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 …
Mary Katharine Ham / Weekly Standard:
Chris Matthews Post-Debate Drooling  —  This is not a parody: … Update: Olbermann keeps it classy: “McCain, and I'm trying to say this as nicely as possible, didn't look like a well man wandering around on that stage tonight.”
Discussion: Stop The ACLU
Deacon / Power Line:
OBAMA EDGES CLOSER TO THE PRESIDENCY  —  I thought that Barack Obama won the “visuals” of tonight's debate.  He looked younger and more vigorous, of course, but, in addition, John McCain did too much moving around.  He seemed focused on addressing a “town hall,” as he has done so well over the years.

Drunkblogging the McCain-Obama Bout  —  In the blue corner, it's Barack Obama.  In the red corner, it's John McCain.  Ready to document the blows with a martini in hand, it's Vodkapundit's Stephen Green.  —  8:35PM Instant analysis?  McCain won, but not by nearly enough to matter.
Michelle Malkin:
McCain wants to spend $300 billion to buy up bad mortgages; Martin Feldstein behind it  —  Scroll down for updates...McCain's April 15 remarks added below...Economist Martin Feldstein pitched the plan in the WSJ...see response below...  I can't underscore enough what a rotten idea John McCain's ACORN-like government mortgage buy-up is.

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.

Taegan Goddard's Political Wire:
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 …

[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.

Dean Baker / American Prospect:
If Social Security Was a Private Corporation Then it Would Sue Tom Brokaw for Every Penny He Has  —  If a news reporter deliberately makes a false statement claiming that a private company like Boeing or Microsoft is going broke, the company has the right to sue the reporter and the news agency.
The Huffington Post:
Who Won The Debate?  Clean Sweep For Obama  —  The insta-polls, which provide viewers with a somewhat skewed but important insight into how each candidate fared say, by and large, that Obama scored a victory in the second debate.  —  NBC's focus group of undecided Pennsylvania voters …

Bob Cesca / The Huffington Post:
That One?!  —  They say that Senator McCain's strong suit is the town hall debate.  If this was, in fact, Senator McCain's strength, he might as well go home.  Sorry... homes.  —  While not as smirky as the first debate, Senator McCain was jittery, reptilian (the darting tongue), scattered and overall just plain creepy.
