Non-neutral sentences removed.[edit]

I've removed these sentences:

"The candidates' approaches to the questions and answers contrasted greatly. Obama took longer than McCain in answering the questions and was not able to answer as many. He relied heavily on allegories and quoted bible passages more often than McCain who focused more on his experience and positions on the issues."

How do we know that Obama took longer in answering questions? Does "longer than McCain in answering the questions" mean that he spoke for longer, or that there were longer pauses before he started answering? Was someone timing answers to questions, and if so, can we see a detailed breakdown on the talk page? How do we know that Obama relied more heavily on allegories? Is there a list of allegories that he used? These senteces seem more like opinion than neutral reporting. If someone has expressed this opinion about the QA session, then please quote them directly in the article. - Borofkin (talk) 03:37, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

If you watched it you would know. Its a fact that Obama answered fewer questions in the 60 minutes allotted which means that he took longer. The number of times he quoted the bible and told life stories was more often than McCain.--William Saturn (talk) 04:08, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
