    I can't believe I have to watch this political MESS between 2 lying politicians versus the continuous rescue of 33 miners. Please stop wasting our time with this embarrasement to the United States and go back to showing the miraculous rescue.

    She is simply clouding the issues with offbeat attacks because she does not know how to answer the actual question at hand. And that fake smile has to go.

    If O'Donnell is the best republican teaprty has to offer, well good luck with that one!
    It seemed hard to believe anyone could surpass Palin on vague, uninformed, deer-in-the headlights answers...but O"Donnell has done it.

    Resorting to SNL as a means to save herself, pretty pathetic!

    Wolf – Please make Ms. O'donnell answer the evolution question. It's ridiculous that she was able avoid the question. Please demand a "yes" or "no." We deserve to know. Thank you.

    Yes, being portrayed as an SNL caricature. The true measure of a political candidates competency.

    It's such a shame to see American people choosing leaders like O'donell. I can only imagine how frustrating it was for a person with actual intellligence to have to debate with someone like her who is cleary not on his level. What a waste of time to even listen to her nonsense!

    Watching the Delaware Debate, certaintly was blatant why CNN is in trouble, the blatant treatment of the candidates was obvious. Wolf Blitzer wags his finger at O'Donnell, The Female moderator was very condesending , and always interrupted O"Donnell. She should never be allowed to be a moderator again. Coons was addressed as he was an adult and in charge, Coons was always allowed to interrupt, given more time, and behaved as a bully and not held to answering the question. Shame on you CNN, it's time for non partisan journalism, Step up to the plate and DO YOUR JOB, we don't need your feelings, opinions, JUST the truth , When was the last time the news, debate etc was objective , we the people are intellegent enough to make our own opinion, Thank You. CNN what are you thinking hiring Spitzer, good luck

    I was frankly flabbergasted at Christine O'Donnell in this debate. Among many other incorrect remarks,she actually said that pharmacies bill dead people for services. WHAT?!!? I've been a pharmacist for a long time, and I've never seen that happen, and have never heard someone even say that before. It's clear to me that this candidate has been poorly prepped by whomever was hired to do so. I'm glad she's not trying to represent my state (Georgia). I hope CNN calls her to task on the many, many misstatements she made tonight.
