Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said it was unlikely that the upcoming presidential debates would provide a game-changing moment.
“I can’t remember the last time there was one of the comments that grabbed everyone’s attention because the candidates are too well-prepared,” McCain said on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday.
He called modern debates “scripted,” noting that both candidates could well anticipate the questions that will be asked. Despite this, McCain predicted that the first debate would be the most-watched in history.
The Arizona senator defended Romney’s campaign as “vigorous” and said Obama was leading because, “Americans probably feel better than they did before about jobs and the economy.”
