It will become quite apparent when you start hearing and seeing these two men against each other (tonight provides a small glimpse) that Barack Obama is not only the best candidate we’ve seen in long time, but is also ready to be the next President of the United States. McCain is a dud. Obama soars.
Put McCain’s speech against Obama’s – and this was a wipe-out. Not a victory. A wipe-out. Rhetorically, they are simply not in the same league. And if the contrast tonight between McCain and Obama holds for the rest of the campaign, McCain is facing a defeat of historic proportions.
