Family duties meant I only saw 45 minutes of the debate. I didn't think it was as boring as some predicted but punting it out as a DVD would be an easy way to lose money. They were all being a bit too nice to one another but I didn't spot any clangers.
A key staffer in John McCain's campaign argued tonight on Radio 4 that it is not the debate that impacts on the polls but rather the perceived wisdom about them which takes a few days to develop. On that score my perception is that Clegg used the opportunity the best of the three of them in terms of handling the debate and getting a message out there. Cameron and Brown I had about even, both seemed that little bit more rehearsed.
UPDATE according to the polls the wisdom of the crowd is 1.Clegg 2. Cameron 3.Brown.
