    I watched the end of the Barack interview and the entire Hillary one.

    He made the point that in a contest between himself and McCain, independent voters will mull it over, but one against Hillary and McCain, voters would be totally against her.

    In Hillary's interview, one thing I noticed was how many shots of her meeting-n-greeting young women, who seemed in rock star awe of her.

    Besides hammering in the "Ready on Day 1", she did say one thing which I thought was notable: she complimented Barack on inspiring young voters to join the Democratic party, but she implied those voters were going to her when she wins the nomination....

    I tend to agree with Obama. It seems that there are a lot of Hillary haters out there and I think that she will cause a lot of people to "vote against her" rather than voting for someone they want.

    I would hate to see McCain win because it's "not her".

    I hope Obama gets the nomination for that reason. Hillary is a love her, hate her type of person and there isn't much middle ground

    Even the liberal media dumps on her (with good reason):

    the kid gloves were definitely on for hillary. did you see the favorable editing so it would look like she never stammered? i guess this was to offset the hard questions she got up front.

    i found the pennies/nickels story slightly more intriguing.

    I'm not bothered by that kind of interviewing. I knew that when Couric asked a question, Hillary probably took a few moments before answering it.

    I am sure Obama received the same treatment.

    I don't want Hillary as president, but it would be really, really funny to watch the drama queens freak out if she gets elected.

    Hitchens' "librul meedia" credentials were revoked a long time ago...
