Do agree or disagree? Who's making the most persuasive arguments? Are they addressing the issues or just being combative? Who's dodging the questions? What would you ask the candidates?

    before we hit the content...why does it look like they are parents sitting at grade school desks...kind of like parents at 5th grade parent night.

    I also hope that they can focus on the issues rather then bickering with each other.

    Obama holds chair for Hillary. Is he trying to marginalize the female candidate or make up for the state of the union snub? Am I just cynical and he just was being nice?

    First why did Obama present first. I trust that economic questions are asked. Also I trust that Wolf will step in and keep this directed on the questions at hand.

    I'm guessing change will be mentioned 53 times.

    Hillary again says she can do something on day one. I'm sure she can do something. It just won't be the right thing.

    I couldn't agree more with Gina. I always liked CNN but find it harder each day with the level of bias they can't seem to keep out of their reports. Please. Be objective and unbiased. It is not our place to distort or lead people to your conclusions. Let the people listen to the candidates and make up their own minds.

    Not a big fan of Hillary's pantsuits!

    Bottom line: Hillary is a wolf in sheeps clothing. We need fresh faces in politics.

    Let us not be divisive. Let us enjoy the dialogue and conversation

    I think he was being nice...someone has held the chair each time...we are getting cynical

    Hillary is doing a great job. She is showing great leadership and looks and sounds very presidential. He has a strong message and actually looks happy to be there.

    I would like to know if either candidate has promised jobs to anyone that has endorsed them. I was for one to begin with and now I am undecided.

    Hillary's comments had some substance. Barak is all about rhetoric.
