Campaign Overload

All right, I'll admit it. I've been getting burned out with all this political stuff. So much of it seems irrelevant. Should we care that Obama dressed in Somali garb when he was in Somali? Of course not, but that's only the tip of the iceberg of what's ahead of us in the fall, especially since political news guru Mark Halperin is suggesting that McCain use both the race card and (to come completely out of left field) the Manchurian candidate card. Of course, since he writes at the Time magazine site, he points out in a note at the end of his column: "This is analysis, not advice." (Emphasis entirely his.) Because the Republicans could never have come up with any of that stuff on their own.

All this is to say that I couldn't bring myself to watch tonight's debate between the last Democrats standing. From a couple of summaries of it I've read, it appears that while it was more contentious than what we've been used to seeing, Hillary didn't do anything to put Obama on the defensive, which means that Obama carried the day. Everything's going his way, so unless she could change that direction, she might as well have stayed at home.

If anybody wants to provide their own analysis of what they saw tonight, by all means enlighten us in a comment.
