For any Corner readers who are still in any doubt, let’s take a stroll down debate memory lane:
Barack Obama’s initial stuttering and stammering through the opening primary debate.
Giuliani in NH bizarrely unprepared the abortion issue. Huh? He had to know it would come up.
George Bush in 2004 running out of material after the first half hour.
Al Gore in 2000. Where to start? The clown face, the sighing, the eyeball rolling, showing up to debate number two beaten down like an spanked puppy.
Bill Bradley. The media’s favorite brooder.
Jack Kemp “just wingin’ it.”
And these are only a few off the top of my head.
