Was it just me, or did Kerry completely kick ass in the debate? Wait, I watched it with Nina, and she thought Kerry kicked ass too. But who are we? Wait, I just called my Mom out on the farm in Iowa. She says Kerry kicked ass as well, and she can't understand how anyone could have watched the debate and felt different. "It was like he just kept saying the same three things over and over again, and other than that he didn't have anything to say."
I mean, if the two of them were the final contenders for CEO, and that was there performance on an interview about the strategic direction for the company, there would not even be a need for the board to discuss which of them was going to be offered the position.
I'm excited. Kerry did so much better than Gore did in any of the 2000 debates, and Bush seemed way worse. I made a vow about halfway through that I will not again complain about how Kerry was an unfortunate choice for the Democrats, blah-blah-blah.
I wish I had time to blog about this more, but I'm off to Iowa City at like 7:30 AM tomorrow and have a hundred things to do. Nina, incidentally, also made a pre-debate dinner for me, and, as usual, it was beyond delicious.
