The first debate is history. Senator Barack Obama and Senator John McCain squared off on the issues of foreign policy with the first question on the federal bailout plan. Obama was able to remind the voting public of McCain ‘s earlier statements contending the nation’s economy is “fundamentally strong.” McCain elaborated on his work with world leaders on foreign policy issues since the Reagan era in efforts to increase his popularity with Reagan republicans. Issues of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars along with the Georgia Russian war were some of the topics that garnered a point counter point exchange. The debate was filled with interruptions after alleged mischaracterizations of their perspective positions. Disdain over the mischaracterizations was evident in the glances by the candidates. What did you think of the debate and who won? Or, was it a draw?
