Now, on to tonight’s democratic debate in Nevada.
Kucinich lost a last minute battle right before the MSNBC democratic debate tonight. The Michigan Supreme Court apparently ruled that NBC can block out Kucinich from participating in the televised debate in Nevada after his poor performances in the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary. This came a day after the lower-court ordered NBC on Monday to include Kucinich in the debate, only for the Michigan Supreme court to overturn it right before the debate. That has got to be the oddest thing I have heard. The whole point of a debate is so people can hear everyone’s points of view and to revoke a candidate’s right to do that and block him out is just ludicrous.
Aside from that, the debate was okay. Clinton and Obama called a truce earlier today, so there wasn’t any heated moments in the debate. Edwards had to address the issue of competing against the first viable African American and the first viable women, and he handled the question very well. I liked the idea of each candidate asking a question to one of the other candidates, even though the questions were not too great.
P.S. Happy Birthday Ayaz! 🙂
