The difference is clear

I've been reading my fair share of post-debate spin this morning and I thought I'd share one that I thought hit the nail on the head.

Dan Balz, The Washington Post:

"Bush and Kerry differed on almost every aspect of the war in Iraq and on other major foreign policy issues such as North Korea and Iran. They disagreed over whether former president Saddam Hussein posed a serious threat to the United States at the time Bush took the country to war there. They disagreed on whether it was right to go to war as Bush did. They differed on whether the president has a plan to secure the peace. And they parted company on whether the certitude Bush has displayed as president has advanced U.S. security or weakened it."

If you missed the debate entirely or just want to see it again, here are some links.
