    Get out the brooms, baby 

    The instant polls following Debate No. 3 were unanimous: Sen. John Kerry scored more points with viewers the domestic questions than did President Bush. ABC News had Kerry squeaking to a debate victory, 42 percent to 41 percent. CBS News had it 39 percent to 25 percent for Kerry, and, as reported previously, USA Today/CNN/Gallup had it 53 percent Kerry and 39 percent Bush. Over the three debates, Kerry scored a sweep, according the USA Today/CNN/Gallup numbers, with only the second debate - 47 percent, 45 percent Bush - being close. Whereas Kerry held steady throughout the debates, Bush took on the chameleon personna - smirker to tough guy to chuckler - that damaged Vice President Al Gore in 2000. Ohioblog reader Jane Neulieb observes that ``President Bush's behavior on camera seems whacky, tears easily, seems irritable, overly sensitive, can't stay still longer than two's something that can't be denied.'' Doubt her observations? Just check the replays.
