Conc City, NH -
*What a big mess over this illegal immigrant driver's license thing. It has been 5 minutes long.
*Gotta love Kooch saying "thank you" for his applause.
*Dodd just put the teacher merit pay thing very well. Also, props for advoccating for an entire education debate.
*Kooch "I'm the candidate of workers...I remember where I came from."
*Richardson puts some more heat on Ed. Him and Dodd are the only ones who actually seem to know anything about education.
On a side note, hearing this shit pisses me off.
*Biden argues against merit pay based on "who makes the decision?"
*Richardson is tacking hard left tonight. He just said he would put human rights ahead of security. He also traded his budget priorities pin for a US Flag. Probably because they endorsed JRE. "If we're on the side of Democracy and human rights, then US interests are preserved." Great line. Howard Dean is loving it. "Our strength as a nation is our values."
Human Rights vs. Nat'l Security
*"The concepts are not contradictory. They are complimentary." - Obama. Bout time someone said that.
*Clinton again brings it back to Bush.
*Richardson's tone has changed since the last debates, too. Less wooden, more emotional.
*Koochie's dropping bombs. Does America really have a tin ear? Richardson's one dead American is too much didn't get much of a response, either.
*The fact that we have gone from horrific violence to intolerable violence is not acceptable - BHO
*Kucinich calling on everyone to take responsibility for their votes. Too bad no one believes that. Regarding Chinese trade act "You're a trial lawyer, you knew better. This is a fact. I'm not backing down from this."
*First point for Wolf: "was Ross Perot right?" re: NAFTA. Clinton tries to joke it off.
