There were 90 minutes of hard debate last night, out of which if they edited out all of the repetition, it could have been a 30-minute show, with room for a few commercials. Bush focused on tearing down Kerry’s character. Kerry’s focused on policy details.
There were 24 questions 17 on Iraq, 4 on homeland security, 2 on general judgments, 1 on character.
After all, it seems that Kerry was the one to benefit out of it. Maybe that’s why Bush looked so funny close to the end of the talks.
