Late Night Observation

Unfortunately, I was only able to see the Democratic debate somewhat sporadically. I did notice, however, one fairly extended serious of answers related to Israel’s recent airstrike in Syria. This was a strange subject to be asking questions about — roughly, would Israel have the right to do something similar in Iran — given that as best I can tell neither Tim Russert nor you nor I nor any of the candidates actually know what happened.

The other things that caught my attention were John Edwards speaking eloquently about Iraq early in the debate, and Clinton pushing back against an inane ticking time-bomb scenario question.
