Democratic Debate

I caught about half of the debate last night.

Here are some quick thoughts:

Hillary is going to surprise a lot of people who have not seen her live. She is now quite comfortable as a public speaker. She handled the tough questions with an ease that speaks well of her ability to handle the smears that will come her way if she gets the nomination.

Joe "Foxholes" Biden also sounded better than I've ever heard him sound. That he bought into the President's line that you only support the troops is by funding them is a bit disturbing. Couldn't Congress have done a separate bill to get the military Hum-Vees with V-shaped hulls that is not tied to Iraq War funding? Of course.

Wolf was a jerk in how he manipulated the debate so that the leading candidates got a lot more time than others. My DD has a great breakdown on this.


  • Rep. William Jefferson, D-La., was indicted Monday on federal charges of racketeering, soliciting bribes and money-laundering in a long-running bribery investigation into business deals he tried to broker in Africa.
