Dems Debate (Again)

There was yet another Dem debate last night, which I didn't watch because I quite honestly couldn't muster the slightest bit of interest. The transcript is here, and it's pretty much the same old shit with no tide-turning events. Steve Benen's got a good review here.

I did like this bit in Reuters' coverage:

Edwards criticized Clinton for voting earlier in the day in Washington to approve a nonbinding motion calling on the State Department to designate Iran's Revolutionary Guard as "a foreign terrorist organization," which Edwards said was a potential first step toward war against Iran.

…Long-shot candidate Mike Gravel jumped on Clinton as well, saying, "I am ashamed of you, Hillary, for voting for it."

After a loud laugh at the often-comical Gravel, Clinton defended her vote.
Laugh it up, Hils—but lots of the Democratic base feels exactly the same way Gravel does. And haughty disdain probably isn't the best way to respond to that.
