Liveblogging the Democratic Debate: A Disclaimer

Before tonight's Democratic presidential debate gets started, a quick disclaimer:

We are blogging this event in real time. The following posts are meant to provide a flavor for the proceedings but should not be treated like an official transcript. (I can type fast, but not that fast.)

With that caveat out of the way, let's get ready to rumble!

For example, here are some questions for the Dem candidates you'll never see on CNN:

CNN should be ashamed of allowing this to go on the air. All Blitzer did - for the portion I watched - was ask them puffball questions and then stand there while they speechified. If CNN wanted to have a real debate, they would have featured very tough questions. Of course, that might have had a disastrous impact on a few of the candidates' political careers, and obviously CNN doesn't want that.

Hilary's claim on 'what she would do in her first 100 days' is too vague and not believable. Focusing on bringing the troops home is sure to be on the top of all the canidate's list.

John Edwards, once again, hit it home with his sharp focus on what's most important. The United States of America's standing in the world stage is dreadful. Doing a tour to signal to the world's leaders that we are now willing to sit with them and work on the things that the Bush Admin have damaged or ignored, is critical.

One of the most impressive characteristics of all the canidates would have to be Edwards' ability to pay close attention to what the other canidates had said.

John Edwards had several times pointed to how he agree or admired what the others had to say or pointedly argued to the contrary.

These are the qualities missing in most of the other canidates and especially within our current White House.

It sure didn't take them very long to try and enlist little Timmy into the military. I thought these were the party that wanted to bring the troops home.

Both Edwards and Obama seem to be eye-to-eye on most of their thinking. I'd like to see Obama run as Edwards' Vice Pres.

It looks like Hilleray lost weight. She actually looks a bit more feminine, however, her laugh continues to loud abd annoying.

I didn't hear anything about how these canidates will work with industry on global warming issues. Come on Dems... embrace the issues that mean something to everyone. Substance damn it!

Here is a more challenging question that hasn't been addressed. ( I know I can come across as crass, but this is a more serious question)

Q: Nobody seems to have addressed the situation of how they would help the american people transition into the new age of globalization of the many industries that are leaving the US. How would you foster an economy that is fair to all americans?

Which corporate are sponsoring the the immigration reform besides Home Depot, KBR, and the farm industry (picking strawberries and such is the only industry the US citizens are truely unwilling to do).

Was Hilary a 'Goldwater Girl' or not? If yes, how has it shaped your politics, Mrs. Clinton?

Biden sounds strident. Kucinich sounds as if he is reciting from memory

I want the moderator to ask Billary 'Approximately, how much funding for her presidential run will come from the pharmacutical corporations, the healthcare insurance industry, and the AMA?'

Please

Odd choice for a backdrop by CNN... Kind of distracting...

Posted by: Peter | June 3, 2007 7:10 PM | Report abuse

CNN is offering the debate free on Pipeline.

Wolf Blitzer is annoying me already with his condescending rules.

Lets see how the "honor system works."
