Another night, another debate. And we’re not hearing anything different than we have before. The same argument over the health care plans of Senators Clinton and Obama that we’ve heard since the first debate in South Carolina 10 months ago. Yawn.
It’s amazing that the issues the people are concerned about, health care and financial security, were barely touched upon tonight. The debate covered no new ground and failed to give voters any new information to help them make a decision. The issues were abandoned tonight and instead we heard and saw clips of the candidates on the attack. This type of bickering only deflects from what’s really important- how these candidates are prepared to solve the challenges that are plaguing our nation.
I’m all for the candidates to have the opportunity to go on national television to talk about the issues. But come on… talk about the things people care about.
