JUST IN: Dec. 10 Democratic Debate Cancelled
Edited on Wed Nov-28-07 04:48 PM by TeamJordan23
Just saw on CNN. DNC cancelled it because of the writers strike.

1. Dang! I was going to go to this - well not go inside but rally outside
But good for the candidates for not crossing the picket line.

3. NPR is hosting a Dem debate on the 4th (next Tuesday)
so I do think this cancellation is legit.

4. Because the republicans will be doing sprints
to see who can cross the picket line the fastest. It's worth at least ten points in the polls.

8. Republicans would walk over the bloody corpses of union members for a photo-op
They probably hired Fox News scabs for this one tonight.

9. Because the Reps don't care about the strike?

10. It depends on where it will be held. The debate on the 10th was to be at CBS studios
in Los Angeles, where there are strikers everyday. I don't think all debates are actually held at studios - some are at colleges or other halls.

6. I must be on a very different wavelength than a lot of people
Frankly the writers' strike hasn't affected me in any way.

7. Here's the schedule I found;
December 13, 2007: Democratic presidential debate sponsored by Des Moines Register and IPTV, Johnston, IA
December 17, 2007: CNN and Politico.com host a Democratic presidential debate at the Kennedy Library in Boston

Neither date matches.

12. Good for them. They are establishing a strong pattern now...
of not crossing picket lines.

Good.
