I would imagin it's hard to NOT! use someone elses words when time is short an one has to make the best speach they can each day, and multiple times at that..
and they can't personally attack each other because everyone screams "negative campaign", and I don't want to see that either.
Untill one of them come up with something profound, this is what we have.
actually, I've stopped watching for awhile. I tend to read more and not fall into the frenzy of it all.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I don't think anybody is above a squabble or two. Even the best of us.

Joe Biden was forced to step out of the race in 1988 for the same thing. Slow, maybe......But I think Deep may have said it best.

I don't think "the best we have to offer" get into politics.

Indeed. Aren't politics just lovely?

Idealism aside, politics were about as immature as this during the times of the Founding Fathers. In fact, Bush here probably has a lot in common with John Adams; people were genuinely afraid that he was a power-hungry despot that would destroy democracy too. Had it not been for the Supreme Court asserting its power for the first time ever, Adams might have succeeded too. It appears that history doesn't always repeat itself, I guess.

and when one complains about the other's words, it's clear that she's not got much else to offer.
