Clinton Still Talking Up Her Debate Plan

By Perry Bacon Jr.
WILMINGTON, N.C. -- Barack Obama has been pretty clear that he doesn't intend to debate Hillary Clinton again before May 6 votes in North Carolina and Indiana. But Hillary Clinton is not taking no for an answer.

"How about this: No moderators, just the two of us on a stage, 90 minutes asking each other questions, talking about whatever is on our minds, just like the Lincoln-Douglas debates," Hillary Clinton told a crowd of more than a thousand on the riverfront here Sunday night. "We can even do it on the back of a flat-bed truck. It doesn't even have to be in some fancy studio."

Clinton, starting a three-day tour of North Carolina, was repeating a theme her campaign aides and even her husband are echoing in Indiana, Oregon and every state with an upcoming primary: Obama needs to participate in a debate with his Democratic rival.

She, however, is not correctly describing the debates of 1858; the format there involved one candidate speaking for an hour, the other then speaking for an hour and half, and the first candidate concluding with a 30-minute rebuttal. Clinton aides said they would prefer a format in which the candidates take turns in two-minute increments.

It went the way of intelligence in the US. There is not much of it left, and the schools are seeing to it that even that little bit is going fast.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is an election not supposed to be a confrontation of ideas and political programmes? So far, it seems American public opinion is just involved in a sad popularity contest.
I find many of the comments posted on this page (anti-semitic, mysogynistic and racist) absolutely baffling. Is this all Americans have to say? Where has the intellectual debate typical of a sound democracy gone?

Senator Obama was considered to be the winner in all but the last debate in which the winners were the two leaers of the "debate" and Senator McCain. The issues were not even looked at till everyone had turned off their TV. 45 minutes of swill.
How easily you are swayed.

Unlike her husband Bill who has the astrological sign of Leo. He had that sign's trait of magnetism where people willingly followed him. Poor Hillary is a Scorpio crab who will climb all over the backs of any and everyone in her way to get out of the bucket on her way to the presidency. That's why her negatives are so high. The media is banking on a Bill like come from behind - against all odds win. BUT SHE'S NOT AT ALL LIKE HER HUSBAND. People don't forget being stepped on, and won't be supportive.

Obama is a chicken...plain and simple. Hillary and Obama only had 4 debates 1 on 1 and given Obama's last debate performance he has much to prove to the American people. Wake up and listen to the buzz in the air...the momentum is with Hillary now and Obama needs to show Americans that he is still a viable candidate. I voted for Obama in February and I am beginning to think I made a big mistake.

What a laugh. Your proof of this please. Not true at all. Record for peace. What about 1918 till the Korean War??
And remember the economic growth had little to do with the Clintons. The executive branch only presents the budget, the legislative branch chews it up and approves. The Congress was controlled by the repubicans all during the Clinton administration. They came into power shortly after he was elected and were still there when he left! The economy was due to the dot.com boom and his cutting of military spending. Another under educated Clinton supporter.

Mr Obama should insist on Debate and on Oxford Rules. How many TV Mediators understand the rules of real dabate, certainly not George Stephanopolous. Ms Clinton cannot debate nor does she know how to debate but she does know how to sling sleaze and mud, and she knows how to lie (bigtime). Debate occurs when one side offers his/her position on the economics of Health Care (for example) and the other responds with his/her counter-opinion and it is done without party spin-doctors. Obama has the intellect and the ability to do this, Hillary has shown us that she cannot.Obama is quite right to turn down her request for another mud throwing session. Hillary talks smart, but she is not smart and a real debate on Oxford rules would let Obama sweep the floor with her.

From the news:
Hillary Clinton and "The Largest Election Law Fraud in History"

"Hillary Clinton's campaign appears to be in possible legal jeopardy with the introduction of a "smoking gun" video in a court case that has somehow escaped the attention of the mainstream media.

Investor's Business Daily explains that the "scandal involves allegations by movie producer Peter Paul that a 2000 senatorial fundraiser for Clinton in Hollywood violated campaign laws. Paul claims he spent $2 million to produce the fundraising event -- a de facto campaign expenditure. Under campaign law then in effect, campaign gifts were limited to $2,000."

