Dodd's Talk Clock and other debate post-mortem

Let's hope Leslie Blitzer dominates the discussion again tomorrow night, because nobody realllly wants to hear the GOP candidates that much.

*snorts, wakes up, looks around*

If Dodd had been more direct about answering the questions he was asked he might have had an even shorter bar. So he stalled.

Biden screamed "Dead! I want him dead! I want his family! Dead!" and appears to have lifted his standing among conservative Democrats who also discovered they like war and tighter bankruptcy provisions and all the other corporate bullshit Joe Biden represents.

According to the Republican pundits on CNN (I'm looking at you, James Carville), Hillary scored points by shooting down the hypotheticals, causing the other candidates to "look to her for leadership". CNN doesn't disclose that Carville is paid for by the Clinton campaign.

Mike Gravel yelled at the kids to get off his lawn, turned ball bearings over in one hand, and mumbled something about stolen strawberries.

Richardson has a Heroes Card and is a pro-growth Democrat.

Kooch, Edwards and Obama answered the questions intelligently and articulately and collectively earned a win; Hillary won by not fumbling anything. Nobody got in anything more than a subtle dig.
