The Dem Debate

After questioning President Bush's sanity, we learned in tonight's Democratic debate that Dennis Kucinich communes with aliens. 'Nuf said.

Seriously, though, by waffling on the issue of illegal immigrants receiving drivers' licenses, Hillary Clinton did her opponents a big favor -- dramatizing all the character issues they have been trying to bring up. She also did Republicans a favor; her stumble has brought the question to the forefront of the political debate and there's no question that a majority of the country would oppose the Democrat position on this issue.

By defending Hillary Clinton, who is beating him like a cheap drum, Bill Richardon revealed some patent desperation to be named Vice-president. Hugh Hewitt speculates that Barack Obama's attacks on Mitt Romney signal fear of him -- and constitute an audition for the VP spot on Hillary's ticket. Could be . . . but it could also be just another manifestation of Barack's famously thin skin.
