At the second presidential debate in Nashville, Tennessee last night, John McCain needed [to] do something to knock Barack Obama off his stride. The Democratic candidate has pulled ahead in the crucial states during the financial crisis in the past couple of weeks. But it doesn't look as if McCain managed it, here's our North America editor Justin Webb.

This is the spin room, the place where their candidate representatives, come to tell us how well they did at seconds after the debate. And there's a real buzz here, there's a real sense that something important happened tonight with both of the candidates really showing how frustrated they are with each other.

Do you know Senator Obama is proposing 860 billion dollars of new spending now? He voted for nearly a billion dollars in pork barrel earmark projects, including, by the way, three million dollars for an overhead projector at a planetarium in Chicago, Illinois. My friends, do we need to spend that kind of money?

That was one of many attacks from John McCain on the subject of Barack Obama's loose approach to spending taxpayers' money, the suggestion is that Obama has found underhand ways of enriching his state. McCain also suggested that Obama has always been a raiser of taxes. Obama hit back though, when John McCain claimed to be interested in changes to energy policy, he pounced.

Senator McCain and I actually agree on something. He said a while back that the big problem with energy is that for thirty years politicians in Washington haven't done anything. What Senator McCain doesn't mention is he's been there 26 of them, and during that time, he voted 23 times against alternative fuels.

On balance, McCain was more aggressive, perhaps more niggly, though Obama certainly came prepared for a fight on foreign policy, he had marshaled his arguments and made a successful effort to get his retaliation in first.

Now Senator McCain suggests that somehow, you know, I'm green behind the ears, and he is somber and responsible. This is the guy who sang bomb bomb bomb Iran, who called for the annihilation of North Korea. We hadn't even finished Afghanistan where he said next up! Baghdad.

The McCain message was unrelenting though, Obama was not fit for the job. At one stage, McCain referred to his opponent like this.

You know who voted for it? That one. You know who voted against it? Me.

Might that go down as a gaffe, it seemed for a moment as if McCain couldn't bring himself to utter the name of his opponent, but generally he kept his temper and the thread of his argument as with this answer about Iraq and other foreign matters.

And I can tell you right now that Senator Obama would have brought our troops home in defeat, I'll bring them home with victory and with honor, and that is a fundamental difference. The United States of America is the greatest force for good as I said. And we must do whatever we can to prevent genocide, but it also has to be tempered with our ability to beneficially affect the situation. That requires a cool hand at the tiller.

Back in the spin room, we've just been talking to David Axelrod, Barack Obama's chief strategist, and he says that his man dominated on all the issues that counted, that issue will itself be tested in the polls in the days ahead. The two of them [will] meet again for the last time next week in New York.

That was one of many attacks from John McCain on the subject of Barack Obama's loose approach to spending taxpayers' money,
/the suggestion is that Obama has found underhand ways of enriching his state. McCain also suggested that Obama has always been a raiser of taxes. Obama hit back though, when John McCain claimed to be interested in changes to energy policy, he pounced.

Senator McCain and I actually agree on something. He said a while back that the big problem with energy is that for thirty years politicians in Washington haven't done anything. What Senator McCain doesn't mention is he's been there 26 of them, and during that time, he voted 23 times against alternative fuels.

On balance, McCain was more aggressive, perhaps more niggly, though Obama certainly came prepared for a fight on foreign policy, he had marshaled his arguments and made a successful effort to get his retaliation in first.

Now Senator McCain suggests that somehow, you know, I'm green behind the ears, and he is somber and responsible. This is the guy who sang bomb bomb bomb Iran, who called for the annihilation of North Korea. We hadn't even finished Afghanistan where he said next up! Baghdad.

The McCain message was unrelenting though, Obama was not fit for the job. At one stage, McCain referred to his opponent like this.

You know who voted for it? That one. You know who voted against it? Me.

Might that go down as a gaffer, it seemed for a moment as if McCain couldn't bring himself to utter the name of his opponent, but generally he kept his temper and the threat of his argument as with this answer about Iraq and other foreign matters.

And I can tell you right now that Senator Obama would have brought our troops home in defeat, I'll bring them home with victory and with honor, and that is a fundamental difference. The United States of America is the greatest force for good as I said. And we must do whatever we can to prevent genocide, but it also has to be tempered with our ability to beneficially affect the situation. That requires a cool hand at the tiller.

Back in the spin room, we've just been talking today with Axelrod, Barack Obama's chief strategist, and he says that his man dominated on all the issues that counted, that issue will itself be tested in the polls in the days ahead. The two of them [will] meet again for the last time next week in New York.

At the second presidential debate in Nashville, Tennessee last night, John McCain needed [to] do something to knock Barack Obama off his stride. The Democratic candidate has pulled ahead in the crucial states during the financial crisis in the past couple of weeks. But it doesn't look as if McCain managed it, here's our North America editor Justin Webb.

This is the spin room, the place where their candidate representatives, come to tell us how well they did at seconds after the debate. And there's a real buzz here, there's a real sense that something important happened tonight with both of the candidates really showing how frustrated they are with each other.

Do you know Senator Obama is proposing 860 billion dollars of new spending now? He voted for nearly a billion dollars in pork barrel earmark projects, including, by the way, three million dollars for an overhead projector at a planetarium in Chicago, Illinois. My friends, do we need to spend that kind of money?
