    personal confrontation.

    His campaign has been much tougher than his politics, probably because a campaign does not require personal confrontation.

    But I tend to think we saw more of the real Obama tonite than many people like.

    The Obama campaign is going to have to take on  Romney/Ryan before and after debates.   I'm not sure Obama is capable of it in debates.

        ...I think the race is pretty much over...already. That being said, and stating the obvious: It isn't over 'til Election Day. And, the media WILL (they certainly are, already) make more out of this than it rightfully deserves. So, from a purely p.r. standpoint, tonight's events weren't helpful. And, the race COULD end up being considerably closer come Election Day than it is now. We shall see.
