I sure as hell hope not.

But what the f*&k .. 30 years ago, we were buying pet rocks, and walking around in canary-colored leisure suits..

I gave up a long time ago thinking that great decisions came from large numbers of people ..

... Biden, per usual, had a stand-out performance, and you choose to add only his diamond quote?!

Glenn, give me a break. Did you watch the debate?

All I saw in "Slick Hillie" tonight was another FLIP FLOP. This time in campaign tactics.

For the past 2 weeks she has been playing the poor defenseless woman and now tonight she was the attacking PIT BULL.

Chalk it up to Mood Swings or two weeks of tutoring by Bill to change from the same tactics she used against Lazio as "poor defenseless me" and morph into another Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher.

"Slick Hillie" has seen that her "defenseless woman" tactic that "you men are invading my space so back off" that worked so well when Lazio physically approahed her during the Senate debate was not flying in this presidential race so she is doing a 180 and started attacking and throwing throwing mud at everybody and at the same time accused the others of slinging mud.

Talk about the abused woman. Living with Bill Clinton has made Hillary completely dysfunctional. She sat back and internalized Edwards and Obama criticizing her for two weeks and then tonight flew into a rage. Well we don't need that in a President. Presidents can't go from defenseless to rage. Presidents must be calm, express anger when necessary and NEVER fly into an EMOTIONAL RAGE.

Wrong woman at the right time but definitely the wrong woman.

You know this is really turning into a joke. Biden won tonight's debate hands down. He is without a doubt the most qualified and has the most experience than any other candidate on that stage.

Really to bad we can't elect Obama and insist he hire Biden as his "Bench Coach."

Obama/Biden? Biden/Obama?

Either way it works for me.

You men make me sick. You think she's emotional? I'd take emotional over the delusional jerk we have in office now, any day. Hillary, Edwards, Biden or Obama is a great line up of Candidates any way you look at it and any one of them will make a fine president. All the GOP have is a cross dressing, cancer wife leaving mess of a man, who's claim to fame was roaming the streets of NY during 9/11. Why? Because he had no office to go to. The Terrorists blew it up. This happened because he refused to listen to advice to have his office in a safer place after the terrorist bombed it years before.
Get use to it, you chauvinistic American men. A woman will be running this country. If it was OK for England, Israel, India, etc., it's about time for us.
When Bush stole the election, I knew we were going to hell in a hand basket. I was wrong. He took us there using the express elevator!

I watched the debate, and it seemed more like clinton was more interested in attacking her opponents then wanting to give us answers to the questions.

Was it CNN or Hillary who planted the diamond/pearls question? How silly was that?

Normally, I'm not a Biden fan, but tonight he did stand out. I also think Wolfe was his usually a**hole self. Talk about rolling over!

Did anyone really expect Hillary Clinton not to come out of this looking like a come-back winner? This was set up and it doesn't matter. Mrs. Clinton will be the next president, no matter what kind of acting performance she gives. Get ready for illegal aliens getting their driver's licenses. The taxpayers will pay for the aliens' auto purchase, insurance and registration fees. Also, if there are any tickets for moving violations by an illegal alien invader, you taxpayers will pay the fines. These aliens won't have to pick tomatoes anymore after the 2008 election. That kind of work will be performed by political dissidents.

It's not about gender. I would love it if a Margret Thatcher were available to run. Hillary is no different than anyone else out there running or has run in the past 16 years. The only thing she cares about is HER. She cares about being the first woman president; NOTHING ELSE. Not me, not you, not even her family.

She knew they were going to ask more questions on what she screwed up last time, so she listened to her handlers and was ready. I just wish we knew what her true core values and convictions were and not just hear her say what the target audience wants to hear

"When asked if she supported Spitzer's driver's license plan, she responded with a simple "no." On Wednesday, she came out against the widely reviled proposal just a week after expressing broad support"

So far she has been silently for it, vaguely against it, outspokenly for it, and sort of outspokenly against it. FACE IT, HILLARY IS PRO-ILLEGAL !!!

As another poster has asked Hillary supporters: "Name 3 things NY Senator Clinton has done for NY state in her 6 years in office."
Oh please everyone

As others have said, " Do you see anything better standing up there to choose from"?..We need Al Gore to make a run

Clinton is a great lady who knows when to act and when to react. Her conduct when her husband was found involved in Lewinsky affair, raised her in the eyes of the people, not only in USA but the world over. It is easy to break marriages; it is difficult to maintain one. She is certainly going to make a great history in USA - the first woman President. Her performance in debates is excellent.
