Obama never mentioned the Keating 5, which is another kind of economic experience. Or the neat way that he has experienced both sides of nearly every issue he's ever dealt with, up to and including the issue of whether to show up for the debate tonight.
Obama's own closing was a sweet, but somewhat dull, reminder that the US is the greatest country in the world, which it is -- but we all knew that going in, didn't we?
The talking heads are going at it right now on both NPR and CNN, because Father A. is a multitasker. But we'll let them fight out the results, which we call a near-draw, ever so slightly in Obama's favor.
We need our beauty rest, so that we can rise bright and chipper to teach deacons the history of the Mass.
