Too Personal?

TOO PERSONAL?....The CNN folks are saying that all the snap polls show Obama the winner of tonight's debate. There's nothing too surprising about that, but I'd sure like to know why. I've heard all this stuff so many times before that it's almost impossible for me to have a genuine reaction to either guy, so I can only guess what average viewers were reacting to. Best guess is that they thought McCain was too snarky and took a few too many personal shots. That's not presidential.

UPDATE: For the record, CNN's poll has Obama winning 51%-38%. CBS has Obama winning 39%-25%.
