Final Thoughts


The debate was a draw. Kerry was a much better debater with more facts, even if not all true. Bush was more likeable and consistent.

Kerry might have eeked out the most points. But, he didn’t do enough to win decisively and, given his standing in the polls, he got no where.

This debate will not, I think, do much for Kerry and will not shift the polls.

At least we have the theme — John Kerry, the Urban Legends Candidate.
