Live-Blogging the First Presidential Debate

9:37 PM. Obama effectively plays the "...but you guys have been in power for eight years, you idiot" card.

9:32 PM. I'm sorry, but McCain does not look good.

9:25 PM. McCain seems feisty, but effective; Obama seems strong and decisive. They both seem pretty populist to me thus far.

9:16 PM. Obama uses his "tax cut for 95% of working families" line. According to what I've read, it'd actually be more like 87%.

9:13 PM. McCain returns to one of the themes of his convention speech: Republicans "came to change Washington, and Washington changed us."

9:11 PM. Obama haaaaaaaaates trickle-down economics.

9:08 PM. McCain: "I warned about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, too!"

9:04 PM. Strong opening by Obama, with a nice jab at Bush/McCain.
