try. Very convincing
The question wasn't padded! That's like saying is a Big Mac Healthy....NO... Oh the question was padded!!! Give me a break.
Obama was horrid tonight. To many teleprompters when preaching at rallies. I be Axlerod was cringing.
I had the very strong impression that Obama spoke from the hart with answers as honest and logical as possible, while McCain's answers seemed learned and pre-programmed, as if they were not from his personal opinion but just what this specific audience wanted to hear.
I'm not McCain's friend. What a phony.
Why is it that everything he answered had to be about war?
That is the kind of the president I want, someone who takes a stand on what he believes in and can tell you like it is! Go McCain!
No one flips their support because of a "forum". You are either dumb as a rocks or a Republican troll. Go back to the crypt that houses the RNC...
Candy, how do you define rich? Can you tell us who dodged that question? And whiel at it, why not mention the many questions McCain dodged? I hate unbalanced news reporting.
Very good John, you are correct, honest, and reliable enough to run our country......give Obama a boot in the rear-end....
Obama dodged the question because he said that while he wants to make abortions rarer, he thinks that woman should have the right to have one?
So everything has to be black and white, otherwise you're "dodging"?
Can someone not voting MCCain write an article. Obama did much better than MCcain, he left room to work with both sides and he wasn't bull headed like bush and mccain are.
HAHAHA!!!! So funny to see the Obamabots whine like the PUMAS. McCain won, Obama lost-end of story. Now on to the conventions!
Obama did not dodge this question! He answered it fairly and honestly as he saw it. For Crowley to suggest he dodged the question reflects Crowley's bias to the candidates. The pundits like Crowley need to keep their opinions out of the discussion and report only on the facts. To do otherwise is definitely to be biased
Opinons are not welcome and responsible in this situation. The facts only should be reported and the voters left to decide for themselves who answered what.
Ms. Crowley, you are out of line here and have over stepped your journalistic responsiblity!
I think when all the campaigning is over, real americans interested in real change for this country will see that Obama is the right man for the job. McCain's time has come and gone, the days of the career politician is coming to and end
I think John McCain had an ear piece that allowed him to hear Obama's interview
McCain gave the talking points of the right–'life begins at conception' –'no legislation from the bench'- he did not try to explain any of these concepts!
McCain is supposed to be business as usual, but he is actually answering questions. Obama who is supposed to represent change, is answering questions like politicians always have, and most likely always will...