Of course there are people who won't vote for some uppity, young black guy, or for any other black guy; and there are others who won't vote for a phoney, "No-holds-barred", Lady Macbeth. Those are the perceptions, the way many people will see them, regardless of what they say, think or do

People will make all kinds of other excuses, like experience, legislative experience, character issues, idealogical reasons- but basically they will vote for (and against) the images they perceive.

And unfortunately, an older white-haired retired fighter pilot is an image that a lot of people have been conditioned to think of as "Presidential."

But if we shed the "Images" and look at the lives, words and actions of the candidates- one rings truer than the others; and smarter.

Obama has shown his immaturity after his inept performance at the Pa. debate. He went on the next day to N.C. to give a speech and paused after saying "Hillary was in her element". Then he made a disgusting gesture with his mid-index lifting it to his face to scratch obviously pausing with a smirk for the audience to 'clue in' and they, equally immature, broke into wild applause. Then he shook of the mud (Hillary!) off his shoes and shoulders showing his total lack of respect for his female fellow Senator!
He should get of junior high and this juvenile should revise his resume and send it to SNL for the rapper-comic mime's job which is his for the asking! Just don't try for the top job in the country.

These comments are getting nastier and nastier on both sides.

Thankfully they really don't represent the electorate but a few fanatical supporters who can't seem to see the forrest for the trees.

I am an ardent Clinton supporter but will support Obama if he is the candidate. I think that is the case with most rationale supporters on both sides. But let's face reality- Clinton does have the better chance to beat McCain.

But Obama can potentially beat him as well. But this election will be decided in the swing states not by African Americans or young voters but by seniors, women and the so-called Reagan Democrats. Those voters who are going for Clinton.

As Doug Wilder said recently he has told this to Obama all along. Wilder is a strong Obama supporter but he is a realist. He has said Obama can win but it won't be easy.

So the Obamaites better cut the harsh rhetoric if they really think he will win the nomination because they are alienating the voters who Obama will need if he is the candidate.

As a Clinton supporter I dislike the vitriol on either side and urge all these zealots to calm down. They aren't helping their candidate. We can disagree on who has the better chance to win but let's be civil about it.

To deny that lobbyists, including the Jewish lobby, bring enormous pressure to bear on American politics is myopic at best. And your only rebuttal is to accuse the writer of being a "subliterate" fool, paranoid, and anti-semitic.
It's very convenient for you to employ that type of ad hominem attack when you don't have any better arguments to refute his claims. Senator Obama's goal of kicking all the lobbyists out of the White House is a lofty one. Of course, if you want our foreign policy to continue to be inordinately influenced by those with close ties to foreign governments, then Clinton's your gal.

This morning, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), gave several television interviews in which he vigorously advocated staying the course in Iraq. He told the CBS Early Show, "[T]here is progress being made...we've got to at least give this new strategy a chance to succeed."

McCain further claimed, "I don't recall a time in history while men and women are fighting and sacrificing that one of our major leaders has said that the conflict is lost." On two separate occasions during the Clinton administration, however, he argued for the approval of legislation guaranteeing the removal of U.S. forces from foreign engagements, regardless of the consequences:

October 1994 -- McCain argued for the precipitous withdrawal of U.S. forces from Haiti: "In my view that does not mean as soon as order is restored to Haiti. It does not mean as soon as democracy is flourishing in Haiti. It does not mean as soon as we have established a viable nation in Haiti. As soon as possible means as soon we can get out of Haiti without losing any American lives." [Senate Floor, 10/6/94]

October 1993 -- McCain argued against giving any strategy the chance to succeed in Somalia: "Mr. President, can anyone seriously argue that another 6 months of United States forces in harm's way means the difference between peace and prosperity in Somalia and war and starvation there? Is that very dim prospect worth one more American life? No, it is not." [Senate Floor, 10/14/93]

Obama is a woosie

Walked away and drove away from questions early on in this campaign and that is the only reason he got as far as he did. He didn't want us to know who he was. He was running for American Idol. He REFUSED to answer questions asked on the grounds it might incriminate him. And now he has answered the questions - not to our satisfaction. Rezko, Wright, NAFTA, Afghanistan, Black Like Me, Small Town Typical White Bitter People, Ayers, knows nothing about the economy, turns into teleprompter man when he has to give important policy or save his butt "speeches".

Another debate is just a ploy by the Clintons to get free face time on television. Even if it's on the back of a flat bed truck. When you're strapped for cash, as Hillary's campaign clearly is, you can't afford to buy a lot of air time. So, it's not about debating the issues, it's about $$$$$.

