What Happened at the Debate

Missed the Debate? Here's the Ultimate Cheat-Sheet

Everyone around you is talking about the presidential debate last night and the "Xerox comment heard 'round the world," and you're baffled? Never fear! The New York Times Transcript Analyzer feature practically watches the debate for you, explains the finer points over a nice dinner, and might rub your feet if you're lucky. Okay, not really — but it does have an entire rollover transcript, second-by-second, searchable by word.

Search "Xerox" and up pops a little marker on the exact time it was uttered, how many times, and by whom. It was exactly once, by Hillary Clinton at 51:38, but that one mention is clearly the go-to soundbite from the debate today. Liberty and I will be back in a bit with our reactions, but in the meantime, go check it out. Ooh, and there's video too . . .

Actually, last night wasn't catty at was excessively polite, and pretty boring, frankly! They didn't really say anything I didn't already know, except the stuff about the fence at the border. I prefer Clinton with her claws out! It's better tv! haha

I watched some of the earlier debates and I agree with Jovian, they get so catty (on both sides)its hard to watch. So I stopped! I'm ready for them to bring on the Republican/Democrat debate! Since I didn't watch last night, I'll ask those of you who did, it seemed to me in earlier debates that Clinton came off as very defensive and almost angry, did she lighten up for this one?

Ugh. I simply cannot wait until this race is over, so I won't have to hear about these ridiculous cat fights anymore...

I definitely think March 4 will be interesting, as well. I'm originally from Ohio and I know of a lot of Republicans who are switching over and voting Democrat because McCain pretty much has a lock on the nomination and they really dislike Clinton. In Ohio, you can change your registration at the polls. (Basically, they just ask you which ballot you want.) I think that could make it interesting. However, NE Ohio has been particularly hard hit by the recent economic crisis and Clinton's messages resonate with a lot of people there. Like I said, it's going to be interesting. I'm waiting with baited breath.

Hillary at her best as usual *sigh* but I think Obama came back nicely. I just cant wait until November ... the back and forth is getting old between these two. I am especially excited to see what happens March 4th ... should be close again. I believe a good amount of the polls are putting Hillary ahead so we shall see. This could be a tough state to win for Mr. Barack. PS.. I just wish he'd stop calling my house, I see enough of his commercials on tv :ROTFL: Love Betty
