Post-last debate

I thought both candidates were so-so on substance, but in this debate style was crucial. Romney came across as Mr. Rogers, while Obama projected himself as Lurch. That makes Romney the winner; his main objective here was to not look reckless and scary, and I think he managed to accomplish that. (Incidentally, contrary to urban legend, Mr. Rogers was not a sniper.)
