I really enjoyed CNN/YouTube's debate late night. It was refreshing to see questions being asked that would never have been asked by the MSM.
Having real people ask the candidates questions kept them on their toes. The candidates couldn't rely on pat well-rehearsed answers, and Anderson Cooper did a good job making sure they didn't veer off from the question.
I hope these kind of debates become the standard. The other kind suck.
As far as who I thought did the best job, it's hard to say. They all did well and I'd be happy if any of them became our President...including, gasp, Hillary. Personally, I thought Edwards, Biden, Obama, and Kucinich had the best performances. Mike Gravel's "follow the money" comment was right on. I liked what Obama said about meeting with all the world leaders. Edward's comment about struggling with the gay marriage issue seemed sincere. He was also very good about health care. I liked Kucinich's comment about how to end the war (cut funding), and Biden answered the questions with passion & humor. Richardson was great when asked about "no child left behind." He said to scrap it. Good answer.
Biden seemed the most Presidential to me and my sister, but I still have issues with him.
At this point in time, I'm supporting Edwards & Kucinich...and Obama.
