WASHINGTON — John McCain last night tried hard to make the first presidential debate a test of Barack Obama’s fitness for office. McCain succeeded in his framing of the test — but Obama passed it.

In an encounter that seems destined to be remembered more for its substance than any quips or gaffes, the two candidates defended their positions stoutly, outlined clear contrasts for the voters, and showed a command of the issues that was greater than in most past presidential debates.

McCain persuasively cast himself as a government reformer committed to cutting spending; but Obama forcefully argued that cutting spending alone would not revitalize the economy. Source Article
