    You are right that debates don't turn a loser into a winner. But they probably have minor effects that could make the difference in a really close swing state like CO perhaps.

      Debates and election are defined by moments. Obama not only winning the debate, but also having Romney fall flat on his face at key moments on foreign policy and with women, is a big deal. Both were played on the UK evening news. Sky News, immediately after the debate had ended, called the Libya segment a disaster for Romney.

      I'm glad you mentioned Colorado. The most significant snap poll from last night was Obama winning by 22 points among CO independents.

        You know, I ate some porridge for breakfast today. Americans call it oatmeal but I still call it porridge. It was the first thing I knew how to make as a kid.
