Democratic Debate Thread #4

By: Thursday January 31, 2008 7:00 pm

The Beard asks the big question: the two of them would make a dream ticket. Huge applause. Would they consider a Clinton/Obama or an Obama/Clinton ticket? Obama — obvious those are two different things, a long way to go and premature to start talking about vice presidents. He doesn’t want yes men or women in the white house, and it’s important to restore confidence in cabinet.

Beard: “is that a yes?” Obama — Hillary would be on anybody’s short list.

Democratic Debate Thread #3

Mitt says neither of them have run a company so how could they run a country. Hillary says running the country is not a business, it’s a trust. Obama says if Mitt’s being judged as a businessman, he isn’t getting his money’s worth with his campaign.

Democratic Debate Thread #2

Politico wants to know if African Americans are having jobs taken away by Latino immigrants? Obama says that’s just not true, the lack of jobs is the result of the Bush economy and not the result of illegal immigration. He says that there should be a path to citizenship, that undocumented immigrants should have to learn English and pay a fine because otherwise they’ll continue to undermine wages.

Hillary says that undocumented workers do drive down wages and have taken jobs away (in the meatpacking and other industries) and there needs to be a comprehensive plan with a path to citizenship, and therefore she does not support drivers licenses because it would only exacerbate the problem. She thinks the issue is a diversion.

Democratic Debate Thread: A Cross Between a Job Interview and Thunderdome

In just a few minutes, there’s going to be another Democratic presidential debate — the last one before next week’s Supernova Tuesday flock of primaries/caucuses, and the first to feature only Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. And it comes at a time when the polls show Obama is closing in rapidly on a tie with Clinton nationally, as well as in many of the states holding contests on Feb. 5th. Think there might be a tiny bit of pressure on Hillary and Barack when the TV cameras are on them tonight?

Watching yesterday’s testimony from AG Michael Mukasey was an evil form of verbal water torture. I’m used to watching people on the stand parse their words so closely that a split hair seems substantial, but that was just painful yesterday….

…And Then Malkin’s Head Exploded

By: Thursday January 31, 2008 11:37 am

After the latest GOP crypt-ology tribute and pie fight, the posturing was taken to new heights: Cillizza was deliberately leaked an “internal” memo clearly prepared for secret deliberate launch into public consumption, declaring the super duper strengthiness of the McCain campaign. Because truthiness and spin are all in the eyes of the Village. And so, of course, the parts of the memo most designed for leakage got printed and discussed in full, with the standard disclaimer of “grain of salt” at the end in pig latin…
