    Senator Obama Live on Sunday states, "As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides, Obama said. 'There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all. It should be swapped for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing.' If that were our anthem, then I might salute it."We sh ould consider to reinvent our National Anthem as well as to redesign our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. My wife disrespects the Flag for many personal reasons. Together she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past, many years ago. She has her views and I have mine".

    Is Joe the Plummer looking at the bigger picture? Or is he so snowballed at what the Republican party thinks that just "now" we are in an ecominic depression? Is Joe the Plummer financially sound to enter into a new company or is Joe looking for a bail out like everyone else? By the way....McSane...calm down....Your blood pressure is up...it shows in your face color!!!

    I agree, very engaging and MCain is doing all he can...however I don't htink it is enough since Obama has an answer for every attack.

    Does McCain intend to talk down to us like he's talking down to Obama?

    I know the media will say Obama won, but the best line and I am glad mccain said it cause I was getting tired of it, If you wanted to run against bush you should have run 4 years ago.

    Candy, I agree. I like it!!! So far, I have to give McCain the edge. He had to come out swinging to stay somewhat close in the polls.

    McCain looks very angry....not holding his temper very well

    Yes this is a better debate, but desperation prompts that type of activity and McCain is desperate.

    And finally whose game is benefiting Americans now ?

  24. No Hillary = No Obama

    Remember: Obama is a trained lawyer. He knows how to talk and argue. He's used to it, that's his context and forte. McCain is not a trained lawyer and has not been trained in argument. McCain – what you see is what you get. He can throw a punch; Obama throws words.
