to martha . And yay for other people voting, too. I just figure I'll be damned if I'm gonna let these politicians walk all over me and other people. We have voices, so let's use them.

This will take you to the beginning of the debate, and you can watch the whole thing there. Also, I agree with everything you said here. I'd expound, but there's no way I could say it any better.
Missed this post last night, I'm sorry-much thanks for that link, I will be sure to check it out. And thanks for the compliment as well, glad you agree.

Tell your friend who you think they should vote for and why you feel that way. Influencing several votes can mean a lot!

Exactly! And hey, just 'cause some can't vote doesn't mean they can't write letters to presidential candidates or go to a rally or something when they come through town. There's still plenty of ways to interact with politicians aside from voting.

That said, I'm really thankful to have been born in October . 2004 was my first time voting in a presidential race.

Just watched that thing with Obama, by the way. He sounds very sincere, and I really like that. He sounds very believable and convincing. And I liked his thoughts, too-it was nice to actually hear a reasonable solution to the immigration issue for once, for instance. And any president that pushes for diplomacy as a means to deal with problems definitely gets some points with me (way to sneak the AIDS in Africa crisis in there, too). The crowd asked some great questions as well. Good stuff. Thanks again for that.

This will be my first presidential election. I'm pretty excited. I voted in the midterms last year, but that didn't go so well...

But you voted and that's what matters. It's exciting to vote in the big leagues. We're glad to have you.

I'm just watching because Brian Williams is purty.


...and Joe Biden has had some of the best lines

"A noun, a verb, and 9-11" (referring to all that comes out of Giuliani's mouth)

I got through maybe the first 45 minutes before I was done.

It's supposed to be a debate ideally, but the reality is that the other candidates are going to spend that time picking apart the person who most likely is going to win the nomination.

I'll pay closer attention to one of these when that's no longer the case. I'll be waiting awhile, methinks.
