First debate: First impressions

Here are my thoughts on the first presidential debate:

On style, Romney gets an A. He was enthusiastic, aggressive, and well-coached. Obama's style, for many, was a B. He was solemn, thoughtful, and guarded.

Romney reminded me of a college freshman, full of himself, confident that he knows all he needs to know and has all the answers. Obama, on the other hand, came across as the adult, seasoned by experience, knowing that every policy has consequences.

Who do you want for president, the kid with style or the adult with thoughtful experience?
