EDITORIAL SUBSTANCE OVER STYLE.

THIS is how it works: First, President George W. Bush and Sen. John Kerry spar over issues during tonight's televised presidential debate.

Then, the real show begins - the spin fest wherein the various pundits vie to name a debate winner based on style, zippy one-liners and their own political persuasion.

Viewers should take heed of what they have to say, but the most important thing is to listen closely and decide for themselves which candidate holds views that make sense, and who comes across as the kind of person who can deliver on his promises.

A lot is at stake in this election, and open-minded voters who make their decision based on the candidates and where they stand should determine the winner.