Well whoever "me" is you should read something besides your version of a Bible and you may actually use the neurons in what serves as your brain.

Your entirely anti-Semetic remarks are so absurd it's comical. Please take your trash talk to Bellvue or the nearest insance asylum and get off your paranoid trip of delusion, and self infliction.

It is entirely unnecessary to explain to normal people that the Bible for all religions are merely stories. That the Christian versions decided to persecute Jews is well known. Besides crispy pieces of Tortilla on eBay which appear to look like the Virgin Mary there is no evidence in fact only conjecture and doctrine that Jesus in fact existed.

Dear Sir,

No need to read the entire comment made by "me" on April 27, 2008 11:36 PM to realise the anti-semitic content of his/her courageously anonymous post. The last sentence is more then enough to illustrate his/her stereotypial view: "Coincidentally, it was they [Biblical Jews] who betrayed Jesus to the Romans so he could be crucified."

I do not feel offended, but just surprised such views can be expressed in what I take for a quality information media.

Sincerely yours

Of course she's still talking up her debate plan. She needs the free air time because her fund raising efforts are insufficient to be competitive. She tried this debate bating in Wisconsin too, but Obama just kept talking to the people and whupped her there too. 21 is more than enough and way more than in any other primary ever.

Obama has stopped reffering to HC by name and lumps her in with McCain as his "opponents". He has correctly decided that it is time to direct his attention on the GE. Why aknowlege HC at all at this point? He has the numbers to make the case to the SD he wants to make that he should be the nominee. Debating her, even publically acknowleging the comments that she directs at him, is a zero sum gain and only makes it harder to unite the party behind his candidacy. Call him a coward if you like, but there is no doubt HC would rather be in his position at this point. HC needs to keep the apperance up of a close race where the end result is still in question. This is why it is important for her to engage him as much as possible. He would be foolish to debate her at this point in the race.

Oh, and by the way, Hillary WAS in the position to make an important decision in 2002, and NOT over the phone at 3 a.m. Nor was she under sniper fire, as far as I know. No, instead she had weeks to think about it, and a National Intelligence Estimate available to read.

Unbelievably, she chose not to inform herself as well as possible before casting her vote on one of the biggest issues facing the Congress in many years.

Instead she, using her "best judgment," voted on the basis of her "long record of foreign policy experience" to allow the dumbest president in living memory to play Army in Iraq.

That's not the kind of president we need.

Wilson, how is it that all the debates which have taken place already are not considered "real"? At this point, it's all about "gotcha" soundbites and a public spectacle, not the issues and how to address them. I would suggest that you turn on the WWF or sth if that's what you're looking for. Can you smell what the Rock is cookin'?

howdy999, Obama HAS been debating real issues. In fact, he's already done so 20+ times in this campaign. That may be a record (I'm not sure). At this point, every legitimate question that needed to be asked and discussed has been asked and (sort of) discussed - one thing I actually like about Obama is that he takes the time to think about the question he was just asked and tries to answer it intelligently, rather than just spitting out the same campaign bull$h1t in every answer ("See my website, HilllaryClinton.com.."), whether or not it has anything to do with the actual topic.

Would Obama be a good president? I don't know, but I think so. He certainly has the charisma and intellectual ability, and his admittedly unorthodox (for a presidential candidate) background may actually have prepared him better for the job than 8 (Hillary) or 30+ (McCain) years spent avoiding hard questions and making deals far from public view.

Would Hillary Clinton be a good president? I don't know, but I doubt it. Yes, she is an intelligent woman, but completely void (seemingly) of any ability to understand and/or care about issues in any context other than her ego and ambition. It has largely been her refusal to acknowledge that she is losing the race which has split the Democratic party and caused all the acrimony which might throw the election to McCain. I don't like her, but before all this happened - the veiled racism, the stupid 3 a.m. ad, the shot 'n' a beer with the rural PA locals (of whom she told her husband when he was president "Screw them"), the deliberate misrepresentation of the truth - I might have been able to grit my teeth and vote for her. Now I can't, and I know many others for whom that is also true.

