The first presidential debate of the 2004 election season (excluding primary debates) will occur tonight at 9:00 Eastern time in Coral Gables, Florida.

The debate, between frontrunners George W. Bush (R) and John Kerry (D), will focus on foreign policy issues.

All citizens should watch this debate if at all possible. Even if you have already made your decision in this election, it is important to give each side a fair listen.

I’ll leave you a few comments on how I think each candidate did either late tonight or some time tomorrow.
