Watching Clinton on Letterman.

We were just watching part of the TiVoed Clinton-on-Letterman show.

I comment on what an attractive character Clinton is--his flowing speech, his easy demeanor, his warmth.

John says imagine if Kerry had all the same policies and qualifications, but spoke and acted like Clinton, don't you think he would win easily?

I say yes, but the same is true of Bush: if Bush had all of Clinton's physical presentation, and kept his own policies and achievements, Bush would easily beat Kerry.

John says it would be fairest if both of them could have the Clinton presentation so that we could then judge them on their real merit.

I say, yeah, it would be like blind grading.
