In which John talks about Tom Brokaw, because the debate featured so few fireworks. (I do look forward, however, to someone mashing up all of McCain's "my friends.")

Hi there politiconiacs, my name is John Green and I'm a novelist and also a video blogger.

When I was watching tonight's debate I was struck by the fact that it's that rare occasion in the world of political debating where there is a clear winner. The winner of course was Tom Brokaw.

Aside from being the longest surviving of the big three network news anchors, (looking off camera, as if addressing someone in the room) What's that? Dan Rather's still alive? Really? Is he, like, in a home or something? No, he's on HD net? Jesus, I'd rather be in a home. (back at camera) Okay, fine, aside from being the longest surviving network news anchor who works for an organization I've heard of, I think we can all agree that Tom Brokaw's performance was fantastic. He was funny and charming and showed an excellent grasp of the issues.

By the way, I apologize if this is pour quality vlogging, I played a drinking game during the debate where I had to drink every time someone said "fundamental difference" or "my friends". So of course I'm shellacked.

The second winner of the debate, behind Tom Brokaw, has to be Barack Obama. He sounded smart, he sounded ready to go, he sounded fired up! And while he was sounding that way, John McCain was busy walking around the background of the stage like he was lost.

This debate was all about the economy and I agree with the plurality of undecided voters in saying that Obama just knows how to handle that subject with a little more clarity than McCain.

Regardless of whether you think Obama won the debate, or you're for some reason crazy, I want to say thanks for watching and participating in our political process. And I'll see ya some other time in this (pause) campfire lighting.
