AFL-CIO Debate

I have to admit, I haven't gotten to watch the debate yet, but if the rest of it went as well as the Pakistan discussion did, it is clear that Senator Obama won. Crooks and Liars has video that truly is "must see".

The most heated moments from tonight's AFL-CIO forum came when the topic turned to Senator Barack Obama and his claim for the last debate that he would invade Pakistan to fight terrorism, even without permission from President Pervez Musharraf. Senator Chris Dodd was asked about his critical response to Obama's statements and reiterates his criticism and things get going from there. Obama stands his ground and jabs Dodd and Clinton for voting for the invasion of Iraq, then turning around and attacking him "for making sure we are on the right battlefield, and not the wrong battlefield in the war against terrorism," which drew huge applause from the audience.


Senator Clinton once again attacked Obama on this issue which didn't go over well with the crowd…

I'd love to know what you think of the debate. Please write your thoughts in the comments, or post links to video clips or to your own blogs.

P.S. I think it's entirely possible that Hillary was guided by Our Lord to say exactly what she meant just this once. :)
