I am going to watch the Mass Senate debate on cspan tonight, and see for myself. I watched the primary debate among Democrats. I am a fan of Barney Frank, Markey, and Jim McGovern, so all the candidates seemed insipid by comparison. I was neither strongly for or against Kennedy. I had opinions about many elements in his life and career, but not an overall favorable or unfavorable view. I know that is difficult for folks with strong partisan views to understand - but I was for Humphrey against JFK in the primaries, and for McCarthy against Bobby, and Mondale rather than Carter or Kennedy, so I was both for and against the Kennedy brothers in campaign situations. Obviously I supported them against Republicans. I am very issue oriented, and do not like charisma, or family, or celebrity, or glitz. Obama presented himself to Iowans in the primary in town meetings - I attended two of them in smallish towns in the summer of 2007 - as an issue and policy oriented person, and as one of good will and friendliness, a likeable guy. Not with charisma - except seeing him on TV in big crowd settings with the big speeches, such as the DNC speech in 2004, and the JJ dinner speech in Des Moines.

Yes, I was kidding. To survive Topix, a thicker skin is needed. LOL
