I didn't see the first 15 minutes and I don't care. I knew it was going to be the usual pundits talking about the debate. It's a little surprising to come here and find out Anderson had Jim Acosta and Jessica Yellin on the panel also, maybe giving the segment an even keel.

Romney did better than Obama in the debate yesterday but that doesn't change my vote.

The segment with Cornell Belcher and Ralph Reed was very surprising because Reed said some sensible and middle-of-the-road things. For example, he brought up the 2004 W and Kerry debates and said the election was decided by undecided only in the last couple weeks of the election. I also liked Belcher's comments about Romney and his fantasy concerning health care and taxes.

The debate body language segment... 'Star Trek 6' was on the SyFy channel.

Most surprising segment was Anderson talking to Alan Schroeder. Glad to see Schroeder back but more surprisingly, how long has it been since we've seen Anderson talk to a left-leaning guy one on one? It's been ages.

It was great seeing Ivan Watson again giving some good information about the skirmish between Turkey and Syria. Hope he stays safe.

When Anderson and Isha were talking about the mini-dinosaur, did Isha do a Count (from Sesame Street) impression? Hard to know for sure because she's British.

The most surprising element in the Ridiculist was the clip from Current TV. I haven't seen any Current TV since Olbermann left.

Gergen sounded like one debate essentially decided the race--some polls were showing that very little changed other than a Reuters poll showing that the president gained with independent voters--we'll get a better picture in a few days, but it's not over yet. Romney did a lot a lying during the debate and it was widely reported--instead of wasting time on a body language segment, AC360 should've done a better fact checking segment for both candidates--that would've been more helpful to viewers, IMO.

It is good to see Anderson talking with someone from the left, but I'd still like to see him have a one on one conversation with a Democratic politician the way he's had with McCain and Giuliani one day.

It does not matter what anyone on CNN thinks about the debates.
Jon Stewart told his audience last nite that he was 'disappointed with Obama and where was he?'
And then we, his viewers, were to meet him at camera 2. He does this when he's angry and wants to denounce someone and this time it was Obama for not showing any resistance to Romney's lies.
He said either Obama'wants the job as President or he doesn't.'
And what Jon Stewart says usually has influence in media and else where.
Yes, Obama lacked the 'fire in the belly' enthusiasm he had when he first ran and if he doesn't get it back soon, there may not be a second term.
Jon Stewart is correct. Come prepared or don't come at all.
