Bush reaching for the glass...(bottle?)
Was this a typical Alcoholic reaction to stress? Reach for the glass...probably didn't give him what he was looking for...

1. Something was definitely wrong. The glass he kept reaching for was empty

3. slurring an awful lot too
I think he'd already hit the bottle. He was slurring an awful lot of his words.

4. So you noticed that, too???
I noticed that once he had an empty glass, put it back, pulled out another and he seemed shocked at the contents!! I also noticed the way he put his mouth on the glass - reminded me of someone who is drinking straight bourbon and expecting a "bite" when it hits the tongue. He seemed shocked that there was no "bite".

5. It was empty 5 times
There must have been several glasses under there.
I watch on C Span and don't remember Kerry taking one drink!

6. I was wondering if anyone else noticed this
I wondered if he used the old alcoholic's trick of filling the water glass with vodka or gin. I don't suppose he could actually get away with it but he sure kept grabbing it. And he was pretty incoherent.

Oh, yeah, he's always incoherent........
