But Kerry smoked Bush last night. The President looked hesitant and unsure of himself. His answers were full of long pauses. He kept harping on Kerry's "Wrong War. Wrong Time." not as a touchstone, but as something he could come back to if he lost his train of thought.

Kerry closed the gap. This was Bush's best shot to put him away, and he failed.
