Greensboro, NC -- When you score a debate, you take into account the debaters delivery and perception. But what stood out in terms of their body language?

Body language expert Blanca Cobb watched the interview in the WFMY News 2 Information Center. She said there was a glaring difference in President Obama's body language. "He brought his game. This is very exciting debate for me. As soon as he walked in, curtains were up, he walks in with a strut, reminded me of John Travolta in the movie Saturday Night Fever. He was very confident from the get-go and he let it be known he's a very confident contender."

She also said Governor Mitt Romney maintained his position from the first debate. "He came across confident, at times, he did bull-doze, he was willing to stand his ground, and say I'm in, you know I'm a competitor, you need to listen to what I have to say." She said he also seemed more relaxed and managed to connect with the audience.

She also touched on the sparring and contentious moments of the debate. To hear her full interview, click play in the video window.
