Kerry 3, Bush 0

Apparently under strict orders from his wife, President Bush stood up straight last night and avoided those dreaded scowls. He smiled, smiled, smiled, even giggled at times. It was his best performance. It was John Kerry’s worst. Kerry still won. He’s 3-0.
If you don’t believe us, check out the post-debate CNN/USA TODAY/Gallup snap poll, which showed Kerry winning 52 percent to 39 percent. That’s roughly the same margin Kerry enjoyed in the CNN survey coming out of Coral Gables, Florida, and we all know how that played out. (More on this below.)
It was a debate about guns, gays and God. It was about jobs, health care and flu vaccines. Tony Soprano even played a cameo role in a colloquy on taxes. But mostly it was a debate about women, whose unique interests were directly addressed by Bush and/or Kerry in response to at least 11 of moderator Bob Schieffer’s 20 excellent questions. – Kerry 3, Bush 0 – Oct 14, 2004
