Obama Takes Charge And Wins Debate

Obama Takes Charge And Wins Debate, The president successfully harps on a problem with Romney throughout the forum, says Jeff Greenfield. Obama wins the second debate. Too bad it's not the one that mattered., When the evening began, one observation dominated the conversation: "If President Barack Obama has another debate like the last one, the election's over."

When the evening ended, I was struck by a different thought: If Obama had performed this way at the first debate, the election would have been over.

In every debate, whatever the format, whatever the questions, there is one and only one way to identify the winner: Who commands the room? Who drives the narrative? Who is in charge? More often than not on Tuesday night, I think, Obama had the better of it.
