    No thread on Clinton v. Obama XXI?

    I'm bracing for some fireworks ...

    Hillary has to be careful...if she keeps pounding Obama on this "elitist" crap, it's going to backfire on her.

    Obama is rebounding pretty good right now on it. He may be one of only two Democrats I vote for in November, but he's a good one.

    Here's my question. There's nothing wrong with a debate per se, if you live in Pennsylvania. But I don't. Why is this event on national TV. It's hardly what I call top-shelf entertainment, and as far as helping me, the concerned citizen, make an informed vote, it's too late, way too late. Massachusetts had its primary February 5.
    Something between two-thirds and three-quarters of the U.S. electorate lives where the primaries have already happened. Why are they showing a debate to them/us?

    Obama just looks flustered to me, well, compared to how smooth he usually operates. As far as the Bosnia issue with Clinton, I applaud her for owning up to her lie--and props for segueing that into talking about her level of experience.

    God, this is asinine. Rev. Wright, the Bosnia flap, now "why don't you wear a flag lapel pin?"
    How about some of the questions that actually matter?

    Owning up to her lie? She lied about it at least four times, and then denied reports that said she was full of shit. Then her husband said she just misremembered it once during a late-night stump speech. Notice that she only "owned up to it" when video was produced.

    Has there been any substance at all, yet?

    Any?

    In terms of issues? No. It's all gotcha bullshit.
