Friday, April 02, 2004 - Kerry camp challenges Bush to debates - Apr 1, 2004: "Bush campaign spokesman Taylor Griffin told CNN Thursday, 'The Bush-Cheney campaign looks for a vigorous debate at the appropriate time. But John Kerry should finish the debate with himself first -- being on both sides of each issue.'"

This is a great sound byte, and the Bush team should keep repeating it as often as possible.
BUT, the longer Bush waits to accept Kerry's debate challenges, the more it will seem like he's got something to fear. They can drag this out at least a little while longer, but not too much.

I, for one, want to see some debates. When Kerry is forced to give his positions, what will happen? Or will he manage to dance around them without ever answering anything? I think it'll be interesting as well to see if W has gotten any better in front of the cameras.
