LISTEN, DON'T WATCH

Want to figure out who "won" the debate tonight?

Listen, don't watch.

I've read a number of comments regarding the first Bush/Kerry debate and the Cheney/Edwards debate that said those who heard it on radio or read a transcript were more likely to say Bush and Cheney won.

That reminded me of the first Presidential debate -- Nixon v. Kennedy. In a poll taken later, those who heard it on the radio thought Nixon won convincingly. those who saw it on TV thought Kennedy won.

Style. Substance.

You decide.
