High school debaters judge the debate...

I was thinking last night that it would be interesting to watch the debate with a panel of judges, scoring it like high school and college debate competitions are scored.

Apparently the Mercury News thought the same sort of thing, but early enough to plan something.

The results aren't surprising.

Bush gets points for conversational style. Kerry gets points for everything else. Unfortunately the web version of the article doesn't include the scoring table, or you could see how Kerry was rated sub-par on eye contact, and Bush was rated sub-par on organization, composure and introducing new ideas.