It's interesting to watch these Clintonistas in hear trying to rationalize Hillary's delusional behavior. They look more like the Bushies every day. They know she pretty much lies about all of her qualifications, but they try to spin it and say she's a fighter. News flash folks: being a fighter doesn't mean being a liar and casting idiotic aspersions. Considering she running for the Presidency of the USA, I'd prefer a fighter who doesn't lie and worry about whether or not someone is wearing a flagpin made in China. Hillary doesn't debate. She get's up on stage, applies her "spoiled little brat" facemask, and starts spewing out mindless drivel. Obama is not afraid of her. He's an adult treating a spoiled little child having a tantrum the way an adult should.

Sen. Obama's stated reason for ducking a debate before Indiana and North Carolina doesn't ring true. He says that he wants to have time to communicate with voters. "Allahpundit" (one of the more important Blogs; hotair.com) has raised the question we're all wondering: "What's the most efficient way to communicate with voters? Surely not at a massively promoted, televised, highly watched debate. Much better to hold a few town halls and meet and greets."

We've had four one-on-one debates so far -- and with each debate we get a clearer reading of the candidates. A debate without a moderator, as Clinton has suggested, could be particularly interesting. Ducking a one-on-one debate with Sen. Clinton on issues that concern us convinces me that Sen. Obama is too unsure of himself to handle the pressure of the Oval Office.

Like Minilli Vanilli, Obama would rather lip-synch his way to the candidacy than debate REAL ISSUES in an unplugged format. He'd rather blitz the TV with glitzy ads that manufacture and sell his image, than appear in a debate before voters in an unfiltered and unscripted way. He'd rather bowl and play hoops and otherwise play-act, rather than participate in civic debates where voters get a chance to gauge his knowledge of REAL ISSUES. He is nothing more than a pre-canned act.

Ducking a one-on-one debate with Sen. Clinton on the issues that concern us convinces me that Sen. Obama is too weak to handle the pressure of the Oval Office. According to an account in the New York Times (on Friday in Indiana), Obama talked tough in response to a question: "I get pretty fed up with people questioning my patriotism. I am happy to have that debate with them any place, anytime." Sen. Obama is happy to have fantasy debates with unnamed people who are allegedly challenging his patriotism, but he's not willing to have a real debate with Sen. Clinton--the person he's competing against for the nomination.

If that's what they choose let them--they will destroy all the gains they have made --on the back of Rev. King.

If DNC was rational, there would not have been any reason to hold this debate. The Democratic Party in general and Barack Obama in particular, are robbing Hillary her rightful place as the democratic Party candidate for Presidency. The pledged delegate and caucuses rules of the Democratic Party for the Democratic primary are not democratic! To put it mildly it is a big disgrace! If the Party had followed the rules as per the national presidential elections, Hillary would have been nominated on Super Tuesday. Hillary has already won New York, New Jersey, California, Ohio and Texas. Now She has also won Pennsylvania! If all the super delegates from these states are given to Hillary which she rightly deserves, there would have been no mess! Also, DNC should have at least followed the same rules followed by the Republican Party so that all the candidates would have the same playing field during the primaries.


. DNC has also made a mistake in not having some compromise before the election with Michigan and Florida regarding pledged delegates as was done by the RNC. Now, without making further complications they should accept the result. In Michigan they should give all the 'uncommitted' votes to Obama because, if his name was in the ballot he might have got those votes. In Florida the result should be accepted. Obama's complaint that if he had campaigned in these states, he would have got more votes is not correct. None of the other candidates campaigned there either. He campaigned more vigorously in Texas and Ohio and still did not win them
In future, the primary election rules should be same as national election rules. Then, there will not be this long political circus!

Clinton supporters ask, "Why doesn't Obama debate?"

Do Clinton supporters notice the anger between the Clinton and Obama camps?

Whether Hillary drops out or not, Obama knows it's time to start campaigning against McCain. Time to stop the bickering between the democrats so we democrats can come together and elect a democrat in November.

Anyone who wants to know more about where either candidate stands on the issues can go to their websites and read about the issues for themselves.

The debates have become gladiator spectacles for the media. Obama won the last debate in my view, but Hillary got the media kudos because the media wants to keep the contest going.

If Hillary supporters would rather vote for McCain in November, well then, that's their choice.

I voted for Obama in the primary, and I'll be voting for him in November.

To "me" (first post): Maybe you mean well, but the post you've submitted over and over is not helpful.

