    Obama seemed particularly irritated at the former president, whom he accused in absentia of uttering a series of distortions to aid his wife's presidential effort.

    "I'm here. He's not," she snapped.

    "Well, I can't tell who I'm running against sometimes," Obama countered.

    Don't worry Mr Obama... the country couldn't tell which one of them was running (ruining) the country when her husband was president!!!

    What does that have to do with Obama being President?

    That was the most entertaining debate I have ever watched. :)

    It's too bad the Republican candidates(other than Ron Paul and Alan Keyes) don't show that kind of passion.

    It was a silly display of immaturity on the part of both of them. Was that a Presidential debate or a kindergarten sandbox fight? Neither one of them deserve to be President of the United States. Anyone who votes for those two children should be ashamed.

    Anyone who votes for a Republican other than Ron Paul or Fred Thompson should be ashamed.

    Ken, you're half right. Now that Fred's out.....you're all wrong :laugh:
    While I disagree with Ken, I don't know that I'd call them petulant (see some of Ron Paul's provocations and his subsequent reactions, or some of Rudy's smirks) but I wouldn't call them passionate. Hillary is in a real contest. Obama has run headlong into the Clinton machine and both are boiling. I agree that it was entertaining. But Edwards was right....sort of. The hystrionics masqueraded the fact that neither have a palatable plan for solving the issues that face our country.

    Last night proved that Wolf Blitzer cannot run a debate. Neither can Anderson Cooper. I wonder how Wolf would've responded if Romney and Rudy had gone after each other like that?

    I miss Alan Keyes. He seems passionate about ordering a Big Mac. I love his oratorical skills.

    I disagree. I am willing to give either Clinton or Obama a listen this fall in the race against McCain.

    Considering the way that blacks and women have been treated politically in the history of these United States I am very intrigued by the idea of the first woman or the first black person being elected president.
