Wall Street Journal: Kerry's debate performance helped him in battlegrounds -- he now holds leads "albeit some of them razor-thin" in 13 battleground states, up from 11.

Washington Post: Bush looking bad this week as "one by one, official reports by government investigators, statements by former administration officials and internal CIA analyses have combined to undermine many of the central rationales of the administration's case for war with Iraq -- and its handling of the post-invasion occupation."

AP: An "extraordinary second rebuke" in six days for Tom DeLay from the House ethics committee.

San Francisco Chronicle: On the environment, conservation groups favor Kerry over Bush.

New York Times: "The suppression of minority votes has continued because it is perceived as a winning tactic, and because it is rarely punished."