And to every Obama supporter: True, we're not Hillary fans, and we should never back away from making our case; but, at the same time, we might consider taking a cue from Obama and hold out the olive branch for the sake of a better November result.

Senator Clinton is just demonstration a campaign in which every single gesture and word is ulterior, meaning something other than what she is saying.

And, my observations suggest that she's been coached lately by people watching the ease with which Obama connects with others. So now she's trying that. But as soon as she's one-on-one, she's once more in her portentous lockjaw smug face, self-important and anything but spontaneous.

From her laughter when she cannot answer a question to her faux blue collar kinship roots, she's acting all the time. But her stamina is impressive, perhaps energized by a certain fixation, singlemindedness, blind ambition, conviction or hysteria.

Just from the inappropriate faux amusement and cackles when she receives a difficult question, I think it is hysteria. It's wonderfully competitive but it makes me wonder whether we ought to trust the office to her.

That way Greenspan wouldn't have so cleverly put this country in bankruptcy with his harmless (not) loans and then having done well he retired. Not to mention the oil powers being supported by a trillion dollar protection war. Not to mention the powers that be (Bilderbergs, TriLateral Commission or one world order org.) divisive collective rice and flour so-called shortage to teach us a lesson about who really has the power (it's not us) and make us pay because the oil power players are scared s__tless about alternatuve fuel putting them out of business.

But I do think I can speak for most of my fellow right-wingers when I say this: We once looked forward with unambivalent glee to the fall of the house of Clinton. Many of us still do. But we also see the liberal media failing to give Hillary Clinton the respect she deserves. So, since we conservatives believe in giving credit where credit is due, it falls to us to praise Hillary....

There's been a lot of talk about race being a factor in this nomination, meaning "typical White people" won't vote for a Black man.

The real color story is the GREENESS of Obama which is lately being overshadowed by another color: the growing YELLOW streak running down his back spreading to the rest of his body.

He is so afraid of Clinton that he doesn't dare to get in the debating ring with her again. She knocks the so called gifted man of words around like a third-rate sparring partner, a punch-drunk stumble bum.

Barack, barack, barack. You repeat his name quickly a few times and it actually sounds like a chicken squawk.

Buc, buc, BARACK! BARACK! BARACK!

Obama, you can run but you can't hide.

Is this the sort of courage we want in a president?

Hillary should debate Bill Clinton, live, and include the F bombs they are both so fond of using on each other. After May 6, ABC should give them their very own reality show, with George Stephanopolous coming in to referee. Carville can sit on the porch, spitting and chewing tobacco, waving a cane and cursing at the critters that run under the house, while Mark Penn sweeps the dirt floors, pausing periodically, to ask, WHY? WHY? WHY?

To "me"
Anyone who would write that "the Jews have a historical pension" for anything is a subliterate fool. You barely have command of the English language. And it's quite clear you have no command of history, politics, or anything but paranoid anti-semitism.

Why is Obama so afraid of a debate in Indiana/Carolina?What is he afraid of ?Has he got something to hide. We need a president whom the citizens can trust not a suave talker and no substance.
Obama says Race is not an issue, then why are 90% of the African/Americans voting for him in all the States that have a majority Why are all the young White Americans taken in by Obama's retortics,smooth talking. Use your brains and analysie the facts and decide on it not your emotions.We need an experience American in the Whitehouse who are good in Foreign policy and not another Bush LEARNING ON THE JOB. iT HAS CAUSE THOUSANDS OF AMERICAN LIVES AS A RESULT.Do U want your sons,daughters and brothers and sisters to sacrifice their lives again in another conflict elsewhere. This is what U will get if U have the wrong person in the WHITE HOUSE. I for one will vote the one with the brains, experiencs and trust who will put the economy back on tract and give jobs to AMERICA and save American lives. U should know who to vote for.PKChiu

Obama is campaigning now for the general Who cares what Hillary has to say anymore. A delusional old lady. She is sounding more nuts everyday. She can;t even draw any applause anymore. They just stand around like they are board.

Hillary is demented. People come to here her speak and she goes on and on with this demented stuff. She is becoming a joke not worth responding to. He spends his time now talking about Mccain and dismisses her altogether. She is no longer relevant except in her own mind. Poor Hillary in her world of delusion.

He probably doesn't want to answer any questions about the LA Times story-Obama donor received State grant. It doesn't look like this guy is as pure as he wants us to beleive.
