IN THE THIRD AND FINAL DEBATE, JOHN KERRY SCORED WITH THE GROUP with which he most needed to connect: women.
I watched the debates with 150 students at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland — hosted by the College Republicans here. The place cleared out so quickly after the debate that it was clear that most were not wildly inspired by the Bush-Kerry exchange, not enough to talk about it for a few more hours anyway.
But I thought the debate was a pretty remarkable exchange of contrasting views, particularly on the importance of what type of justices may next be appointed to the Supreme Court.
My UPI analysis of the last debate is here. I’ll offer more commentary later today.
