I realize this may be construed as superficial; however, the tone and the speaking presentation of Senator Obama is far more positive and presidential than Senator Clinton. Since the president is both head of state and head of government, one cannot overestimate the importance of appearing confidant and presidential.
His tie really is quiet nice.

I was more listening than watching. I'll check out the tie after this short break.

Seems to be going alright. This is the first debate I've watched.

Doing alright blueyedpoet - you?

^No worries, I've been watching bits and pieces of the debates, but not usually full ones.

And, Obama's tie is nice.

I've seen most of these debates and I happen to watch them since I am a political junkie. Although I couldn't be less of a Republican, I have even seen most of their debates (I should've waited to use my debate pun). Really, this is the most important debate.
They're both trying so hard to enlist Edwards' supporters.

(I'm doing well...politics is like blue crack)

By far this is debate has the most stubstance.


Obama is keeping even with her, which is supposedly better than what he's done in previous debates.

When I watch this, I think to myself, whichever one of the two of them is the candidate, there will be a thoughtful, articulate, brilliant person with some real ideas running for president. That is a fact.

The Republicans are old, stale and so pathetic compared to this. It is no surprise that their frontrunner hasn't raised as much money in over a year as Obama raised this month alone.

I think they're both doing a great job tonight. They're both giving intelligent and well-thought answers. Obama still seems to have a better grasp on the issues and more vision than Hillary. I am amused, yet glad, at how well they're treating each other tonight.

I'd say neither candidate "wins" tonight, but the Democratic Party looks a lot better than it did after the last debate.

Both are articulating their ideas very well tonight. I have to say though, I'm really sick of seeing the celebrities in the audience...keep the cameras on the candidates please.

I agree. I think they're "tied", so to speak tonight. They're so far ahead of the Republican candidates in terms of comprehension of reality and workable ideas that it's actually embarassing.

I agree with the general consensus that this debate is indeed head and shoulders above the ticky-tack, lack of substance, lack of intelligence debate last night.
