Anger management counselors note that the inability to look someone in the eye when you are having a discussion is a bad sign. McCain refused to look at Obama, while Barack looked right at McCain. A psychotherapist tells Josh Marshall what he thinks it means.
I think it’s significant that McCain didn’t make much, if any, eye contact because it suggests one of two things to me; he doesn’t want to make eye contact because he is prone to losing control of his emotions if he deals directly with the other person, or, his anger masks fear and the eye contact may increase or substantiate the fear.
Judge for your self.
