McCain Shines at Saddleback Forum

Rachel's article on the Saddleback Forum is excellent.

I would add only two things.

First, obviously McCain exceeded virtually everyone's expectations. There were a lot of conservatives, especially at NRO, who thought this would be a highlight reel for Obama and that McCain would just go along and say me too. But this was McCain at his finest. In fact, I think it's the McCain you see at his town hall meetings only this time it was in front of a national audience. You can see why he won over people to his side. Hopefully, he acquits himself as well at the Presidential debates in the fall.

Second, his sense of humor. Much of it was self-deprecating and when he employs it he comes off as a human being with a touch of humility rather than someone who can lift oceans.

Bottom line here is that I don't think Democrats should be buying homes in the DC Metro Area just yet.
