    On Hillary's vote on the war, why isn't she asked why she didn't read the national intelligence report? And why isn't Wolf stopping the Hillary endless replies to every question? Under the Anderson Cooper debate, four Republicans got more questions than did two Democrats.

    I think Obama is giving Hillary a run for Presidency. We do need change. Obama demonstrates strength, leadership, and tools in order to run this country. The problems we have to consider is cleaning up the mess that our current President has put us in. God be with you Obama.

    Very grown up debate !! however, Obama is inflicting a paper cut death on Clinton…. very clever !

    ….. wolf is playing the devils advocate !! poor Hilary !! she's constantly trying to explain herself ..stumbling right left & centre… re: Iraq war .

    Killing Hilary softly
    Obama clearly the winner in this debate 🙂

    Finally we are getting to hear about the differences between the Democrats and the Republicans. I think that either of these two would make a fine president. We need someone who will reverse the disastrous policies of George W. Bush.

    I do not think this is a debate. I believe CNN is featuring and helping the democratic party display its' ticket for 2008. This is the reason John Edwards was told to get out of the race do this could happen tonight. Like John said do not worry about the son of a mill worker he will do just fine – and he will somewhere in maybe the Attorney General's chair.

    Obama continues to say he would have voted against the war... who even knows how he would have voted. That said, he has continued to support the funding for the war, can this man make up his mind or take a stand?

    Good job Obama and Clinton ! You both have had an outstanding debate. I truly believe that either of them would make a good president and would beat any Rebublican candidate.

    I am sorry, but CNN would do well to place better people in charge of the moderation of these debates. Wolf Blitzer should consider announcing wrestling. I find his need to lessen the quality of the debate at every utterance, repulsive and sad.

    Why is CNN refusing to ask questions about global warming? Is it because the coal industry is sponsoring the event? C'mon - both candidates referred to global warming in their opening statement and the moderators refuse to bring up the topic.

    Leave Bill alone! He isn't running for President, she is! Bill is his own man and his defense of his wife is what any husband would do!
