John Edwards' name makes an early appearance in Obama’s very first sentence on-stage tonight. Both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will be looking to attract John Edwards supporters tonight – watch for how often they mention poverty.

    it's not just poverty, you all! serious universal health care, global warming and no new nuclear power, getting us out of iraq (really), poverty here and globally (global poverty is a moral issue and a security issue), the labor movement, lordy, none of the others have these, and i don't see them getting them.

    but either way, the best laid plans will go nowhere without the real base of edwards' platform, govt. reform, ie. kicking the lobbyists' butts.

    still voting for edwards. we couldn't make edwards into a woman, or make him black, but i'd really like to see h or o turn themselves into john edwards. fat chance of that!

    I am all for Hillary. Have been since she was First Lady. I love her straightforwardness, her articulation, her vision and her values of forgiveness and to move forward.

    Good debate tonight, I love both of them, but Hillary still my first choice. I hope she will be a first women's president of the USA.

    While Barack is bright and an excellent speaker, he needs some time to mature.

    I believe Obama is the clear victor! What good is it to have 35 years of experience if you can`t have it right on day 1?
    Go OBAMA!
