Never Enough Strong Finishes Department
The Gadflyer has a beautiful discussion of how Kerry should handle tonight's debate. I'm sure Kerry is drowning in advice, but I agree with the essence of this article--Kerry needs to point out early and often that Bush will lie about Kerry's positions. (And frankly, at this juncture, let's just call them "lies" and not try to be sensitive. We all know Bush is lying, and to hear Kerry call them "lies" will strengthen his position considerably.)
Once Kerry has established that Bush is full of lies, then Kerry will be in great shape to tell America not just that he won't mislead, but how he intends to lead.
