I watched the debate tonight (taking occasional breaks). I thought Kerry did better than I expected after a slow start with his first response. Bush was about what I expected, plenty of talking points, over, and over, and over, and over, and over… Bush also spent more time not answering questions than I would have liked to see. Bush also looked bored and indolent while Kerry was talking. Once again harping on Bush, he said something about trying to love the mother of a man killed in Iraq. Not sure what that was about. I was surprised to hear Bush mention his opposition to the world court (and disappointed that there wasn't an Abu-Ghraib related response). I was wondering if Kerry kept saying "proliferation" since he knew Bush would have trouble saying it.

Anyway, I like Kerry more than I did before and my opinion of Bush hasn't really changed since the first debate I saw him in with Gore.

I'm curious to see what the general reaction is. I was pretty out of step with the rest of the country on the Gore/Bush debates.

I need to figure out when the VP debate is. Edwards seems more interesting than Kerry (and Cheney has always seemed more vicious/devious/evil/intelligent than Bush). Ah, Tuesday at 8pm. Done.
