the debate only solidified what seems to be becoming more and more clear: this is going to be an election of the lesser of two evils. kerry flip-flopped b/c he has so many diff. people he needs to please: democrats, women, minorities, suburbia, veterans, swing voters. he spends so much time trying to address individual issues that in this soundbyte fueled "debate" (which was more like speech making), his points were hardly memorable. unfortunately, bush doesn't have the capacity to address said issues, and simply repeated his message over and over: kerry is a flip flopper. i hope the next debate brings something real to the table instead of dancing around the issues people want to know about.
