kerry vs. bush---round 1

i believe it was plato who said that for a person to be considered a good "rhetorician," they must possess both wisdom AND eloquence. when you have one without the other, you just seem to be missing something. tonight in the debates i felt like this was so true. bush had the wisdom, but little eloquence in his speech and his performance, and kerry had the eloquence down (and wow some of the rhetorical devices he used---he knows how to debate) but lacked much in the wisdom dept. granted, tonight doesn't change who i'm voting for, i would like to know why can't we just get someone in the white house who has both?
