I think he did a great job. I really don't understand why he hasn't gotten more support.

I think Clark and Sharpton were in the next tier. Good answers (Sharpton is always funny and sharp), nothing out-of-the-ordinary or unexpected with respect to their previous positions or personae.

Dean, Gephardt and Kerry were OK, but IMO they hurt themselves by fighting with each other. Fights like those tend to slightly increase each person's positives, but the negatives increase even more.

Graham, Kucinich, Lieberman and Mosely-Braun, I had no real opinion of. Graham just doesn't inspire me, he's a perfectly nice man with perfectly good positions, but there's just something missing there, IMO. Kucinich, I really liked at first, but I started to get tired of, "I'm the only one in this race who..." Lieberman, I just couldn't pay much attention to. Mosely-Braun was treated very poorly, IMO, she was practically ignored by the moderators. I think the questions she did answer were good, though.

I would very much like to see the top five or top three in a debate together, just so they could get more face time.

Regardless, all are much better than Bush, and all would make fine Presidents. With a few notable exceptions, I think most of their policies are pretty generic Dem, in other words, good, similar, solid and safe positions to take.
