Debate Roundup

From all acounts W won this round of the debates just by not messing up and seeming lots more personable than Kerry.

Kerry on the other hand made a number of mistakes that are going to come back and bit him. Not the least of which was his dragging Dick Cheney's daughter through the mud.

He also drove a lot of Catholic voters to Bush's camp with his dance around the abortion issues.

Hugh has a great roundup of blog reactions as well as his unique boxer style score card. Check him out.

Since there were no cluster bombs last night other than the Mary Cheney deal, I don't think this is going to be an election deciding event. However I do think that because of the way Bush came off he has effectively killed any momentum that John Kerry had. The thing people will remember is Bush's personality. Kerry may be a better debater than Bush(like that's hard), but he can't debate Osama bin Laden, or Saddam. And I don't care what you say no nation in the world would buddy up to that man.
