      Live in person, he was pretty sensational. And his ideas were mostly inspiring. I'm so glad he's in the Senate where he has almost constantly been in the forefront of every progressive cause whether it's expanding children's health care or denying telecom immunity. I got so sick of the phony media narrative about how stiff, condescending and long-winded Kerry was. Funny they never had a "far and balanced" narrative about how smug and smirky and addled Gee Dubya was. He was embarassing to watch in that first debate. Which reminds me, given that McCain is reading so much of his material (even in the townhall meeting I was at with him, where he merely delivered a five-minute speech he'd given several times that week), I wonder if he'll be wired like Bush lest he make a really ass of himself.
