I missed it, was there anything interesting (RP-wise, of course)?

they didn't touch on RP that I saw.

It was mildly interesting. (I missed the rep debate, and caught some of the dem).

Hillary spewing crap. Obama and Edwards being sophisticated about it.

They are (all) much more anti-war than 5 months ago.
Ron (and our grass-roots efforts) has changed the discussion in both parties. :)

it almost put me to sleep, but at one point I thought Hillary was going to go Howard Dean. She almost lost it completely. I was waiting for her head to start spinning.

Eh, there were some fun moments. At one point, Hillary's body language said that she wanted to leap out of her chair and beat the hell out of John Edwards.

Not much of substance though.

I've never seen people get more disagreeable about agreeing with each other.

Message is powerful :)

Didn't notice much anti-war sentiment on GOP side, though.

That was great! She looked like a pissed off cat with her squinty eyes and laid back ears!

Richardson was the adult in the room.

Hillary acted (fake) "hurt" that Iowan's didn't like her........Obama , Edwards,and Clinton all bickered endlessly about who was the REAL "change" candidate.

No substance.....a dumbed-down debate for and from dumbed-down people. (nauseating)

They spent a lot of time talking about the word "change", who was the most for change, who has brought about the most change, and who will be the most effective agent for change, and more often then not they weren't even talking about specific policies, they were just saying the word "change" as if change in and of itself is something to pursue.

"i'm the changiest changer ever!"

"i change all the time! i'm the changer!"

"we need change and i change more than anyone!"

etc

I was switching back and forwards all the time, the only good moment I caught was Clinton accusing Obama of lobbying for pharmaceutical companies.

Edit: In the end of the day, nobody provided the definition of this mysterious word "Change".

EXACTLY! That's how I'm gonna describe it from now on.

I'm really tempted to make a Youtube of Hillary's response spliced with this:

EDIT: Okay, I couldn't resist. I'm making it.

"Change" was definitely WAY overdone in the Dem debate. I thought maybe I'd listen in to see what they would talk about but it was really boring. Nothing exciting like the Rep debate.

Change - moving America to socialism!

Well, if it is Canadian like socialism, it might actually work. But the restrictions of our(I am Canadian) socialism is:

1) Small military.

2) Non-intervetionalism.

3) Relying on elder brother a.k.a. USA.

4) Ideology of diversity, not the ideology of Melting Pot.

Third point is where Canadian socialism will not work in America.

when hillary was yelling change as the first woman president got claps, I was thinking to myself why is that something that's applaudable?

How about change that is real and substantial
