BUSH vs. BUSH....Ever since I read James Fallows' Atlantic article comparing George Bush's 1994 debating skills with his debating skills today, I've wanted to see a videotape of his 1994 debate. Is the difference really as vivid as Fallows says it is?

Here's the answer: a video showing clips of his 1994 performance compared to a typical performance today. The last time I tried to view it, the server was overwhelmed with requests and I couldn't get to it, but it seems to be back up now. (You'll need QuickTime to view it.)

Go take a look. Bush's clear and lucid speaking style from ten years ago really is a remarkable sight to those of us who saw him for the first time in 2000. I can't explain the change, but there's sure as heck something going on....
