(Oh, snap! Itís on, now!)

Also, you praised Reagan in Brokawís book, as did your husband!

Edwards: I would like to talk at some point.

Blitzer: Iím sorry, there isnít time.

Clinton: You said Republicans had ideas.

Obama: Didnít say they were good ideas.

Clinton: By the way, last I checked, you were an attorney for a slum lord. Beyatch.

I still dont know who "won" but I sure enjoyed the Obama/Clinton catfight.

I think Senator Clinton showed just how much she is struggling with the "Campaign 2008". She shows obvious signs of arrogance towards Obama and for the rest of America by her demeanor and the way she answers. It is clear to me that if Hillary were to win, Bill not Hillary would be running the country. Hillary would be dubbed the rubber stamp president.

Obama represents the hopes and dreams of an America that has seems to have lost itself after nine eleven. There is no other time in America's history that we have fell behind other countries with regard to math, science, technology, domesitic stewardship, etc. Let's bring real change to DC and elect Obama for President. You won't regret it.

CW this morning is that Obama looked like the Clinton's have gotten under his skin and he looked a bit shell shocked by the battering and that taking on Bill is a bad idea for Super Tuesday.

The talking head political class was wrong about Obama's response to meeting with leaders of rogue states and have been wrong about his candidacy up until Iowa.

Clinton looked bad and shrill last night and unbecoming. The crowd was obviously pro-Obama, and while the talking heads might see through that, the majority of Americans will not. She got booed, she sounded unpresidential in some of her attacks, and she seemed angry.

Obama held out fine under the weight of attacks in the first half, and really looked great in the 2nd half... very presidential and he showed his best side.

Obama taking on Bill and Hill on their problem with the truth (with the 10th anniversary or Monica coming up) is a brilliant move... CW & the Talking Heads don't see it now, but it's going to play well and you can see it already.

Sorry, but none of them addressed the issues that are really important to me. Pantyhose or stockings . . . now there's the real dilemma.

Hillary was better at staying on her talking-points and not getting appearing on the defensive.

I liked Obama's slam about being sure which Clinton he is running against. If he wins this he deserves it, for he's not only fighting an opponant but the former president of his own party. Ouch.

Bush Sr. never put McCain or the other Republicans in that position back in '00 by stumping for his son.

Tammany Hill is certainly a competent civil servant. And she's about as inspiring, too. I just can't get past the lies she and her husband spew.

Hilarious take on it. Thanks for the link.

The best debate liveblogging EVER?

Can you have good liveblogging of a mediocre debate?

Or so-so liveblogging of a great debate?

Regardless of the liveblogging, what did you think about the debate itself, for us uninformed masses?

Great debate. Clinton and Obama both win. Clinton reminds pragmatists why they like her. Obama gets his knuckles bloodied. If he gets the nod, this stuff will make him better able to fight back against the Republicants. This is goodness for us.

Obama wins SC, Clinton wins FL, Clinton wins 2/3 of Super Tuesday, it's going all the way to the convention.

Just curious, ECB, that wasn't you riding your bike past Dan Savage's window this morning was it?
