I still haven’t watched the debate but I was reading on some of the coverage afterwards. Lots of post-debate polls (for what they’re worth) are favoring Obama. Even though all the polling has put Obama ahead I’m still not holding my breath almost as if any cockiness in my thinking could affect it.

I’d always wondered just how much these debates affect opinion then I saw this clip and realized that really not that much for a lot of people. It just pains me to see stuff like this because it seems like reason is at odds with itself. Then I just have to admit that some people are just so convinced of their beliefs. Though honestly I’m sure there’re also a lot of people who on the outside just won’t admit they don’t want him because he’s black. Bleah, didn’t mean to get so serious, but I think I’ll be on edge until the votes are tallied up.
