The McCains Have Left the Building

Actions speak louder than words.

C-Span kept the cameras at the latest debate running while the other networks went to pundits and talking heads. What C-Span showed was the Obamas walking through the audience, shaking hands, signing autographs, having pictures taken.

So what, you say?

Barack and Michelle Obama stayed to talk to "the people" (Joe and Joann Six-pack as Palin would say) - to talk to them directly without the "filter of the media" (another Palinism). And the response? All you had to do was to watch the faces of those who had been in the town hall meeting as they met the couple personally, as they passed cameras back and forth, as they spoke directly to the candidate and his wife.

Where were the McCains? Not there. Maybe on their way to their private plane.
No that's not fair...the plane is the McCain's campaign plane.

Actions speak louder than words. People need to see that the candidates can respond to them people.

The Obamas were doing that while the McCains were...gone.
