    People are treating the debate as if it were a boxing match, with a winner and a loser and that's that.

    They should be treating the debate as a way to build votes for the man they support and drain away votes from the man they oppose.  

    Will many people vote for Romney based on his strong debate performance?   I don't think so; there are so few undecided American voters left, and their opinion isn't going to be changed by a debate.

    Still, the American tendency to view the debates as serious and important in themselves is amusing, if a trifle strange and perhaps naive.
