  • YouTube Democratic Debate Winner?

    Please keep it civil. I'd like to hear about some good ideas and keep the mud slinging out of this thread.

    Stay nude!

    I thought Obame was the more 'Presidential' looking candidate out there tonight by his precise answers. He scored some very high marks on several answers, as did Senator Biden. But Obama was more precise and held his composure better than anyone else.

    Hillary had some good moments, but she had some 'flat' spots that lost the audience a lot of times. Her speaking abilities were great, but her message was being held back.

      I just voted for Dennis Kucinich since he said so many things that needed to be said; including funding the war only for the safe return of the troops not for continued disaster in Iraq. Unfortunately, Kucinich isn't electable.

      In the debate and in recent weeks I believe that Hillary Clinton has really come into her own. She has finally taken on the neo-cons and is pounding back at their accusations that by not agreeing with Bush on the war you are unpatriotic. They want to eliminate healthy discussion by calling it "aiding the enemy." In truth, not only is discussion a right of democracy; it is also part of the responsibility of a democracy!

        I watched the entire debate and loved the format used. I think Hillary did quite well, but it should also be noted in my opinion Obama, Edwards did well also. Biden make a strong effort to show his experience and tuffness but fell just short of the top three. Gravel, at least to me came across as too angry to be trusted in such a high office and Kucinich came across as just trying to say what he flt Amerixca wanted to hear. It must be said that as a registered REPUBLUICAN! I feel the Democrats have put up better candidates than the Republican have so far, it is VERY, VERY EARLY though and anyuthing could change. I also feel that a Clinton/Obama or Obama/ Clinton ticket could be hard to beat. HG

          KOS straw vote has it Edwards and Obama 2 and Clinton 3. Not surprising since Edwards is the only populist candidate in the race and KOS mostly draws progressives.

          Establishment media rendered its usual sour grapes reports.

            Hillary clearly had command and left no question why she is leading the polls. She has come a long ways in overcoming early flaws. She seemed to hold her own on Monday night. Though some of her best lines have been expressed before, she remains a quick thinker and tough as nails. I would vote for Dennis Kucinich if he really had a chance because he fealessly tells the truth, but it's Hillary's nomination to lose.

              I didn't watch the debates but I do hope that Hillary is elected as president of the U.S. Women are so much smarter and diplomatic (which is why England is ruled by a queen) than us barburic ignorant p...ywhipped men. I am saddened by the fact that 9/11 and the Iraq war became the Bush, Desert Storm II instead of the Al Gore what the F.... am I doing here war.
              Hopefully she can put an end to this and bring our troops home before we all end up speaking aribic and praying to Alla

                AP Reports according to observed & wired focus group that responses indicate Edwards won the the debate.

                Some signals today that establishment polls are catching up with KOS and that Edwards is "moving on up" despite the Republican Corporate media's attempt to marginalize him by characterizing Senator Clinton as the default victor.

                And here's Edward's response to the haircut flap!

                  The Queen primarily has a ceremonial role to play. The head of government is the Prime Minister.

                    Ever notice that the newzhawks who go on about Edward's $400 haircuts never mention Mitt Romney's $300 makeup consultations or George Bush's 10 thousand dollar suits?

                    Damn that liberal media bias - Edwards gets all that free media attention while they ignore the Republicans.

                      I think maybe sunfisher was saying that Tony Blair was a queen. Which is not true - he's a poodle.

                      Technically Britain is 'ruled' by the Sovereign, which is the head of state - Queen Elizabeth, but "governed" by the head of government - PM Gordon Brown.

                        Edwards continues to lead polls in Iowa. Pollster Peter Hart on the 16th releases results of a recent poll of Iowa Democrats putting Edwards on top with 30%. Clinton was at 22% and Obama was at 18%.

                        Edwards can beat anyone the Republicans care to throw under the bus. With Edwards, I could turn Texas purple and places like Missouri from purple to dark blue!

                        Bring it on, we're getting pumped!

                          I could buy Edwards but I would want Richardson to be the VP. HE has energy experience and is trusted diplomatically more than anyone else.

                            Edwards is currently the strongest candidate against any of the Republicans, but the media is determined to downplay and marginalize him. As always FOX Newz is the worst, but even the 'mainstream' media seems determined to squash his campaign.

                            We've remarked before about the media obsession with Edward's $400 haircuts while ignoring Bush's $10,000 Italian suits or Romney's expensive 'makeup tests' (they gush about Romney's 'movie star' looks but belittle Edwards as a 'Breck Girl'.) Add to that their genuine surprise that a self-made millionaire lives in a large country mansion - yet their complete disinterest in the mansions of other millionaire candidates and politicians (half of all Senators are millionaires).

                            No, what bothers the media, or more properly the corporate masters of the media, is that Edwards is an economic populist who cares about and lectures about the poor, one who takes on the entitled and holds wealthy corporate offenders to account. They are OK with rich politicians who care about the rich, but one who is genuinely concerned, and has a solid history of helping the poor scares the crap out of them. Their problem with Edwards is not that he is rich, it is that he is too smart and too right. See Are Media Out to Get John Edwards?

                            The last candidate that scared the media overlords this much was Howard Dean: YeeeeeArrrrghhh!
