Debate: Democrats meet for final pre-vote bout

DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) - Most polls indicate that Democrats are more energized than Republicans about the 2008 election and their current crop of White House hopefuls. And if the crowds outside the debate site here at the Maytag Auditorium in suburban Des Moines are any indication, those polls are correct.

An unofficial count shows that there are far more supporters of the various Democratic candidates outside in the snow today than there were for their
Republican counterparts yesterday. And they seem to be much more vocal.

That’s the show outside as the last Democratic presidential debate in Iowa before the January 3 caucuses gets underway inside.

    I think Hillary really stood out again, She does well next to the others, didnt think obama did too well next to the other more experienced candidates. I agree he does better alone.
