So I didn’t get to watch very much of this tonight. Frankly, I don’t think it’s a terrifically important moment in the campaign: you could not pick a slower night for ratings than a Saturday in August opposite Michael Phelps. But I did see the last 10 or 15 minutes of Obama’s interview. I thought he was effective. And I saw the first 10 or 15 minutes of McCain’s interview. I thought he was effective. What did you guys think?
