President Bush and Senator John Kerry are back on the campaign trail after tackling some tough voter questions in last night's debate in St. Louis.
Kerry brought the momentum of improving poll numbers after his first debate performance, while Bush brought the energy of his stump speech as he looked to regain his footing in round two.
But debate watchers generally agree that neither candidate has changed any minds yet.
Susan Roberts is in Washington this morning and joins us now with more from last night's face- off.

KERRY SOT: 21:04:41 the president didn't find weapons of mass

destruction in Iraq, so he's really turned his campaign into a weapon of mass deception
BUSH SOT: 21:07:23 I don't see how you can lead this country in a time

of war, in a time of uncertainty, if you change your mind because of politics.
THIS WEEKS C-I-A REPORT CONCLUDING SADDAM HUSSEIN DID NOT HAVE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION WHEN THE U-S INVADED.. FORCED THE PRESIDENT TO PLAY DEFENSE.

BUSH SOT: 21:13:03 Saddam Hussein was a threat because he could have

given weapons of mass destruction to terrorist enemies. Sanctions were not working.
KERRY SOT: 21:13:31 if wed used smart diplomacy, we could have saved

200 billion dollars and an invasion of iraq and now osama bin laden might be in jail or dead thats the war against terror

Q: 21:54:29 Senator Kerry, would you give the American people your solemn pledge not to sign any legislation that will increase the tax burden on families earning less than $200,000
KERRY SOT:21:54:41 yes right into the camera yes I am not going to raise

taxes
PRESIDENT BUSH AND SENATOR KERRY HAD PLENTY OF FIGHT LEFT IN THEM FOR DOMESTIC ISSUES.. CLASHING ON HEALTH CARE, THE ENVIRONMENT, ABORTION AND MOST PROMINENTLY THE ECONOMY.

KERRY SOT: 21:51:51 the president was handed a $5.6 trillion surplus,

ladies and gentlemen. That's where he was when he came into office. We now have a $2.6 trillion deficit. This is the biggest turnaround in the history of the country.

BUSH SOT: 21:46:07 he's proposed $2.2 trillion in new spending, and he

says he going to tax the rich to close the tax gap. He can't. He's going to tax everybody here to fund his programs. That's just reality. ))

In fact, people began lining up two hours early to get one of the 300-available shots. The vaccine is being limited to those who are at a higher risk for developing complications from the flu. Various Kroger stores will be holding clinics around the region in the next few weeks, and demand is expected to remain high.

(("Friday Night Lights" (Universal Pictures) Review by: Joel Sink High school football is popular here in Virginia, but in Texas it's a religion! In rural Odessa, Texas high school football is more than a religion, it's everything. Billy Bob Thornton is Coach Gaines at Permian High School. The players who make up his team (too many to name each one) have a huge burden. They have to be the best. That means no less than winning the state championship. Derek Luke as Boobie Miles (can we say that here?) has natural talent, but arrogance and cockiness will be his downfall. Lucas Black as Mike Winchell stands out as the son of single mom (Connie Cooper) fighting to get a college scholarship. Don Billingsley played by Garrett Hedlund struggles with an abusive dad played by country music star, Tim McGraw. "Friday Night Lights" is based on a true story, so if you don't know how it turns out I shouldn't tell you any more. There are some good performances here, Billy Bob Thornton, Derek Luke, Lucas Black and Garrett Hedlund all do outstanding jobs in their roles. The script is based on a true story, so as long as the film makers are true to the facts and keep the pace moving, I can't fault it too much. I think if I had lived in Odessa in that time period, I'd have been on the first Trailways Bus out of there. The lengths that the townsfolk go to to make sure the coach knows that he HAS TO WIN was downright creepy. The degree to which the town worships this high school football team is almost too much. The movie does redeem this in a speech that Coach Gaines makes near the end of the film. He talks about being perfect. He explains that perfect means that a person can look in the eyes of their friends and loved ones and say I did my absolute best. In the end, it's not about winning, it's about being true to yourself and the people who matter in your life. "Friday Night Lights" isn't perfect, but it's still pretty darn good. Joel's take: 7 out of 10 Rated: PG-13 ))
