Young Democrats open thread - who won the debate last night?
Hopefully y'all managed to catch the debate last night (if you wussed out, you can get something resembling a recap from Blog for Democracy). CNN seems to be leaning towards Biden as the strongest performer - and I have to agree, I thought Biden was (with only a couple of exceptions) excellent. I think Obama "won" in the sense that he did the most to keep on his message, but I also thought Edwards had a good performance. Hillary Clinton played it really safe and politically correct, which was probably what she was going for, but I wasn't impressed. Bill Richardson was much worse than he should have been - he just wasn't good at all, which is sad given his resume, and I thought the idea of boycotting the Olympics to pressure China was really silly.
What do YOU think? Who won the Pretzel Award? Are you sick of Dennis Kucinich yet? Is Chris Dodd that boring in real life? Are you closer or further away from deciding on a candidate for 2008? Did you groan out loud when they started talking about a draft?
