Virtually every poll concerning the debate has declared Kerry the winner. New organizations are reporting that the polls indicate that Kerry won the debate.
This is the result of the DU spin, Kerry fought to a draw, but the post debate spin has gone to Kerry.
What this boils down to is:
Either get into the fight, or make sure you have everything you want to own by Janurary 20, 2005.
If Kerry wins, you can bet they are coming after us first. An Executive Order doesn't need to get past the Legislature.
Kerry won the debate nt because of the spin (although I'm sure it's nauseating), but rather because he looked better than Bush, despite a complete lack of substance.
Bush had better get his sh!t together for the next two. If he can slam the door on those (especially since they are NOT supposed to be hisstrong suit) then it won't matter how he did here.
ETA: Oh, and I hope that the dipsh!t running the Bush campaign will wake up to the fact that the candidate needs to be RESTED prior to a debate, not running all over a hurricane zone right before going into the hall!
