Turns out I'm not the only one who loves David Gergen! Who knew?? He is a "handsome baked potato" indeed. That voice. That calm. And I nearly swooned during the post-analysis on Last Debate Night. CNN's debate-watch poll numbers were rolling in and they were, um, not good for McCain. On every measure, viewers preferred Obama's "debate" performance.
Anderson Cooper (who is himself more than a bit swoon-inducing) turned to Gergen and said, in effect, "Okay, the McCain campaign has tried everything and nothing works. So what do they do tomorrow?" And Gergen looked up at Anderson, gazed at him for a few seconds, and said "Beats the hell out of me."
Ahhhhhhhh. David . . . Let me count the ways.
