There can certainly be some of that. But some of your comments in this respect have been very condescending.

I am 28, so you will probably put me in that category. I had my idealism beat out of my quite literally when I was 11 years old. That isn't why I'd vote for him.

It is kind of funny

Gibson just asked Hillary about her saying she would have quit Rev Wright's church



she said yes,
I would have left.

Really? when ?

When Wright said "Bill rode us hard like Monica Lewinsky? then? or would she have stayed until he said "Hillary ain't ever been called a nigger."


Ok, this is silly, stupid. I think they got these questions from the SNL writers.

How so? Bill Ayers? It's about time someone other than Sean brought that up.

I keep reading that the real losers of the debate are the American people. Nobody looked good. Nobody.

There are over 6000 comments reacting to the debate on the ABC News site. I'd say about 98% of them are complaining about the horrible questioning and "moderation"

This is news to me.

Never heard this before.

Ayers?

These associations will hurt.

Reading the reactions from readers on the NY Times website and the Washington Post are all the same..."Shame on ABC" etc. etc.

Even Clinton folks are complaining about how tabloid it was.

i fear that this debate may have done the two worst things,

damaged Obama permanently

and driven Clinton's negatives even higher

a good night for McCain.

at least it is still April

and Congress will move ever more to the left in the fall regardless with what happens.
