The contrast between the respective candidates' performances at the Saddleback Forum was startling.
Not only did McCain beat Obama handily on substance, but the latter lost on style — his alleged strong point — as well. Obama may be able to raise his style points during this fall's debates, he may even be able to get up to speed on the issues — but Saturday night unequivocally showed Obama's supporters that one irremediable difference is, in fact, a serious problem: the chasm between his experience and McCain's.

Obama's going to need his presumed enormous advantage in funds as well as the continued assistance of the media.
Despite spending more money to this point than any candidate in history, Obama can't separate from McCain.
