I thought Obama was extremely humble and thoughtful. He thought about his answers before answering the questions. He was more personal and considerate of others. On the other hand, McCain acted as if he had memorize his questions, also I thought he talked about the war too much. He wasn't personal at all. He didn't go into details about his first marriage, just enough to say I'm sorry, what a weak candidate.

Some comments were spoken like a true tunnel visioned democrat. I am a republican because of my conservative nature. However, I am liberal enough to give credit where credit is due when I say Sen. Obama did a good job with many of his responses, especially the first question. I was unsure as to how I would vote this fall until I listened to the compassion of Sen. John McCain. We may never again have a leader with self sacrificing integrity. Sen. John McCain, as I learned from this interview, is of the last great generation who HAS served a cause greater than his self interests. Sen. Obama isn't worthy to shine Sen. McCain's shoes when it comes to integrity and love of country. GOD BLESS AMERICA

DEAR JOHN'S TEARS ARE GOING TO MAKE YOU VOTE FOR
HIM, WELL CRY ME A RIVER!
JOHN MCCAIN IS GOING TO LEAD THIS COUNTRY RIGHT
DOWN THE TOILET, HE CAN'T LEAD, HE NEVER HAS,
HE NEVER WILL, HE WILL LOSE IN NOVEMBER!
HE WAS AT THE BOTTOM OF HIS CLASS AT THE NAVAL
ACADEMY, HE DOESN'T HAVE A LAW DEGREE, JUST LIKE
GEORGE BUSH, HE BARELY MADE IT THROUGH, HE MAY
BE A WAR-HERO, BUT HE ISN'T PRESIDENTIAL MATERIAL!
DON'T FALL FOR THE OKE-DOKE!

It's amazing to me how people can view the same thing and have such different perceptions. McCain had said the "right" answers and stated nothing new.

His answer to the greatest moral failure really got me. Of course he answered, "the failure of my first marriage" and then moved right along. He does not have nor never had any remorse about the situation and the question did not require him to state if he did or not. The wording of the question was safe.

Regardless of who ends up in the White House, this nation needs to humble itself and pray. We are in scary times.
