Who came out on top in the first presidential debate?

Posted Sept. 29, 2008, at 2:55 p.m.

Presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama faced-off Friday night and answered questions on the economy and foreign policy. Did Sen. McCain hit the mark with his repeated call for cutting Congressional earmarks? Or did Sen. Obama score points with voters by outlining his tax policy that raises taxes on those earning $250,000 or more? Which candidate looked more presidential? Why? Was Sen. Obama too professorial? Sen. McCain too testy?
