    She gave the same answer. "I'll post it on my website". What a tart.

    Invoking Sarah Palin's name as a put down. Ted Turner created, & Red Jane Fonda shaped SheNN isn't biased against Conservatives or anything...

    Neither could Coon's. He only repeated something they already discussed.

    O’Donnell came across as well coached but ill informed

    Why would that matter? Could Coons? Oh wait I'm sure he got a copy of the questions prior to the debate. Coon wins anyway this whole thing is a waste of time and resources. Should have had SNL do the debate.

    Why would anyone expect her to answer that sort of question?

    O'Donnell like Palin, is a cute face, nice hair and no substance. Neither one of these women could represent this woman. They are puppets/parrots/no originality.

    This was another evidence that she is a sham – a clown masquerading as a public servant. Wake up Delaware! You deserve someone much better than ODonnel.l

    It might have helped if someone had explained to her what the Supreme Court is. Why waste her time anywaywith senseless "Gotcha" questions? LOL

    There are a few races around the country that I hope will be won by Democrats, although I am a staunch Republican. The O'Donnell Affair is one.
    Candidates like O'Donnell could only have gotten on ballots as expected reactions to the unbelievable incompetence of President Obama.
    I had hoped he would do well in office: who would have dreamed that President Obama could have failed THIS miserably.
    Of course, the nation's reaction is going to include some O'Donnells and Angles as a result of Obama's bottom.

    The reason why Christine and other conservatives couldn't name one is because the Supreme Court hasn't been an issue for them. Thank you John Roberts!
