Iowanian makes a good point. I was watching a break down of Bush and Kerry's styles on tv last night and one thing they mentioned was that Bush tends to give short answers. They played a clip of him in his debate against Ann Richards where they were asked a question and Bush just gave a very quick response. Richards then proceeded to answer in essay form for the next two minutes. When it got back to Bush he made the sly remark that he should have spent more time on his answer.
Anyone who is just handing this debate to Kerry is a dope. Anyone who continues to think Bush is a dolt is a tool.
