    What a mess. But I'd still like to hear from the Kool-Aid drinkers.

    What happened?

    Well, the first problem I have is that not all of the candidates got a chance to answer all of the questions. I would have liked to have heard HRC explain how her daughter got her sex education ... and whether proper terminology was used in the process.

    too many people on stage to have a good debate. again, obama proves he's a useless orator when he's off the stump
  5. Really? I think Clinton is far worse than him. She won't answer ANYTHING (much like Bill). I read someone - David Maraniss maybe? - once say that Bill was the most frustrating interview subject he's ever had, and she's got to be the same way. Someone in the NY Times the other day expressed frustration that she wouldn't even answer a question about whether the debate field is too crowded at this point.

    Among the major candidates, Edwards comes off the best in this setting.

    I don't understand why Clinton and Obama are so averse to answering questions - Obama's ideas are so well articulated in "Audacity of Hope," as Hillary's are in "Living History."

    Giuliani would eat either for lunch right now if they take this wishy-washy tact into the general election debates. They better work on this between now and then, or risk blowing a major, major, major opportunity in history.

    it's worth scratching around to find Edwards' YouTube viddy called "Hair," with images juxtaposed with the song from the hippie musical. Quite clever.

    So the answer to the question, I guess, is, "here." Why is it that 90 percent of the "where is the political blah-blah-blah thread?" threads are started by jagoff righties on here?

    Rather than take offense -- I am, by nature, an anarchist -- I'll just say it's for the same reason 90 percent of the Ann Coulter/Rush Limbaugh/Dick Cheney threads are started by our loony lefty friends.

    I just figured such a momentous occasion, judging from the CNN hype, would have merited a thread.

    Maybe everybody was watching over at DailyKos instead.

    I thought the questions were pretty good. The candidates' videos were hit and miss. The serious one bombed while the humorous ones (Dodd, Richardson) scored. Hillary's was lame, she should have re-run her Sopranos takeoff.
    I would have had a candidate talk about their issues while dumping Mentos in a coke bottle.

    Damn, that's a good idea. I may run for governor.

    You've got my vote all locked up, so long as all your campaign ads are lolcats.
