  2. I definitly agree here, Kerry did not come out firing or prove he was a better canidate. Honestly, neither canidate “won” the election, it was more Kerry Lost it.

  3. Kerry made a lot of very general claims, and seems to think he can accomplish anything if he has a year. He’s clearly putting timelines on things just to make people feel confident in his plans; a number makes the plan feel more solid.

    A good example of this is his claim that he can secure Russia’s nuclear material in short order. There are many variables involved in this act, including Russia. We’re not talking about securing our own material. We’re talking about securing Russia’s material. Putin is not going to let US troops guard his plutonium. There is an awful lot involved in securing Russian material that only Russia can do.

    And this Iraq timeline? We might be able to begin to make troop pullouts in six months if everything goes according to my plan? This sort of comment says and means nothing.

  5. John, I would be surprised if the president *wasn’t* on the defensive the whole night. He has the record to defend.

    I thought Kerry’s line about “I’ve been consistent. I’ve had one position on Iraq” is going to be good fodder for conservative talk radio tomorrow.

  6. A Lively Presidential Debate: Will The Race Tighten?
    You could sum up the first Presidential debate tonight as The Professorial Prosecutor versus the Convinced And Slightly Weary Incumbent. A ball wasn’t hit out of the ballpark — but it’s now clear the game is far from over…and could

  8. The Debate
    First, a few views from others: Steven Green thinks Kerry won on points, but does not think it will make much of a difference. He gave Bush a B- for content and a C+ for delivery, while giving Kerry a…
