    Hillary for President

    Obama for Vice-President

    This duo is too good to break apart.

    No I don't think Blitzer wants to see a fight, he might just come out and say that CNN supports Obama

    Whats up Wolf trying to evoke an arguement several times during the debate and even going to very unjournalistic waters and throwing the "naive" out there? I lost a lot of my opinion on you over that petty move!

    Hillary continues struggle with the Iraq question in comparison to Barack. This round and this issue clearly goes to Obama.

    whats up with all the celebrity camera crowd shots. I'm not sure if it is good for our image as dems to only see celebs in the crowd. maybe they got the invite? I live 5 blocks away from the Kodak, I wish I could have gone.

    The thinking that Hillary would not stand a chance against McCain is CRAZY! If as many people turn out for the election as did the primaries, the Democratic nomination will wipe the floor up with the Republican!

    Well , what I have seen so far tonight is they are both on the same page pretty much .
    But which one is going to have Vice in front of President .

    would be a much better debate without Wolf Blitzer

    Even Stevie Wonder can see Obama is better for America at this hour. We need a REAL uniter not a divider.

    Everyone SHOULD be critical of Blitzer. He's become a distraction to the debate.

    So what .... she has experience. Experience vs. judgment. Look forwards, not backwards

    Obama is such a great thinker .. I think he is the future of leadership in this country.

    "Naive." Talk about "naive." What about CNN and other parts of the news media at the time when the Iraq votes were being taken? Did they dig into the presentation by Colin Powell at the U.N. or deeply question the President's case?

    Government needs to stay out of the business of censorship!!

    Wow, Hillary just got a figurative punch in the mouth in that last segment. You could see after Obama's stance on the war, she knew that was a great answer, and was really go called off balanced. But she recovered nicely, but he really out doing her IMO.

    Someone Tell Wolf to ask them about $3.50/ gallon for gas. These high prices are killing me and my family.

    The 'Naive" question was out of line

    Obama is the best! Hillary would be great in a support role.

    Wolf is borde, he is wishing for a fight.

    If Hillary wins the primary then the Republicans will have another 4 years in the White House. Obama can win.

    Excellent debate without being nasty. However, almost every time CNN shows the audience applauding Barack, you show African-American supporters. Obama's supporters come from every race – including this retired 70+ white woman.
