Mustang Bobby's Take On the Nelson-Harris Debate.

Mustang Bobby watched the debate so the rest of us don't have to. I have a feeling his post had more fireworks than Nelson or Harris.

Summary: There were no substantial questions or answers. This wasn't so much a debate as it was a joint press conference with questions that sounded like they were from the finalists in the junior high school journalism class. (At least no one asked them who their favorite Beatle was, but if they'd gone another half-hour, I wouldn't have ruled it out.) As far as appearances, both candidates looked like they were call-backs for the auditions for the re-make of The Addams Family: Lurch and Morticia, you're up.

I agree with Bobby on Nelson's vote for the Military Commissions Act. It's inexcusable. Nelson's attempt to straddle the fence will turn out like his vote to intervene in the Terri Schiavo matter.

On Schiavo, Nelson said, "I thought I was bringing the matter to a close."
