The Youtube Democratic debates are scheduled for tonight, well right now actually, anyways,
after the debates are over..


What are your thoughts in general about how it went?
Do you think they chose good questions/issues?
Has your opinion on any candidate changed?
Has this debate been enlightening to you?
Anything else?

I'm watching it.

Hillary's going to win the Democratic nomination and barring a diving miracle, she'll probably also win the presidency.

God help us all.

A few things I'll note thus far.

1. The audience needs to not clap so much.
2. Edwards needs to respond more simply.
3. I've got another reason not to vote for Kucinich.
4. Gravel has'nt gotten enough time to speak, in fact he's only answered one question.

Is that reason because he doesn't know the difference between the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution?

I'm not a Democrat, but Gravel and Dodd won points in my book.

I haven't really heard Dodd before, and to me
he came off as the most 'Presidential' up there.

Gravel didn't get the time he should have and he angrily
pointed that out to everyone, which I was hoping he would do.
Was it me or did they have the camera zoomed in on Gravel's head?

And Anderson Cooper was quick to interrupt
Gravel and Kucinich about the time limit.

As djohnsto77 pointed out, its Hillary anyways, God help us all.

The more I see, I think that's the best case scenario.

Yes, God help us if Hillary wins, but I don't think even he could help us if any of these other Dems get it.

i just saw some questions, i wish they weren't edited. Like that guy questioning nuke power. It was edited so much.

I wish someone would have the balls to stand up and talk about free energy solutions, but hey that will never hanppen.

I find youTube questions scripted.

Any sources for the debates?

I don't feel like searching through youtube to find each question.

I'm glad to see that they've been asking Senator Gravel more questions and letting
him answer, the first two they were'nt very fair on, and the first half they did'nt ask him as many,
though I suppose since they have'nt asked everyone each question it's not as bad.

I like Richardson on everything except Iraq, since he does'nt seem to have studied
the logistics of pulling out as fast as possible.

Biden and Dodd have scored some points for me, though I'm not changing my choice
for Primary vote.

Since Hilary and Barack are most likely going to be the top choices, I've been trying
to figure out which one is better, not that I'm voting for them in the primary,
but it will depend on how I vote in the main election.

I started watching them but to tell the truth none of them deserve my vote and neither the Republican candidates.

All of them are on the same agenda, corruption.

I noticed his being edited, but I think that's most likely because he made a really long video,
so they had to edit it for time constraint reasons.

Oh, and of course there scripted, do you think most people could ask the question and
remember everything without reading it?

CNN may be streaming it on there site, though I don't know any place that has them.

Wow we are seriously screwed.

John Stewart's cluster # to the white house seems pretty fitting at this time...

God help us all.

I don't see any viable candidates. The one man who tried to shed some light on the funding of politicians (Alaskan) was cut short because he scared the rest of the people up there. His 'rating' went down because most people don't want to hear the truth. They want to hear 'oh I'm going to change America for the better' crap.

The truth hurts.

Did you see the rest of the debaters get all red when he mentioned the bankers running America? They were really scared. Reminds me of Wolf Blitzer's interview with Michael Moore.

I believe you're referring to Senator Gravel.

The reason he got cut off, and mind you I support him, but the reason he got cut off is
because he was going over the limit he was told, and on that one started going pretty far off topic.

How can we trust people in our political two elite parties that their harts and minds belong to corporate American?

How can you trust them, really.

Then when somebody raises to better this nation for the good of its citizens and not private interest they get not chance what so ever against the ones ruling our nation from behind.

Is a shame, our political system is in the hands of a few not in the hands of the people anymore.

Our fate is dictated not by the way we vote but by the way the candidates are chosen before and after the votes are cast.

Shame them all.

Is not problem with voting for a candidate that have what American people wants.

The problem is how far can a candidate that will go against what is profitable right now be in the primaries.

This candidates are just that candidates.

I don't support Kucinich for a few reasons.

1. He wants to end NAFTA.
NAFTA, even though people in each of the three member countries think they are
getting screwed by the other, has for the most part been a good thing for America,
not that I don't think it needs some changes and a few major overhauls, but all in all
I support NAFTA, since I support free trade between free and democratic countries.

2. He wants to ban hand-guns. Shortly after the Virginia Tech massacre he basically
created legislation to ban hand guns.

3. He support reparations to blacks.
Now I'm pretty much as far as you can get from being racist, but I see no reason that
people today should be getting money for what happened to their grandparents
and older generations. Now if someone was alive today who had been a slave,
than yes they should get reparations, but considering the fact that no one is, there is no reason for it.

Now that the debate is over, I have to say, I am glad I watched it, at first I was sort of
annoyed that Senator Gravel was'nt given as many questions and was cut off on the first
question, but I think his going over the limit (the longest time over it than anyone) made up for it.

Honestly, I am looking at Dodd and Richardson as maybe becoming my choices in the
primaries, though if I were to vote in the primaries right now, Gravel would get my vote.

My take...

Biden actually caught my interest this time. He presented well and actually spoke to what I wanted to hear about.

Gravel - god what can you say about this guy. He is a pistol and I love watching him make the other candidate squirm.

Hillary represented well, but she should - she is the front runner.

Obama annoyed me for the first time. I saw the first instances of "slick."

Dodd - snooze

Richardson. This was a guy I actually had on my short list for the longest time. But he is unpolished and that just doesn't go over well with voters.

Here's a question for everyone.

Seeing as this form of debate is so new and different and has honestly been extremely popular,
do you think future debates will take this form?

Or in other words, will debates be able to go there previous form, or will we see future
Youtube debates from here on out?
