Did Last Night's Debate Decide It For You?

Okay, a quick question. (Yes, I'm still taking a break. This doesn't count. Seriously. It doesn't. Stop it.) Did last night's presidential debate change your mind, or decide it for you? Reading in various forums and so on a ton of responses to the debate, I got the impression that everybody who watched it already knew going in for whom they intended to vote (and, naturally, their man slaughtered the other guy).
It got me wondering: Did the debate---or do any "debates" like it---ever change, or finally decide, anyone's mind?
Did last night's debate change yours? Had you suspected Obama of being too slick and vague---but instead found him judicious, sincere, and trenchantly intelligent? Did you used to think McCain so rabidly ambitious it was clear he's say anything to anyone he was trying to impress---but now think him a humble and dignified Man of the People?
Did the debate change or decide your mind at all? If so, share here!
