I thought that the debate was much closer this time -- while Kerry kicked ass last week, Bush was able to hold his own and keep on message the way he historically has. I felt Kerry looked a bit more presidential, and that Bush kept saying the same things, but it wasn't a cakewalk. Kerry scored a few shots - one of my favorite lines was when he said that he did something the president did not know how to do -- balance the budget.
I have to think that Bush not admitting any mistakes looks really bad. It really seems obvious to me who to vote for when you look at the two men standing side by side together. Oh well, I guess that's why it's democracy.
