  •  Obama is highly predictable (in a good way) (12+ / 0-)

    I agree that every time he falters, he comes back with a vengeance. I think he sometimes needs an initial set-back to find his full mojo. I immediately think of the race speech, of course, which was a response to the Rev. Wright swiftboat attempts, another time he initially didn't come out swinging, waited, got fed up, and then showed his full-throated fury.

    I like it. It's measured and earnest. And yes, I am sure he'll win. The debate was very typical for him. I think he starts from a position of level-headed, measured rationale, and if that's the terrain, does well from that place, but if the terrain requires a bit of intensity, he has to find that emotion in himself, let it well up, let it come out. I think it's very authentic (part of why I like -- and trust -- the guy).
