Live, it's Saturday Night?

Sixteen minutes into the debate, Brian Williams is having trouble shifting the debate off of health care.

Then bam, Hillary Clinton brings up the Saturday Night Live skit in which anchors coddled a fictional Barack Obama.

"Well, could I just point out that in the last several debates, I seem to get the first question all the time. And I don't mind. I'll be happy to field them but I do find it curious and if anyone saw Saturday Night Live, you know, maybe we should ask Barack if he's comfortable and needs another pillow,'' Clinton said. "I just find it curious that I keep getting the first question on all of these issues, but I'm happy to answer it."

"I have been a critic of NAFTA from the very beginning," she said, saying we can renegotiate the agreement within six months. Obama agreed with her.

Upstate New York, Youngstown and Toledo are among parts of the country that have not benefitted from NAFTA, Clinton said. "You don't have all the record."

I think its absolutely ridiculous that this women actually referred to a skit on SNL during her debate. She is whining about why she is being asked questions first, give me a break. That to me came off as petty and trite. Who cares who gets the questions first as long as you give an appropriate answer. I am a Hillary supporter, and now I have had enough. Her complaining does not come off very presidential at all. She is sounding desparate at this point. I know a lot of my fellow Hillary supporters won't agree, but it is what it is. I don't know who the hell to vote for at this point.

Both Hillary and Obama are playing the American people for ignorant fools who will buy into any promise that sounds good. Then again, I guess that's been politics since the beginning of time.

Nice to hear though topics of discussion actually do get vetted. Unlike any I've seen from the fear baiting McCarthyites.
