Thought folks might want a place to add their thoughts on the debate tonight from the Kodak Theater.
Both did well. I thought they were exceedingly (perhaps too) civil towards each other. They definitely seemed to be focused on the concerns of California voters – talking about the environment, global warming and immigration issues much more than before.
I do think both pandered a bit to Edwards supporters and Latino voters.
There seemed to be too many cutaways to the celebrities in the room. I didn’t tune in to see Pierce Brosnan, Diane Keaton or Jason Alexander trying to look thoughtful. Antonio Villaraigosa and Gavin Newsom had great seats, but I hear Congresswoman Jane Harman was stuck back in the cheap seats. Only in L.A.
I’m happy to vote fore either one in the fall.
