The first debate

My lovely wife and I went to a neighbor's house to watch the first presidential debate between Bush and Kerry. It seemed clear to us that Kerry won the debate, and would be a better president. The president's excuses, empty slogans and trick attempts to miscast what Kerry stands for seemed weaker each time he repeated them.

And the polls the next day confirm our impression, with Gallup finding 53% believing Kerry won versus 37% for Bush. Let's hope that carries over to the ballot box.

At least one translatlantic friend has sadly said that Bush will win in 2004. But don't count out the erratic wisdom American people just yet.
