"Osama bin Laden attacked us"
The debate was painful to watch for Bush's performance--in an area that should have been his strongest--talking about a world that is of his making. Kerry was remarkable for his clarity and demeanor.

Perhaps Holt does not realize that the only country that has any leverage over North Korea is China--do we need to empower Beijing more, or is it enough to have China finance our debt?
