    they wanted a screaming match. They wanted lots of hand waving, and telling people to shut up, and cutting of mics.

    They wanted a scripted TV show. Romney gave them what they wanted.

    Obama was Obama - calm, measured, respectful. He wasn't going to be the straight man for Romney's 'zingers'.

    It's very hard to debate somebody who won't hold a position for more than 5 minutes. It's like trying to fight somebody who won't even stay in the ring.

    After while you just wait for them to get tired from all that running - and then you pop them one.
