My personal reaction while watching live the last of the third debate between Senator Barrack Obama and Senatohr John McCain was answering questions sitting facing each other around a table.
How did they fare as table topics speakers?
Initially both have to overcome nervousness:
Obama: I felt he tried to keep himself looking cool and focused. Seldom smile, serious. Lots of ehs when he struggles.
McCain: Tried to look cheerful and smile and even laugh. His eyes wink a lot and he always seem to make his eyes bigger. Always using the paper and pen to give the impression that he is taking down notes.
Obama: Flashed his rare all teeth bared smile when John McCain made a claim he does not agreed. Based his argument of facts and numbers. More logical.
McCain: Used his hand gestures liberally. Like to bring out names of others and tell stories. More personal.
