Dem Debate

So, there was another debate among the Democratic candidates last night, and, uh, it was, uh, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…

Oh, sorry about that. I fell asleep just thinking about it.

Chris Cillizza has a nice, succinct wrap-up here, which I recommend, and the transcript is here. If that's just not enough debatey goodness for you, though, you can also try:

The New York Times' A Pitched Debate: Clinton Hears It From Her Rivals
The Washington Post's Clinton's Foes Go on the Attack
The Boston Globe's Democrats focus attacks on Clinton at debate
The LA Times's Clinton stumbles a bit in Democratic debate
— The AP's Clinton gets no love in Democrats debate
— The Swamp's Clinton's rivals tag her as 'status quo' or 'throwback'
— The Politico's Obama, Edwards attack; Clinton bombs debate

I don't know about you, but I get the feeling that the other candidates went after Clinton last night.

Not making headlines? The fact that the debate included not a single question about illegal wiretapping and retroactive immunity for telecoms—which is causing a major split among Democrats at the moment, led by one of the people on the stage last night. Yeesh.

UPDATE: In an email, my pal Bob Geiger says: "Was I just having a drug flashback to the 70s last night or, while not bothering to bring up FISA and illegal wiretapping, did the debate moderators actually ask presidential candidates about UFOs and what they're going to be for Halloween?" LOL! Totally.
