Solid base

I’ve heard already twice, listening to the post-debate spin, that Republicans were relieved by Bush’s performance during this debate. That’s telling. It’s not the Republicans Bush needed to relieve; he needed to relieve the undecided voters. I think Bush did a great job of making his base happy, but he simply can’t win unless he can get the same moderate voters who liked compassionate conservatism four yeas ago.
