RE: Who won?
Have to give props to the Bush prep team, certainly a big improvement over the "Squabble in Coral Gables", so he get's the "most improved" award.
Kerry obviously came in with a hefty dose of confidence from the last outting. Perhaps because we've heard the President's attack so many times, it's beginning to sound old and irrelevant, such as the "he didn't vote for the war appropriation", when Kerry has shown the other side of the story. Repetition is making Bush appear stuck. Kerry stayed deliberate and deft at difusing Bush's attacks. Truth be told, economics and social issues are not the current administration's strong suit.
As for both, I wish the candidates would be more responsive to the questions, rather than skewing the response to attack their opponents. Gibson tried to keep them on track, but failed.
