First Thoughts: The Dem Debate  —  I was tempted to call this encounter a draw but I am mindful that there are no zero sum debates in presidential politics.  —  And twenty minutes of Iraq happened.  And so I'll give Obama the edge.  Clinton was forced, for about 20 minutes, to recapitulate her vote on Iraq, over and over again.

Christopher Hayes / The Nation:
The Choice  —  It's gotten to that time in the primary contest where lines are drawn, camps are solidified and conversations around dinner tables grow heated.  My friend Dan recently put it this way: “You start talking about the candidates, and next thing you know someone's crying!”
Discussion: Pandagon and Matthew Yglesias

Brad / Sadly, No!:
Depressingly stupid goddamn journalism  —  Dear Dr. Atrios.  I have a good Wanker of the Day nominee for you.  His name is Jake Tapper and he's (tragically) a senior national correspondent at ABC.  He's also apparently illiterate.  Check it: … Or perhaps you should actually read …

Rally for Romney  —  I have spent nearly four decades in the conservative movement — from precinct worker to the Reagan White House.  I campaigned for Reagan in 1976 and 1980.  I served in several top positions during the Reagan administration, including chief of staff to Attorney General Edwin Meese.

Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
Quick Sum Up  —  Some very quick thoughts.  The debate was a surprisingly substantive discussion of a number of issues that actually resonate in people's lives.  Which means it wasn't really anything like a political debate.  I thought both candidates had a good debate.
CNN:

Discussion: Prairie Weather
Victor Davis Hanson / The Corner:
The Non-Debate  —  If one studies carefully the Clintama answers on the war on terror, illegal immigration, and Iraq then the magnitude of Republican infighting seems surreal.  The gulf between Hillary and McCain is Grand-Canyon like.  This debate came down to Obama, talking in vague generalities …
Abe Greenwald / Commentary:
Obama's Muslim Summit  —  Reuters reports that if Barack Obama becomes President, he'll hold a summit with all leaders of Muslim countries: … Is he planning on doing this before or after bombing Pakistan?  Because that could have an effect on that gap he's talking about.
