Barack Obama Slams McCain on Afghanistan-Iraq War Issue!
By: Phillip Arroyo
On what was truly a historic first 2008 presidential debate, Democratic candidate Senator Barack Obama surprised critics and followers as well by according to many of them, effectively dominating the first presidential debate, on issues considered to be Republican presidential candidate John McCain's stronpoints; national defense and international policy!
Such an impressive showing by Senator Obama has many critics and political analysts indicating a potential downshift in Senator McCain's campaign. I on the contrary personally believe that both candidates held their own throughout the entire debate, although I did see Senator Obama with a slight edge due in part to his confidence, eye contact and demeanor. As for the rest of the debates, it seems everything should continue to shift in Obama's favor, due to the fact that these will be focused on domestic issues, specifically the economy.
