Just Another "Duh"- Bate: The Dems Point Fingers

The three Democratic presidential front-runners last night took turns jabbing one another and President Bush, with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton blaming the Iraq war on the president and a tense exchange between Sen. Barack Obama and former Sen. John Edwards.

The second debate of the 2008 White House hopefuls allowed the front-runners to differentiate themselves, but it also gave the lesser-known candidates a chance to outline their plans for the country.

Mr. Edwards, of North Carolina, has pressured his rivals to cut off funding for the war. He says the recent Democratic Iraq war spending bill was a "moment of truth" and accused Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Obama of "standing quiet" instead of taking a stand on Iraq.

"It's the difference between leading and following," Mr. Edwards said during the debate, held in New Hampshire and televised nationally on CNN. "All of us have a responsibility to lead ... not just on Iraq, but on health care, on energy, on all the other issues."

Among the 2008 Democratic hopefuls, Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Obama voted against the funding bill, as did Sen. Christopher J. Dodd of Connecticut and Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich of Ohio.

"I opposed this war from the start," Mr. Obama, of Illinois, fired back at Mr. Edwards, adding: "You're about 4? years late on leadership on this issue. It's important not to play politics on something that is as critical and as difficult as this."

... the only positive thing for the Repubs is that these Dems are such idiots! I guess that cancels both groups out?

Exactly right, Bro! Getting rid of the RNC and DNC should be a prime objective!
