I watched part of the CNN/You Tube democratic debate last night. The candidates seemed, to me at least, that this new (I mean, this is sorta historic, you know) medium worked for some and didn’t for other.
I loved when someone would ask a question and they (Joe Biden) would tell what he had done and how groovy he was.
And, although I’ve never been a big Hillary Clinton fan but she came off looking rather good (I’ll give credit where I think it’s deserved.)
But Chris Dodd said something that I thought was rather telling. When a health care question came up, and it appeared that the front runners were going to be the only ones, he very aggressively ask to have time too. I didn’t blame him for that in the least.
Bill Richardson came off okay. Now, for the pundits, I heard about
three four different opinions:
1. Hillary came off looking presidential.
2. Obama came off looking presidential.
3. Bill Richardson is jockeying for vice president.
4. Mike Gravel appeared a bit cranky.
With all of this said, no one has my support at this point. And, if Fred Thompson runs, because I live in the state of Tennessee, will my vote really matter on election day?
