The Hound was expecting a breakthrough performance from Illinois' favorite son, Sen. Barack Obama on Friday night in the first of several presidential debates. Didn't happen, did it? The Hound didn't think Obama looked that sharp. Hey, he didn't know it wasn't debating Tom McClain, whoever he is.
As for John McCain, he knows the difference between strategy and tactics. His strategy is to win in just over a month. His tactics are making Obama look like he just left the sandbox. That didn't work so well,either.
So, what can we learn from Friday's faceoff? There's two presidential candidates who know their stuff. At least when it comes to foreign policy. Neither were too sharp when discussing the financial market meltdown. Guess that comes from being blindsided by fast-moving events of the day.
The Hound is waiting for the Palin vs. Biden bout. Talk about ultimate fighting. Which one will tap out? Any bets?
