Tonight the grownup will not be in the room. John Edwards is at the Carolina v. Boston College game with his daughter Cate. The first debate without JRE brings all sorts of questions to mind. Will Clinton and Obama get snippy with each other? Will the debate have any substance? Will the pundits annoy the ever loving daylights out of us? Will I actually start liking one of the remaining candidates? Does it matter? The nominee will be selected long before our primary in North Carolina and I will most certainly vote for the eventual nominee. I don't have to like him or her.
So, let the debate begin. Maybe, just maybe those of us who are undecided or who don't think we like either one will get a chance to see something new tonight. I hope so.
