I Thought Dean and Graham Were Great on "Larry King Live"
Edited on Mon Aug-04-03 09:58 PM by Composed Thinker
While I didn't think Dean's performance on "MTP" was a disaster, it also wasn't great. I thought he was much better tonight. He was firm, but not overly caustic. He seemed to focus more on his vision than bashing the president. And Graham reaffirmed a lot of Dean's points while showing that he's knowledgeable. Does anyone else agree with me?

1. Both did well, neither blew it away
Dean looked nervous, but spoke well.

Graham did well, although I've seen him do better. He did mention the "rhetoric" about homeland security which has not been backed up by funding and support.

4. And
keep in mind that Graham authored the National Seaport Security Act, it is a very big interest of his, particularly as a Floridian, for we have so many ports thanks to our peninsula geography

I think a majority of Americans would agree that more dollars need to be spent on homeland security

2. I agree. They performed well enough to score some good points.
I think they both helped themselves. That's all you can ask for.

3. overly or not overly? Is that a typo?

The tone and sentence makes me think that you forgot the "not".

6. Shouldn't this be in GD? Hate to be a snivelling hall-monitor but
...there seems to be a lot of inappropriate stuff in "Editorials" all of a sudden. It's annoying when you can't rely on being led to an actual, published editorial, which is what this forum is for, as opposed to just another GD-type discussion.

7. An explanation
When I came down and decided to post, the GD section wasn't up. I wasn't looking very carefully, though, so I posted both in this section and the editorial section before noticing it was gone.

9. I thought both did very well too
and I slapped my thigh when Graham said "Osama bin Forgotten". Go Bob go!! He'd make a good running mate I think.

10. Running Mate
I was very intrigued by Dean's response to who might be his running mate. While he said it would be pretty arrogant to be deciding that now, he did say that he wants somone with Washington experience (to help him navigate the political scene), and preferrably, a southerner.

Hmmm. Graham? Edwards, perhaps?

11. "Larry, I am the center..."
That was a telling moment for me. When Dean explained that the Repubs and many Dems in our own Party had gone too far to the right. So naturally, he is left of them even if he is in the center, which is true.
