What do you call using millions in unregulated campaign funds to sell the American people dog food by telling them it's something else? That is precisely what happened in Denver, as Gov. Romney rebranded his entire platform.
Mitt Romney may have come out of last Wednesday's debate a short-term winner, but did little to solve his biggest long-term challenge in this election: his inability to convince voters they can trust him.
Obama may have struggled somewhat during the debate, at least in terms of style, but he was back on form the next day, and it's this sort of leadership that we need to see much more of in the two debates to come.
