Tonight's debate: I'll be at work tonight as the debate occurs, so there will be no live-blogging of it here. For those of you who are early risers on the East Coast or insomniacs on the West, I'll have some comments in the wee hours of the morning.
Some thoughts on what to look for:
For President Bush, can he translate the foreign policy and defense themes from the GOP convention into solid arguments to combat John Kerry's naysaying?
For John Kerry, it is simple. Can he outline a coherent foreign policy? If this is any indication, he's in trouble.
On a related note: Kudos to the news organizations' refusal to agree to the negotiated rules by the campaigns that "banned" candidate reaction shots, etc.
