here's a good rehash of the debates, with details and links and stuff. I suppose there are scads of bloggers cogitating and writing upon the debates. I aint up on the mall but this one works for me. I have to keep reminding myself that respecting the candidate (like I respect, say, the Dalai Lama) is not a necessity. I recognize that something's gotta move. the only president I think I admire as a person is Jimmy Carter, and it's not like I want to buy his next poetry book. just that I think he's an okay guy, as opposed to the various forms of sludge that followed him. and it's not to say he was a particularly good president, I dunno from that. all of them presided over some manner of imperialism in the great green world out there. maybe there's something basically wrong in our national concepts, or what.
