Are You Ready for Another Debate?
This is all happening kind of quickly now. Election Day will be here soon.
Two reactions on Saturday night's debate that pretty much convey the thinking here are at The Pulse Blog and VolunteerVoters.com. At one point -- I think it was during Harold Ford Jr.'s laundry list of "conservative" positions -- the wife turned to me and bemoaned the lack of someone to vote for in this race. Almost every account I've read talked about Ford's glaring shallowness as time in the same spot forced him to recycle bits of smooth, and about Corker's contrasting easy, collected demeanor.
There were few differences expressed on issues, but that's to be expected in this one.
The disembodied voice of Congressman Ford lands in our answering machine every day as Chattanooga gears up for the next round. I'll be reading your thoughts, whether I find the time to write my own or not.
