First Presidential Debate

I have to confess that I got fidgety a lot last night. I swear, back when I was in high school watching the Bush-Dukakis debates I was able to pay attention with greater patience. So my observations are worth what you pay for them.

It looked to me like Bush was well prepared, but as dull and uninterested in the topics as usual. As long as he could respond from his repertoire of talking points, he sounded strong. But whenever he had to generate original thoughts, he got that deer-in-headlights look.

Kerry, OTOH, did a decent job of taking each question, considering it in it's complete, historical context, and the generating a relevant answer. That's called "thinking". Look it up, Mr. President.

I'm really looking forward to getting to the domestic issues.

Also, hurray for Jon Stewart for going after Giuliani! New Yorkers are expected to be so reverent about him. Jon didn't let him get away with squat, and he looked about ready to get pretty indignant there at the end.
