Conventional Wisdom

I agree with Rod and Jonah re Bush’s relative strength on domestic policy. This was true in the second debate as well, the one that covered both. Another piece of cw in need of revision: Maybe Kerry isn’t the one who’s the “strong closer.” (I know, KerrySpot has been on this case for a while now.)
