I thought this would get more interest on ATS.
Here we have two of the high-profile democratic contenders for president having wha they thought was a private conversation. They think the field is
too large and that there should be limits on who get to debate for the democrataic spot.
Nevermind that the election is not until a year from November.
Nevermind that it should be up to the candidates who gets to speak to the american electorate.
I saw the clip: every news channel was playing it today.
It was kind of sickening, the insincerity, the way they arrogantly spoke. The way they segued into a friendly convesation with other candidates.
But, don't take my word for it:
At least one democratic contender was NOT amused.
Kucinich angrily reacts to Clinton-Edwards exchange in
"Candidates, no matter how important or influential they perceive themselves to be, do not have and should not have the power to determine who is
allowed to speak to the American public and who is not," Kucinich said in a statement released by his campaign.
The Edwards-Clinton exchange was picked up by several broadcasters on an open microphone after an NAACP forum in Detroit on Thursday. All eight
Democratic candidates took part in the program, including Barack Obama, Bill Richardson, Chris Dodd, Joe Biden, Mike Gravel and Kucinich.
