Drive-byI watched the 2nd presidential debate and will comment on that...hopefully before the next one on Wednesday, but you never know. Overall I'd call it a draw. If it was just about what they said, Kerry won. He's been all over Bush on the actual issues being discussed. On the other hand, Bush was firm in his answers and looked more confident than last time. If you say it with confidence, people will believe you right? He also interacts well with people. For some, that aspect of his presentation endears him to them, hence the draw.
I've also received my absentee ballot for the US election. Looking forward to exercising my right to vote soon. Not that it did me any good in Australia two days ago ... sigh. Till next time.
Update: I forgot to include this link to an article by Dwight Eisenhower's son, a Republican, about why he'll be voting for Kerry. Thanks to Doonesbury for that (You can link to them from the left if you so desire).
Update 2: The link above would have taken you to The Union Leader website to see that article. The site crashed due to to excessive traffic.
