McCain says we “need a new direction” and points to his record of reform. He comes back to “trust” — not something he really touched on before. But after mentioning “trust” he really doesn’t explain why he is trustworthy and Obama is not.
Obama is practically floating on air. For once invoking the Great Depression is not an exaggeration. He comes back to “fundamental change.” He is soothing, calm and utterly at ease. He suspects he has this in the bag. He knows that he gave voters no reason to think he’d be a risky, dangerous leap into the abyss.
