Question: Who won the debate, and why?
My Answer: I didn't watch too much, but I caught pieces here and there. Kerry kept saying "I'll do better" and Bush kept saying "uhhh" when pausing for words. Bush won, 53% to 47%, only because Kerry can say he has a plan all he wants, but it seems to involve "magic." Magic money to pay for everything, magic ways to renew alliances with countries that, like him, want sanctions. Sanctions, as Bush pointed out, haven't worked in Iraq. Bush won.
As an aside, I must question the hypocrisy of Dan Rather covering the debates. You know, given Rathergate and all that… Ugh.
