Dabate on the Debate Round One: Coral Gables, FL.

Does anyone have an opinion on this Debate? What do you think of the build up? Is it 'make or break'? What do you think of the way it was organized? Are there too many rules? Is our guy going to show his stuff and trounce Bush? What does it all mean?

If you've got an opinion, please leave your comment here!

I don't know. Am i the only people who thinks the debate is being hyped to the heavens? I just don't think there's a lot of wiggle room for the event to take on the characteristics of a real debate.

Why do I have the feeling that in a world of 'he-said-she-said' journalism, that the verdict on the thing will be inconclusive at best. Unless Kerry hits one out of the ballpark, the media universally will say that he failed at whatever he was expected to do (expected by the media to do in any case). Problem is, the structure of the thing makes it virtually impossible to hit the ball one way or another.

This isn't whining by the way. I think Kerry's going to win whether he does well at this debate or not. I think Kerry's going to win despite weeks of bad press -- and crooked polls.

Anyway, that's the context that i'll be watching the thing -- at Frankie Z's by the way!

And yeah, I know it's 'Debate on the Debate' -- only the way Blogger does URLs for posts, if I change it, the tinyurl won't work.

As loquacious as Kerry seems to be, isn't it really surprising how everyone has been lining up to put words in his mouth? What does that convey? But aside from that, I am new at blogging and what I would really appreciate from you is how you manage to create paragraphs. For the life of me I have not yet figured it out.

Boy, oh boy, that was just so great. Especially in the beginning when Kerry really laid it on the line using expressions and points that the entire media for four long years has been too chicken to use. That was it! He said it all.

I wasn't expecting much. This was beyond all expectations. Kerry floored Bush. I don't care how the media will spin this. Kerry floored Bush.

I'll have picture up from Frankie Z's in a day or two -- unbelieveable event that as well.
