Dem Debate

Filed under: Democrats,Elections — acepundit @ 7:15 pm

Did you watch the Democratic debate tonight? Me neither. I read some of transcripts and highlights and it looks like Senator Clinton might have pissed off a few supporters by saying “I believe we are safer than we were (before 9/11).” Contrast that with Obama who said “We live in a more dangerous world partly as a consequence of this president’s actions.” He aimed at John Edwards for voting for the Iraq War in 2002 despite later regretting his decision with, “”John, you’re about four and a half years late on leadership on this issue.”

Debates are ugly. I don’t think presidencies are ever won or lost by them, but they do give the candidates a chance to hate on each other.

EDIT:  And apparently debates allow candidates to look foolish.  According to NRO’s Kathryn Lopez at one point John Edwards said “I don’t know if I know what a rich person is.”
