Debate Behindblogging

Um…forgot this debate was happening until a quarter to ten. I hear there’s been a lot of rough stuff out there so far. The two minutes I’ve watched thus far involve Barack Obama seeming fairly cogent.

UPDATE: I don’t like John Edwards’ defeatism talking about taking on John McCain. Don’t give up hope for Mitt Romney!

UPDATE II: Glad to see Barack Obama taking HRC on on her claim that her record of backing catastrophic invasions of Iraq makes her uniquely qualified to battle Republicans on national security issues.

UPDATE III: I think Wolf Blitzer’s question about who Martin Luther King would endorse if he were alive today is possibly a new low for inane debate questions. It almost makes me feel bad I ever spoke ill of Tim Russert.
