Dems Debate . . . .

So, after watching the whole thing, Dennis Kucinich is still the one that most accurately represents our values. Too bad he's got a snowball's chance in hell of getting the nomination. Number two is Mike Gravel, who does a good job of pointing out the crap the "mainstream" candidates and the political process have provided us over the years, but doesn't articulate what he'd do to correct the situation.

Biden came across as the pragmatic, thoughtful one.

The three "front-runners" were all playing it safe and were generally not very inspiring.
I really hope future debates do not attempt to cut out the minor candidates as they are the only voice for real change in the system.

Looks like the bottom line is: The dems will screw us a bit less than the repugs . . . . . Is that enough of a reason to give them power?

Ah, for a proportional representation system in the US . . . .
