My final debate scorecard is posted.
For these debates, I scored each round as it happened and didn't look at the final tally until afterwards. Last, as the debate was in progress, I thought that it was a pretty even fight. But when I went through and counted up the scores, I was shocked to find that Bush had been dominant.
What I suspect that means is that Bush's win won't be fully appreciated for another day or two. So watch and see where the conventional wisdom coalesces over the next 48 hours.
