Dodd Gets a Round of Applause

After a first 60 minutes in which he was generally silent, Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) drew a nice round of applause for praising the service of a woman's husband in the audience.

He then delivered a muscular statement about the role of the next president when it comes to keeping Americans safe. "No one is going to be elected president who is not going to have as their primary responsibility to keep us safe and secure," said Dodd.

A nice moment for him.

And did we mention all the candidates are now sitting? Ah, townhall formats ...

"Dodd gets a round of Applause." Isn't it just a bit disingenuos to twist Dodd's thanking the men and women who died in Iraq to insinuate the applause was for him. Get your words right Chris Cillizza.

"Dodd praises person's service - while voting to kill him if he were in Iraq by cutting off funding. Schizophrenic? Or stupid?"

Neither. But your comment certainly is stupid. Schizophrenia is difficult to diagnose in the context of a blog but keep writing and I'll take a shot at it.

Does it feel like that Obama could have gotten an easy sound bite from going all gung-ho on the Osama question, and didn't take it?

Look at the Republican debate, a lot of chatter from 5 seconds of Osama-killing chatter.

Gravel looks like he is going to slide out of his chair. Kucinich looks like he is still standing (and no, that is not a height joke--he is just sitting perfectly vertically).
