American Idol or Democratic Debate?

Posted: Feb 26, 2008 9:02 PM

I'm guessing most are picking American Idol. But I'm hoping Hillary will come with Simon-like knives tonight.

On the bright side, Hill's superdelegates are standing strong. Bring on the Electoral Ultimate Fighting Championship!

She sounds really good on health care, much more in-depth than Barack, and pegging Obama's position as "un-Democratic" in that it's not universal enough. I think she's totally wrong on policy, but she framed that issue well and calmly in her answer. Obama continues to play nice guy, and I'm inclined to side with Clinton because she seems to be actually giving answers. And, because Obama says "Massatusetts" instead of Massachusetts.

Update: Using SNL as a talking point, Hill goes after the media: "Maybe we should ask Barack if he's comfortable. Maybe he needs another pillow..." Ha. She's landing hits, and they work for me, but I don't know if they work for Dems enamored of Obama's hope message. And, of course, she's got that Hillary shrillness going on, just a bit.

9:25 p.m. Hillary sells out NAFTA!
