The moderator mentioned several times to "talk to each other."
I was annoyed with both candidates at the beginning of the debate because neither of them wanted to enter into a conversation with the other. Instead, they preferred to simply preach to the audience.
As the debate progressed however, Obama turned to face McCain and began to try to address him directly, which I preferred. Unfortunately, McCain never responded.
I really wish they would sponsor a "Discussion" instead of a "Debate" sometime. I would be interested in seeing how candidates from different sides of the aisle attempt to work with each other to solve certain issues.
