Bush the debater 

Read James Fallow's latest in The Atlantic Monthly (unfortunately, the article is not online), about how the Bush/Kerry debates will go -- very interesting stuff, especially about Bush's skills as a debater, and how his side always manages expectations by promoting what a terrific debater the other guy is, and how terrible Bush is, to the extent that Bush gets himself declared "the winnah" just because he doesn't fall off the stage. In reality, Bush is an excellent debater, on message, clear, thinking on his feet, coming across as warm and responsive without actually responding, etc etc.
Apparently there will be four debates this year beginning September 30 in the University of Miami.
