I think it was an even outcome.
As this was meant to be focused on Foreign policy, they touched on the usual bases - Iraq, Afghanistan and Russia. But only towards the very end of the debate did Barack Obama mention Africa in a sentence where he talked about the growing influence of China around the world while the US remained fixated with Iraq.
So much for an African policy?
Update: Upon seeing the transcript, I realised that I'd missed another reference to Africa made by John McCain. Here it is:
"And I have a record -- and Somalia, I opposed that we should turn -- turn the force in Somalia from a peacekeeping force into a peacemaking force, which they were not capable of."
