Schneider: Iraq the right model?

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (CNN) - I'm not sure that McCain's presenting of Iraq as a model for Afganistan will be resonate with voters.

    I totally agree. Watch the Ohio voter poll. They also agree.

    Even though the town meeting format is reputed to be better for John McCain – I believe that in this debate tonight Barack Obama connected with the crowd on a much more emotive level than John McCain did. So the verdict is – Senator Obama won! And I agree we cannot compare Afghanistan with Iraq – it's like comparing apples and oranges.

    No, McCain is only resonating with republicans and people who vote only along party lines. It is clear that no matter how much the fact checker reveal he is making false statements, he is still repeating them.

    Wow! McCain made a great connection with the Chief. Obama fluttered on the Russia question.

    There is something pathetic about an old man shuffling around on stage, sucking up to the audience members.
