The Debate -- analysis

September 30, 2004 7:34 PM

Bush did well with his base, but Kerry clearly won the middle. Image-wise, Kerry looked far more presidential and composed.

:95 Even Bill Kristol is grudgingly admitting that Kerry did very well in FNC's post-show analysis.

:97 Yes indeed. Kerry kicked ass.

:98 Mort Kondracke: Bush looked tired and annoyed.

:118 Fred Barnes: "Kerry looked like the Commander in Chief" -- AMEN!

:125 Hysterical! Karen Hughes and Sean Hannity are furiously trying to spin this for Bush. It looks like Karen's head is going to explode.
