RE: and the winner of 1st debate is......?
Even the talking heads on Fox are saying Kerry won. I'm proud of him. He looked presidential, kept his answers concise, and the claim that he actually is more relaxed and is more effective when he is under extreme pressure is obviously true, and that new perception alone is worth a million votes. I think both candidates worked their talking points as well as the other, but Kerry came across as a man who could handle the job of President of the US, and tonight that was the #1 thing he had to do.
Bush was over-rehearsed. His answers looked planned and canned, and he relied too much on his "We're making progress" sloganeering, and he attacked Kerry when he should have been giving us an idea what he would do. Kerry hit him hard towards the end when he said Bush was out of touch with reality - because Bush did in fact look out of touch with reality.
I believe the end result of this is that we will now actually have a presidential election. Now you know why Bush's handlers want him talking as little as possible to the general public. Without the GOP Koolaid Crowd behind him, he comes across as what he is - an inflexibe guy who is out of his league.
