CBS Poll: Uncommitted Voters Say Obama Won Debate  —  UPDATED CBS News and Knowledge Networks have, once again, conducted a nationally representative poll of uncommitted voters to get their immediate reaction to tonight's presidential debate.  —  And this new poll has good news for the Democratic ticket …

Andy McCarthy / The Corner:
You Guys Are Nuts  —  We have a disaster here — which is what you should expect when you delegate a non-conservative to make the conservative (nay, the American) case.  We can parse it eight ways to Sunday, but I think the commentary is missing the big picture.
CNN:
CNN Poll: Obama won the night  —  NASHVILLE, Tennessee (CNN) — A national poll of debate watchers suggests that Barack Obama won the second presidential debate.  —  Fifty-four percent of those questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released 30 minutes after the end …

Drunkblogging the McCain-Obama Bout  —  In the blue corner, Barack Obama.  In the red corner, John McCain.  Document the blows with a martini in hand, Vodkapundit's Stephen Green.  —  8:35PM Instant analysis?  McCain won, but not by nearly enough to matter.  He was up against a punk kid, and barely came away on points.
The Politico:
McCain proposes bailout for homeowners  —  Here are details of the plan Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced during Tuesday night's presidential debate “to keep families in their homes, avoid foreclosures, save failing neighborhoods, stabilize the housing market and attack the roots of our financial crisis”:

Andrew Sullivan / The Daily Dish:
Live-Blogging Nashville  —  10.33 pm.  This was, I think, a mauling: a devastating and possibly electorally fatal debate for McCain.  Even on Russia, he sounded a little out of it.  I've watched a lot of debates and participated in many.  I love debate and was trained as a boy in the British system to be a debater.

The Second Presidential Debate  —  Tonight's debate wasn't even close.  Sen. Barack Obama ran away with it — particularly when speaking about the economy and health care.  Talking about his mother's death from cancer was very powerful.  On nearly every issue, Obama was more substantive …

Ann Althouse / Althouse:
[I doubt that] Obama wore an earpiece that was clearly visible on HDTV.  —  (Enlarge.)  —  ADDED: Scrolling around and looking in different frames, I don't see it.  I think this picture creates an illusion of a clear plastic earpiece, but I can't see it in other frames.

Mark Steyn / The Corner:
Signing Off  —  This reader out-Andies Andy: … Steady on.  This next month is going to be a long month.  Lots of things will happen.  But McCain has to make some of them happen.  His charge that Obama doesn't know the difference between “strategy” and “tactics” could equally well be leveled at his own campaign.

Lisa Guerrero: Time to end this monkey business?  —  All in all it's been a rough few days for the monkeys.  —  On Friday night, the Angels' Rally Monkey let down the home crowd in Anaheim.  Although the team triumphed Sunday night in Boston, you can't credit the monkey unless he sneaked into Jared Weaver's suitcase.

McCaskill's edge  —  I mentioned a few days ago that Claire McCaskill's mild affect masks a bit of a killer, and perhaps the Obama campaign's deftest surrogate on the attack.  —  But I was still kind of amused by her brief interaction with Mitt Romney in the press file just now.

Your Thoughts On That One.  —  That one, as in, the second debate.  What did you think I meant?  —  (BTW: McCain uses “that one” frequently in his stump speeches; the set-up is usually clearer, as McCain refers to Obama's being one of the senators who supported it, not McCain — as in …
