Democrats Debate in Texas-OPEN THREAD DISCUSSION

10 years ago

Texas Showdown. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama face off in Austin at a debate sponsored by CNN, Univision and the Texas Democratic Party, from 8 to 9:30 p.m. ET. CNN will provide a live stream online if you are not in front of your tv.

Texas BlogHers are stepping into the fray with commentary leading up to the main event.

In the Pink Texas blogs the effect the Obama/Clinton race has on marriages, "Pink Lady, I’m with you. I’m for Hillary. I’ll say it. Let’s get this out of the way: my husband is for Obama. There are some intellectual reasons for his support, but mostly he has a fraternity-style man crush on the guy. And he doesn’t even see it, which is really maddening. And to counter us 'canceling each other out,' he’s making phone calls for the Obama Campaign. Don’t get me started on why he might have time to do this and why I might not for the Hillary campaign (married, working mother of two that I am). My support for Hillary has to do with loyalty and experience."

At TexasMonthy.com, Evan Smith recalls Molly Ivins anti-Clinton sentiment, "I just came across this column, written almost a year, to the day, before she died, offering the opposite of an endorsement."

The Ivins' article goes on to say, "I'd like to make it clear to the people who run the Democratic Party that I will not support Hillary Clinton for president. Enough. Enough triangulation, calculation and equivocation. Enough clever straddling, enough not offending anyone This is not a Dick Morris election. Sen. Clinton is apparently incapable of taking a clear stand on the war in Iraq, and that alone is enough to disqualify her. Her failure to speak out on Terri Schiavo, not to mention that gross pandering on flag-burning, are just contemptible little dodges."

Liza at Culture Kitchen has results of a pre-debate Texas poll and the MOMocrats founding editors are at a blogging event with Julie Pippert slated to blog tonight's showdown over at Momocrats
