Body talk was louder during debates than rivals' words

By Mimi Hall, USA TODAY
The homework for Professor Jane Elmes-Crahall's Communications 101 class Wednesday was to watch the presidential debate on mute. When the Wilkes University students reported back to their teacher on Thursday, they had some strong opinions about what they'd seen.
And they were all about Bush.

Rolling eyes, a crooked smile, a general lack of composure. Not very presidential.

"Facially, they thought George Bush looked almost like a cartoon character," Elmes-Crahall said. The students thought Bush looked as if he could be "provoked to anger quickly" and "like he was ready to pounce."
