Interesting commentary:
www.realclearpolitics.com/commentary.html


Kerry is going to have to go for broke Thursday night, and his game plan has got to be about one thing and one thing only: making the President look as bad as possible. Winning the debate on debating points, or on this issue or that point simply isn't going to cut it. Kerry has got to figure out a way to have more people disliking President Bush at the end of the debate than before it started.

If I were the Kerry people, I would focus on two clips of video. The first is Bush's debate with McCain in 2000 where McCain's dressing down and interruptions caused Bush to visibly lose his cool. Kerry should take the tactic of Tom Cruise in "A Few Good Men" and try and goad President Bush into losing his temper. The only way Kerry can win this debate, is to make President Bush lose it.

Obviously this is an extremely high risk strategy. It is also quite likely that this type of tactic will backfire and leave John Kerry looking like a complete jerk, instead of the President. But Kerry is in so much trouble right now that if he truly wants to be President he has to roll the dice, play to win, and forget about the possible consequences.

Never heard of the website, but I like the article. I think Kerry would end up looking like the ass that he is.

It backfired on Al Gore when he was caught rolling his eyes and making faces as Bush spoke during a debate in the last election. It made him look immature.

I have an idea for Bush though. He should bring in one of those rubber sandals called flip/flops. Place them on top of his podium. As Kerry speaks, Bush should slowly turn them over every so often.

Bingo!
