Apparently under strict orders from his wife, President Bush stood up straight last night and avoided those dreaded scowls. He smiled, smiled, smiled, even giggled at times. It was his best performance. It was John Kerry's worst. Kerry still won. He's 3-0.
Searching for some of that Wisconsin magic John Kerry found before last week's debate, President Bush heads to Badgerland today to prep for tomorrow's Missouri Mow-Down. It's the president's fourth visit in as many days to a Gore state. (Message: confidence.)
The nation will pause briefly tomorrow in somber remembrance of 9/11. But with just 53 days remaining before Election Day, the pause won't last long. And that's not a bad thing, as it reflects this country's admirable ability to move on.

We were worried yesterday that we'd gone too far in our reporting on Teresa Heinz "Shove it!" Kerry.

Someone smarter or richer than me will decide which story dominates this weekend's headlines. At this early read, it's anyone's guess. The main players, possibly in order of prominence, are: Bill Clinton, President Bush, John McCain and John Kerry -- who could shoot to the top of the list if he so much as winks at one of his VP contenders.
John Kerry the Fisherman was overshadowed by John Kerry the Soldier yesterday, as release of his military records clouded his message on the environment. (For a moment, though, the two images collided as Kerry noted, somewhat curiously, that a Louisiana waterway reminded him of the Mekong Delta).
Once again, deadly violence in Iraq threatens to wipe out any major coverage of the '04 campaign events, which today include President Bush's 1 p.m. ET speech to newspaper editors at Washington's Omni Shoreham Hotel, new TV ads by John Kerry and the release of Kerry's military records.
