RE: Where Kerry Went Wrong
Bush is in deep shit in the second debate - that's the town hall meeting one, I beleive, that he tried to have canceled. I loved watching old sourpuss Krauthammer whining on Fox today, saying that Bush should have skipped the debates. The other talking head said "But not debating - wouldn't that have cost him votes?" Krauthammer said, yes, but debating is going to cost him the election. It was a better risk to skip the debates. He was actually calling on Bush to cancel the next two.
The problem is Bush. Its been whispered for months that his mental state is in trouble due to the strain - he is testy and dictatorial to everyone around him, and is pissed off easily. There must be some truth to that, because thats how he looked Thursday night. His handlers are scared to death how that's going to play in a crowd of average voters. The other problem is that Kerry is not Gore. Gore came across in ther townhall meetings as patronizing with his elementary-school teacher attitude. Kerry on the other hand, is a naturally charming guy who knows how to work a room. Should be interesting.
