    Why does the camera-person keep showing shots of celebrities – I really DO NOT care if Pierce Brosnan is sitting in the audience!!!!

    Hillary is doing a great job – she can handle those tougher questions much better the Obama...

    I am very impressed with Ms. Clinton. Her confidence, poise, intellect, graciousness, strength, command of the issues and personable demeanor show strength of character and leadership. She's doing a great job!

    Why won't they talk about education? Clinton keeps bringing up Bush's failure, but I want to see No Child Left Behind fixed! I am a student, and my mother is a teacher, so this is important and relevant!

    I think they would be an unstopable powerhouse if the winning party picked the other one as their running mate! GO DEMS!!!!!!

    I loved that statement!! "It took a Clinton to clean up after the first Bush and it needs a Clinton to clean up after this one."

    Why are you asking such useless questions like, " Why should the people elect you"? There is no substance and it allows for any issues that they want to raise.

    Why not ask about the cost of for profit health care? 30% goes for overhead and profit. Eliminate this and healthcare would be affordable.

    I can not believe they just asked senator clinton about the endorsement of the kennedys for obama. who cares about them and all their millions. i may have only been able to send hillary's campaign a few dollars, but no one is going to ask barack about me! GO HILLARY.

    As Lou Dobbs pointed in Moneyline, that Senator Clinton is using Tech companies as ATM.

    So to return their favor, will she let more jobs go overseas.

    How will she defend that jobs will stay in US?

    Crap. Just crap. This cleaning up after the second Bush line is catchy but loosing its effectiveness. It's difficult to play the role of change agent when you are squarely entrenched in the Washington political machine.

    You're the wife of the former President!! How can you say that is not an advantage? Surely she doesn't believe that she and Barack started at the same place. Come on Hillary! Don't insult our intelligence!

    Barack is holding his own tonight. I think he's doing very well. BARACK '08.

    Obama in '08!!!

    We can't wait to see you in the Edwards Jones Dome this Saturday in St. Louis...

    I don't think Clinton will be able to work with the GOP as good as Obama

    50 points for Hilary...the first Clinton had to clean up after Bush Senior and another Clinton needs to clean up after GWB...nice!

    I'm sick and tired of watching Wolf Blitzer interrupt Hillary but letting Barach go on and on. At least be fair Wolf!

    Clinton takes every opportunity at an easy applause line. It's nauseating.

    The Republicans will eat Barack alive. I do like him, but he just doesn't have the experience he needs to run the country.

    I love them both. Let's get them on the same ticket...
