Last night's debate effectively showed that when the president does not have his teleprompter he struggles to sound convincing. While the press is subdued in its evaluation of round 1 in the presidential debates, it is quite obvious that Romney won this round by a comfortable margin. It will be interesting to see if the next one, which is on foreign policy, has a different result. Oh, and please, let's get another moderator. Instead of the milquetoast Jim Lehrer perhaps Simon Cowell could moderate. I think he would at least keep them to their allotted time in their answers and be fair in giving additional time to both if he indeed gave any. Last night's futile attempt at moderating by Lehrer was a joke.
