Im watching it right now and I think both men are doing a good job and this is a very good debate so far even though I agree with mccain on most of the issues but also agree with obama on some of the issues. But I think mccain needs to win this debate since hes loosing to obama.

We're watching it now! I'm glad to see that McCain decided to handle all his responsibilities despite additional crisis coming to light in the last couple days. I think now, more than ever, we need to hear what these gentlemen have to say. I do appreciate that they are addressing the economy tonight! Definitely a much needed debate to help put things in perspective for the voters. I don't know that we'll make it through it's entirety. It's me and my 9 year old so at some point I may have to give in and put on something more "fun" for him, although, I do try to make him as politically aware and involved as possible for a 9 year old.

Yeah, I'm watching it, I wouldn't miss it. I have been waiting a long time for this. I'm also excited to watch the Palin/Biden debates and I really love watching Town Hall meetings.

I watched it. Obama came off well. As the news stories as of today suggest, he gained ground with moderates by at least being willing to consider the point of view of the other candidate.

I taped the debate and am watching it in segments as I have time to fit it in. I have such a strong interest in this election, I am able to really get into watching it this year. Some elections, I couldn't bring myself to watch the whole thing - just excerpts. I had the write up in the paper this morning and read that before I watched the debates, looking out for the particular topic questions that were mentioned in the articles.

No I didn't watch it or plan t watch it they will always go over the interesting finer points in the morning news. I am babysitting also so I couldn't watch it if I wanted.

While I'm sure the entertainment level would be astounding, no. I'm not watching it. I already know who I'm voting for, as do 97% of registered voters, so I'm just going to play some video games with my husband. I despise video games specifically and in general, and it's still preferable to watching two overpaid, undercaring political figureheads bash each other's false platforms. Here's hoping McCain smashes the living hell out of Obama, though. He does seem to be the more HONEST AND INTELLIGENT one of the two, not to mention his integrity and ideas of "change" that would be a POSITIVE effect RIGHT NOW, exactly when and where we need it (the gas pumps, schools, and grocery stores, just for examples). Plus, his FEMALE VP totally kicks @ss! GO, MS. PALIN! (Ersmommy, this next paragraph isn't directed at you, but I'm putting it here anyway. I seem to do this a lot to your discussions, but I'm not going to stop, either. I like p!ssing people off, but I'm sorry if you ever get offended. I like you! Just wanted you to know that I'm not bashing you, just the ones who aren't as "all that" as they would like to think.) For those with a smart-@ss comment, please shut up. You really DON'T want to attack me with your political "debate". I'll win, I promise. And I'll SERIOUSLY hurt your feelings, because I don't play fair. I use every nasty trick in the book to make your blood pressure go up, then I sign off, leaving you screaming at your monitor. HAHA! No one cares, so shut up before you even start.
