Starts at 9 p.m. Eastern.

It’s hard to imagine that Romney will crush Obama as badly as in the first debate.  It just has to be more even, which will be enough for the MSM’s “comeback kid” narrative which already has been written.  Maybe there was a time the media could drive that narrative, but it may be too late for that.

This is just an open thread for people to make their feelings known. I’m not going to “live blog” it.

And at the end, there will be an assessment.

So have at it.

Update: My column at USA Today, Obama needed debate blowout but didn’t get it.
