As the first debate approaches, just one thing we know for sure: After it's over, Hugh Hewitt will say McCain won. Guaranteed.
The only thing that could keep Hewitt from saying that would be if McCain fell and cracked his head open on the podium, but even then, Hugh would likely say that such an accident had "humanized" McCain, and that Obama's reaction showed him unfit to lead.
UPDATE: Gee, how'd I know:

As expected, McCain shines and Obama is on the defensive throughout. The good news for Obama is that more than 30 minutes were not on the specifics of foreign policy. But Obama stumbled badly on Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan. McCain simply knows this stuff, and Obama again and again betrays that he does not.
