See No Evil?

This issue of John McCain not looking at Obama during the whole debate: was it insecurity, was it contempt, was it...what was it? Whatever it was, it was bizarre.

Here was one person's take:
"I think people really are missing the point about McCain's failure to look at Obama. McCain was afraid of Obama. It was really clear--look at how much McCain blinked in the first half hour. I study monkey behavior--low ranking monkeys don't look at high ranking monkeys. In a physical, instinctive sense, Obama owned McCain tonight and I think the instant polling reflects that."

A psychotherapist friend of mine said that he thinks it reflects a split in McCain's psyche...and that's all I understood...Lee, could you run that by me again?
Postscript: I just read David Broder's piece in the Washington Post where he turns it around and says that McCain was the Alpha Male ignoring the subordinate. Interesting.
