Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

I am sure McCain was trying to play elder statesman to young wipper snapper, but I think it may have come across as "look, you dumb nigger". McCain needed a big score. He did better than I expected, but he failed at twisting Obama into the storied Obambi we hear so much of here. Instead, Obama came across as logical, analytical and tough. McCain came across as tough and emotional - jesus, isn't that what we have now? McCain looked like the past, Obama like the future. Win goes to Obama, IMO, and it earned big votes.
The mean old man factor. I think Obama did a better job than McCain in regard to reaching/swaying undecideds because of that. Obama came across as a nicer and more interesting guy. But each performed up to expectations and spoke well to his supporters.

McCain came off as a condescending drama queen, who pulled out his POW card right before the timer ran out.

Christian Science Monitor refers to the Palin-Couric interview as "the outing".
