Don't buy it

I didn't watch the debate - I didn't need to. I knew Romney would be the clear winner, because Obama had such a big lead. There needs to be a horse race or too many people would court third party or not vote.

Had Romney not had a good showing voter's hopes might have dashed.

If there are three debates the consensus will be that the second is by-and-large a draw, the third will be a pounding by the incumbent. If only two debates, Obama will easily reastablish his competance and his base will be reassured.

Its all about the horse race.
