From the Boston Globe:

In the end, it all came down to whether you bought Bush’s image of steadfast resolve in the face of a dangerous enemy or Kerry’s point that certainty may be fine, but certainty can also be wrong and wrong certainty “can get you into trouble.” Presidential debates can be more about which man is more likable and trustworthy, and last night Kerry seemed tight and drawn compared to the more relaxed Bush. There was very little humor, and less warmth until Bush mentioned how nice Kerry’s daughters had been to his girls.

I believe Senator Kerry’s position on all the issues — Iran, Iraq, North Korea, and the Sudan — were superior to President Bush’s, but my guess is that Bush came across as the strong leader he meant to project, and that Kerry did not manage to seriously dent his armor.

Kerry needed to punch through the armor and have the barb lodge deep.
