Richardson and Clinton on Darfur
Richardson must have been reading The Fix at the break.
The first question after the commercials was on Darfur and went to Richardson. "I have been to that refugee camp," said Richardson, a nice way to show viewers how engaged he is with the issue -- one of his focuses on the campaign trail. "It's about diplomacy," said Richardson.
And, apparently Richardson's latest television ad ran in Iowa during the last commercial break. Thanks to the ever-watchful Carrie Giddins -- communications director of the Iowa Democratic Party -- for that one.
Also, Clinton had a rare unsteady moment on Darfur but pulled out the answer by insisting America needs to focus on the situation in Iraq and defeating al Qaeda in Afghanistan. It was the first serious mention of the war in the debate's first 45 minutes.
