    on Obama rallied the crazies. They went from hating Romney to loving him, overnight, for throwing that metaphorical punch at Obama's face.

    But that was it. He rallied the base, while ours cringed. Biden stopped the panic on the left, and Obama knocked Romney out the next two.

    I still think we win bigger if Obama had won that first debate -- the wingers would've remain depressed and disengaged, and I'm sure there were (true) independents who would've stuck with Obama. But oh well.

      Obama had enough ammunition to put Romney away.  

      However, Obama did do the right thing in not bringing up Romney's 47%.  That would have given Romney a national audience to explain it away and I have no doubt in my mind Romney was waiting for it.  Ultimately, Romney's explanation was just another press release no one paid attention  to.  

      Regardless, Obama won a 2nd term and the fight goes on.
