All Hillary, all the time

In a week featuring the anticipated CNN/YouTube GOP Debate, Hillary Clinton still managed to generate the bulk of campaign coverage, with stories ranging from her campaign's apparent slip into attack mode, to the all-important Barbra Streisand endorsement.

In a week featuring the anticipated CNN/YouTube GOP Debate, Hillary Clinton still managed to generate the bulk of campaign coverage, with stories ranging from her campaign's apparent slip into attack mode, to the all-important Barbra Streisand endorsement, to suggestions that a question chosen for the Republican debate from a retired general regarding gays in the military was “planted” by the Hillary camp. CNN disputes the plant. Now, topping all that, is the breaking news on the hostage-taking in Hillary's NH HQ.

On a non-Hillary note, the debate drew a relatively high number of viewers, or more than previous debates, anyway.

In the blogosphere post-debate, various right-leaning bloggers are complaining that the questions tended to focus on stereotypical Republican issues like guns and religion while failing to address many important policy issues such as healthcare and education. But for pure entertainment value, the debate got great reviews.

Elsewhere on the trail:

Possible CBS News writers strike prompts Dem debate cancellation.

Writers strike means no late-night TV jokes at candidates' expense.

New Web sites such as http://www.votehelp.org/ and http://www.votegopher.com/ go live for voters who need help deciding.
