Again, this is a world away from the first debate. A lot of that is due to the president’s more alert and confident demeanor. But a lot of the difference also has to do with the fact that Kerry’s record has been put on the table–by the questions, and by the president’s attacks. Necessarily, that changes the dynamic and tends to even up the battle. Again, I think the president is winning. But at minimum, the dynamic in this debate is vastly different and far more favorable to the president than the first debate.
