Live Blogging the Democratic Debate (by a non-pundit)

8:10pm
-Barack is a class act, immediately acknowledging John Edwards.
-Hillary's opening statement was better: more focused, less rambling.

8:14pm
-90 day moratorium on foreclosures? How does that work? Can I have a free house, too?

8:16pm
-It's a Democratic lovefest. We are great; Republicans are not great.

8:20pm
-Phone rings with a friend/attorney with a med mal question for her hearing tomorrow (let me know how it went!)

8:30pm
-Phone rings with another friend calling me back because I had a bad day at work. (Thank you.)

8:42pm
-Phone rings with a friend and colleague from work to talk about our bonus system.
-Anyone know what's going on in the debate???

8:54pm
-Allowing illegal immigrants to have driver's licenses is apparently a difficult political issue.

8:56pm
-A little crack in the lovefest is plugged with Hillary's words, "united Democratic front," following digs from both sides.

9:02pm
-Barack worked as a civil rights attorney, turning down lucrative corporate jobs.
-Hillary didn't work for a firm when she got out of law school; she worked for the Children's Defense Fund.
-I'm weak.

9:06pm
-Hillary says the US government is more than a business. Agreed.
-Obama cracks a joke - gets a laugh, but doesn't answer the Mitt Romney-based question about how he can "run" the business of our government.

9:08pm
-Hillary handles the question about losing out on the Kennedy endorsements well. Then rambles.

9:25pm
-T walks in to say goodnight and get the cat to administer her ear drops.

9:30pm
-Hillary says, "the reason is because." One of my Mom's big pet peeves.

9:39pm
-Wolf gets in a dig by asking Hillary, who refuses to admit her vote on the war was a mistake, if she was naive in trusting President Bush and his presentation of the case for war in Iraq.

9:42
-Obama says not only does the President have to be "ready" on day one, he or she has to be "right" on day one.

9:49pm
-There goes that laugh of Hillary's. To the best question of the night: "If you can't control your husband now, what will it be like if you are in the White House?"

9:51
-The Obama/Clinton, Clinton/Obama ticket question: great last question. Obama wouldn't acknowledge he'd be Hillary's running mate, nor would he admit Hillary is on his short list. Hillary says, "I have to agree with everything Barack just said." Then she pitched her own website and plugged some online townhall meeting she's having Monday night. Such politicians.
