    I'm glad it's not here. Enough uninformed people vote as it is.

    > Like CNN doesn't have BS addons.

    I didn't watch it on CNN. I watched it on CSPAN.

    I'm listening to this debate for the first time right now (had no TV on Thurs). I'm only 45 min in, and I'm extremely tired of hearing "If I were to say this is the wrong war at the wrong place."

    Bush is just repeating himself - and attacking Bush as he does it.

    it will not make a difference if either bush or kerry wins.
    damage has been done to iraq. and kerry said he would deal with terrorism "more effectively"....

    Well Bush didn't do as bad as people say, they just saw his facial expression and his slocuhed body on the podium and thought kerry did well. I don't really think kerry blew bush out of the water, i just think people thought bush did poorly, so kerry must have one.

    I agree Kerry didn't blow bush away, but he did stop Bush. Recently Bush had been starting to pull away, and one NPR analyst pointed out that Kerry may have managed to throw some water back into the mixture and keep things fluid.

    It will be interesting to see how the town hall debate goes. Plus the domestic one - that's the one that I really care about...

    I've been doing that for four years now. Hell, I put on my glasses with windshield wipers whenever I see Shrub on the TV.

    One TV comedy show is showing footage of people saying stupid things and reminding us they HAVE to vote.

    >>It will be interesting to see how the town hall debate goes.

    Thats the one where the candidates already have the 'script'? (the questions to be asked by 'average' voters)


    We are voting next Saturday. I think Howard was worried GWB would loose and so chose to go first. (the PM picks the date of the elections in Australia)

    Seems like that could be abused. Is it ever?

    only by politicians.

    this election was timed to miss the two football grand finals, miss the olympics, before the US elections, before the predicted interest rate rise, take advantage of the oppositions new leader, after the $600 bonus per child was received and with an eye on the polls.


    If your interested try a google for Tampa and 'children overboard'.

    I think bush will do good in the next debates, because he has the ability to destroy kerry, so many missed oppurtunities at the foreign policy debate. he just needs to be himself and think a little more. i am sure his advisors have told him this.
