20. Right you are.

Most people have their minds made up. What Obama needed to be was who he is. Cool and funny. Truthful and sober. If he had gone after Bain or the tax returns, he would have looked small.

Obama knows that you only attack your opponent when the audience wants you to. The audience hasn't gotten to the point where they want to see Obama smash Romney direct attacks. They need Romney to yap at Obama's knees, and fake a smile, and tell half-truths a few more times. It's early.
