→ The Last Presidential Debate

I think Yuval Levin’s summary of the last presidential debate sums up my thoughts nicely:

It was absolutely clear that both candidates understood that this debate was entirely about Mitt Romney. Romney’s only goal was to seem presidential, and Obama’s only goal was to make Romney seem not presidential. By that measure, Romney clearly achieved his aim and Obama clearly did not. Romney did this by treating this debate very differently than the other two. He didn’t really try to score points, and he wasn’t afraid to express agreement with Obama, which he did remarkably often. His goal was to answer every question with a calm, responsible attitude and convey sobriety and level-headedness.

I, like Mr. Levin, am not sure if this means Governor Romney will be our next president, but I think this debate showed he would be an excellent commander-in-chief.
