    BHO another RWR?

    They both sort of muddle through their first term and the first debate as an incumbent:

    (A Commentary By Scott Rasmussen, the right leaning pollster)

    But it also leads to a second question. How will the president perform in the second debate? Incumbent presidents often struggle in the first debate and do better in the second. Ronald Reagan may be the greatest example of this.

    After a very poor performance in the first debate of 1984, many wondered whether Reagan's age had caught up with him. Walter Mondale and his team thought they had a chance. But the veteran performer turned it all around at the beginning of the second debate by pledging not to make his "opponent's youth and inexperience an issue" in the campaign. Even Mondale laughed, although he had to know his chances of winning the election disappeared at that moment.

    Does Obama have a comeback like that in him? We'll find out on Oct. 16.
