    it's sickening to see how this debate allows clapping and cheering, and clearly the moderators favor Clinton over Obama.

    Great Question. I have had my fill of hearing about a Clinton. I'm from Buffalo, NY. Hillary did nothing for NY state and she will do nothing for our country.

    Senator Clinton, How many times can you use that line about the Clintons cleaning up after the Bushes?

    Ask Barack,

    Why do you think our standing in the world has gone down – particularly with the French that have a much better opinion of us now than over the last 25 years.

    Hillary talks too much about how oppositional she feels towards Republicans. That is just a huge turn off.

    David has a good point. If we go back far enough, we are all related. That's an irrelevant argument.

    BEST LINE EVER! Took a Clinton to clean up after the first Bush, and it will take a Clinton to clean up after the second one.

    I am so proud to be a Democrat-compared to last night's Republican brawl this is an exercise in clear and intelligent debate. Hillary and Barack are presenting a great picture of America to the rest of the world. What a powerful ticket Obama/Clinton or Clinton/Obama would make!

    OMG!!! CANNOT BELIEVE she just said what other people were thinking!
    I agree, it'll take a while to fix what the Bush's did to this country.

    To Luke: I am in Costa Rica and people here are very helpful when they see me trying to learn Spanish .... AND museum signs are written in both Spanish AND English - demonstrating that "gringos' are welcome here, unlike some of the mean-spirited "English is the official language of the U.S." - how self-centered of some Americans.

    Senator Clinton if you were to be in office, would you want revenge on the people who tried to impeach your husband?
