Andrew Nail, age 8, watches the debate:
“Why is McCain so mad?”
“Why is he so old like Grammy?
“Daddy, when McCain smiles like that (i.e., the smirk) I think he is really mad at Obama”.
“I don’t like it when he acts like that.”
“Why isn’t he looking at Obama? Barack looks at him. I think he is trying to be mean.”
“Obama looks better.”
“When McCain talks it bores me and when Obama talks it excites me.”
