Debate Predictions

Making predicitions is always dangerous…but here are mine:


  • This debate will the lowest rated of all four — Obama’s lead is ossifying; despite the darndest effort of the media (who has no incentive to create a compelling storyline and attract viewers) to make the race appear closer than it is, people are beginning to resign themselves to take Obama’s lead for granted. (Anti-jinxing measure: I’m not guaranteeing Obama wins the election, just that the strength of his lead looms).
  • McCain will half-heartedly raise the Ayers issue; it will fall flat.
  • The media will give the debate to Obama — even the media has to admit that merely showing up isn’t good enough down by 8 with 3 weeks to go.
