Welcome back during the -- showdown Senator Biden and governor -- -- went head to head on foreign policy but it was.
Senator Biden's comments on Hezbollah that raised a few eyebrows.
Bill Burton joins us now from the Obama campaign now what happened in this is if he was talking about Hezbollah.
And -- How we should have kicked them out of Lebanon mother -- very much alive in Lebanon part of the government in fact a good morning -- you mr.
But not exactly what he intended to come out correct I.
I assume he was talking about Syria when referring to Lebanon.
And -- -- and its relation.
Well when he was discussing what is at the end of 2006.
When has more troops were booted out of southern.
But you know ultimately the thing about that debate that's so important for the American people is that.
Joseph Biden made a strong case for Barack Obama and the sort of change that he's gonna bring and Sarah Palin though good debater but -- -- -- etc.
Did but he did mean Syria.
Somebody under 2000 let's just clear that -- it's fine.
It's fine in 2006.
It's that has led troops in southern Lebanon and you can look it up and I consented article right after that's a -- but what Sarah Palin failed to do in the debate was.
Make any clear articulation of how of McCain Palin administration would be different from what we've had from bush and Cheney.
That's what voters want it now that's what the McCain and -- and Tim have been unable to do so -- I -- bill so many people had said.
-- -- Palin exceeded expectations they liked her sort of folksy style she looks right in the camera she seemed extremely confident she didn't seem rattled.
Now for the person Saturday morning quarterbacking I guess if that's the right expression.
Do you wish that Senator Biden had -- terror on a few more issues are challenged her -- No because that -- the reason that we're so happy with the debate is that.
Did John McCain himself has conceded that this is an election about change and so when Joseph Biden went out there and press the case for how Senator Obama is actually gonna get.
All Americans covered with affordable healthcare and how is good fundamentally change our policy in Iraq Iraq getting our combat troops out of there.
And Sarah Palin Palin was unable to talk about.
-- -- be -- foreign or domestic policy on how the McCain administration would be different.
I just think that she missed an opportunity but voters were able to see in clear terms the differences between the two administration well.
Let's solve everyone's voting for who -- on top of the ticket and October 7 they go head to head once again do John McCain and Barack Obama that is.
In Belmont university in its town hall format bill which people say favors John McCain how do you feel about that.
Well I don't think anybody doubts that John McCain is the undisputed town hall champion he basically -- Barack Obama do town halls over the course last couple months sent.
He did he knew he loves doing town halls is probably done hundreds of them and is.
-- long senate career but you know at the end of the day we think that Barack Obama is gonna be able to make the case for.
For how it is that his health care plan disappear did John McCain's just is a specific example that something that rock of I was -- they're talking about today.
And did as Senator Obama I'm not -- do you tell -- -- he refused John McCain's invitation because it's like not he is.
Well you know we actually even though John McCain loves to do the town halls and you know asked us to do some we responded and said that we would be willing to do a couple before these three debates that we're we're -- through the commission but.
Instead of wanting to do -- the McCain campaign just respond with a press release send.
Made it into a partisan snipe and attacked him and so we weren't able to do any before this but -- outlook on Tuesday when.
The chips are down Barack Obama's gonna talk about how his plan is gonna get folks covered with affordable accessible health care and John McCain's plan which is a radical look.
At health care is gonna bring it may be twenty million people lot of -- the health care that they currently have and -- -- raise the cost of health care for.
Millions of America.
