How to debate George Bush

Al Gore (who speaks with some authority on the subject) says John Kerry should prepare for the toughest debates of his career. He says that even though Bush has made "lowering expectations" into a high art form, it would be a mistake to go into the debates with low expectations of an incumbent president.

"The debates aren't a time for rhetorical tricks. It's a time for an honest contest of ideas. Mr. Bush's unwillingness to admit any mistakes may score him style points. But it makes hiring him for four more years too dangerous a risk. Stubbornness is not strength; and Mr. Kerry must show voters that there is a distinction between the two."
