I hope somebody was watching.
Kerry seemed at times to be talking without purpose, searching for issues or themes. I think he has done that in all the debates, but especially evident tonight. Kerry appeared every bit the patrician, whereas Bush, probably for the first time in these debates, was able to project his more down-to-earth personality. Bush also demonstrated a wide range of knowledge. Kerry’s reference to Cheney’s lesbian daughter seemed under-handed and utterly irrelevant. Children should be off limits.
