A few thoughts from the debate double-header:

  • Mitt Romney seems to have switched his strategy: “Vote for me because I can be Obama!”
  • Hillary Clinton also has switched hers: “Vote for me because I’m older than Obama!” (The “I’ve been making change for 35 years” line just doesn’t wash with me.)
  • None of the Republican candidates likes Ron Paul. All of them were stumbling over each other to be the first to declare that “Ron is wrong about” whatever topic is on the table.
  • The general Republican healthcare plan revolves around the deaths of everyone who can’t make “responsible” choices about healthcare.
  • Fred Thompson spent too much time in the tanning booth.
