In the end, it's all a big game


And Fox News basically gave the nod to Obama, in a close decision, which was more in line to what I was thinking.

Anyway, it was my pleasure to cover. It was a competitive 90 minutes of sporting action, as good as the Patriots-Seahawks game on Sunday night.

As for Debate No. 3, my advice to the moderators is I wouldn’t waste the 90 minutes on jobs and foreign policy. Obama vs. Romney would be a fair fight, mano y mano, with nicely padded gloves: the slick kid vs. the cagey veteran.

I’m game to do this again, if they’re game.
