Debate!

Perhaps now there is hope in the world. President Bush looks like a loser once again. When you as an incumbent are forced to ignore the past four years in favor of attacking the opponent, that is a losing formula. That's exactly what Bush did. He was more clever than I expected, interpreting the nuanced language Kerry at times used to his own argumentative turns, but where was his core? "It's hard work," he said a few times in reference to the troops he sent to Iraq. Are American soldiers there to settle a feud of sorts? Saddam, Saddam, Saddam. Honestly, the old policy since 1998 was containing Hussein while keeping the country from deteriorating into civil war. Now it's chaos, death, and the comeuppance of nuclear Iran. This is not the democratic beacon we bet all of our chips on. (It does not take a genius to realize that Iraq will not have as much effect on its region whether it's a democracy or not--the realities of geopolitics go far, far beyond sentimental praises of "freedom and democracy."

But Kerry represented himself well, and, well, senatorally. This compared to Bush's accusations. Since when do sitting presidents feel the need to discredit their challengers without any other substantial arguments?

Well, I'm thinking of voting for Jesus. Well, Him or Caesar.
