I think it was a good debate (from the clips I saw) and I agree, Hillary did sound as if she was conceeding but I wouldn't count Tracy Flick, Sr out just yet.


[q]Dear Lord Jesus, I do not often speak with you and ask for things, but now, I really must insist that you help me win the election tomorrow because I deserve it and Paul Metzler doesn't, as you well know. I realize that it was your divine hand that disqualified Tammy Metzler and now I'm asking that you go that one last mile and make sure to put me in office where I belong so that I may carry out your will on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.[/q]

Haha. This is interesting. Xerox this, Clinton:

Clinton faces claims of borrowed language
Posted: 09:45 AM ET

(CNN) – Hillary Clinton – whose campaign has spent the past several days pointing to instances of borrowed language in the speeches of rival Barack Obama – is being accused of lifting words from one very familiar politician: her own husband, former President Bill Clinton.

During Thursday night’s CNN Democratic debate, Clinton looked to highlight occasions when lines used by Obama have resembled those delivered by his friend and adviser, Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick.

Clinton’s closing answer, which brought the audience to its feet, highlighted her personal struggles and the difficulties facing ordinary Americans: "You know, the hits I’ve taken in life are nothing compared to what goes on every single day in the lives of people across our country."

Shortly after she delivered her closing remark, a reader of Joshua Micah Marshall’s Talking Points Memo Web site noted that the line seemed to bear a resemblance to one her husband was quoted as delivering during his 1992 campaign.

"The hits that I took in this election are nothing compared to the hits the people of this state and this country have been taking for a long time," her husband was quoted as saying in an article by Anna Quindlen in the New York Times in that November of that year.

Last night, Hillary Clinton also said: “You know, whatever happens, we're going to be fine. You know, we have strong support from our families and our friends. I just hope that we'll be able to say the same thing about the American people. And that's what this election should be about.”

The Obama campaign immediately began circulating a similar comment delivered by former presidential candidate John Edwards. “What's not at stake are any of us. All of us are going to be just fine no matter what happens in this election. But what's at stake is whether America is going to be fine,” Edwards said during a December debate in Iowa.

I think that what's Huckabee is praying isn't it?

Yeah, I liked Hillary's statement about Bush's war on science. Bush's war on science pisses me off big time.

I watched the entire debate with an open mind as I am still torn between the two candidates. It was very close with both Obama and Clinton making mistakes and staking claim. I was pleasantly surprised there didn't seem to be the mud slinging I thought would happen since the 2 really seem to me to agree on more of the issues than disagree. It's the personal attacks and digging for dirt to sling that I shy away from during these election campaigns. I did applaud Hillary's closing comments and felt she handled the reference to her difficult past rather eloquently. I am glad she didn't pull the emotional tears as before. It was a positive debate I thought and I Will be watching MSNBC next week for yet another round between Obama and Clinton.

I was also sad to hear the news about the motorcade cop who crashed and was killed while escorting Clinton's party in Texas. Very sad. Althought that was the right thing to do cancelling her afternoon activities out of respect to the cop and family I'm sure that will hurt Hillary. There's a lot of ground to cover in Texas in this already very close democratic race.
