    During the debates he was doing a terrible job next to Kerry and the morning talk show dude Bill Hemmer says, "It was an even debate".

      One thing that still sticks with me to this day about the Kerry / Bush debates was how much taller and grander Senator Kerry looked than Bush.

      The media took care of that in the second podium debate by zooming in closer on Bush when showing the split screen shots so their heads were at the same height. Of course, it also made Bush's head look twice as big.

      I was so annoyed that they felt it was appropriate to distort their images in order to negate some perceived advantage to Senator Kerry.

      You know if it had been the reverse Chris Matthews would have spent his post debate time slobbering about how small Senator Kerry looked in comparison to the Presidential-looking Bush.
