The debate is on. Kerry is doing well, I think—he looks like a grownup, while Bush comes off as a petulant child. But Bush hasn't made any egregious mistakes from a political perspective (he's made innumerable mistakes of logic and judgment, of course). Ew, they're joking about Yale. Bush repeats the same simplistic notions over and over; Kerry makes actual arguments. Will this swing any voters? I'm no longer sure I believe swing voters exist as a force. What Kerry needs to do is rouse his demoralized base, and I think this performance has the potential to do that.

Bush: "I just know how this world works." Yeah, George, 'Course you do. I hope Laura has some cookies and milk waiting for you when you get home.
