McCain McQuits Michigan
The pundits are going back and forth and not really saying much of anything. In short, the bobble heads matter is, who won the debate is to a great degree academic. In what can only be the stupidest tactical move in Political History, word got out of the McCain Campaign just hours before the debate that he was calling it QUITS IN MICHIGAN!

Hello, that is game, set and match, that trumps anything that could have happened in the debate this evening. Even if McCain and his staff had decided to pull up stakes and surrender Michigan to Obama, why would you, how could you let that news get out just hours before a MAJOR debate, the only debate between to the two Vice Presidential candidates? Perhaps they thought this map shaking and changing news would get swept under the carpet in the excitement of the debate?
