Debate Predictions

Here are my predictions for tonight's Presidential Debate:

What will happen: It will be scripted down to the very last minute. There will be no surprises. Bush will use monosyllabic words in short easy-to-understand sentences. Kerry will blow this golden opportunity to finally say what really needs to be said.

What should happen: The memorized scripts should be thrown out the window. It should be an open debate. The questions should not be known ahead of time. We should be allowed to see reaction shots of the candidates (we won't.) Bush's handlers should let him use his own ideas to put together sentences (which would be a lot of fun.) Kerry should remember back to the person he was when he came back from Vietnam. He should let that angry young man out to list the sins of Bush & Co.

More to come....
