I was annoyed with Bush too ... after the debate.
During a post-debate interview, he began to waffle in
a very awkward way, I thought. The question was, as I
recall, something like: "Would you approve of a
Confederate flag flying over the capital in Austin?"

Bush said "no" and then began to splutter. It was
embarassing. His first answer about that flag (South
Carolina's) was that it should be up to the people.
Seems to me that the same answer would work just fine
in Texas too.

BTW I think Keyes and Bauer had the best of it during
the debate. Bauer made Bush look inept over China
vis-a-vis Cuba respecting trade issues.
