Bill Maher commented that McCains strategy for the debate would be to claim his wallet had been stolen after the handshake.

Obama could then reasonably claim that his--and almost everybody else's--wallet had been stolen by the financial policies for which McCain was an insider.

He did really well with the "Senator Obama doesn't understand" line.

The more McCain/Palin try to play to white voters' racism with a subtext of "He's dangerous because he's black!" "He's angry because he's black!" "He's dishonest because he's black!" the more the contrast between that portrayal and Obama's public persona - calm, reassuring, positive, honest - becomes clear. I think it's too bad he *can't* respond angrily to the lies about him, but it's good that he's so self-disciplined that he manages to stay even-tempered under duress.
