Obama will get a standing ovation.

And I predict at least two gushing questions that repeatedly reference his time as a "community organizer".

Brit Hume implored the viewers to bare with us… the hosts are restricted by what they can ask. Brit was basically say, yeah, we know this is lame, but we gotta cover it. Sorry.

Are you watching it on FNC? They seem to be having audio problems these past few days. I’ll watch it on CNN to see if it’s duplicated on that channel as well.

high pitched beep?

Does this mean we’ll see Rush come out and ask some questions? :)

We’ll know if the Pretenders start playing.

No cone of silence so they're giving O plenty of time to prepare his answers.

My sister lives in Lower Manhattan, and witnessed the towers fall from her rooftop. My Stepmother was on a plane which took off from Logan on the morning of 9/11/01. Her flight was redirected to Canada, where she spent a couple of days before returning home. The time which passed before I had heard from both of them was an eternity. But my family and I were lucky. I don't feel that tonight is appropriate for a de facto debate. Tonight we should pause, pray, and reflect. This is in poor taste.

Unbelievable that they would cut the audio right at the point he was going to say Hanoi.

Good Judy got cut off too. Doesn’t she know that his sons are in the service????

Why do liberals keep asking for a draft?? Only to turn around and protest against it???

Those fuc-tards at Columbia and this audio deal.

OMG - he’s getting applause! And it’s when he chastised Columbia - they’ll let Ahmadinejad speak but kicked ROTC out.

I think he would rather be in a same sex union with himself.

This doofus looks and coupled with his speech to be very full of himself.

This is the lions den.

I bet the “community SERVICE organizer” bs gets played up.

Obama mentions Palin everyone takes a drink.

John McCain just b-slapped the question about more poor or people of color joining the military and McCain threw it back saying the Colleges and Universities need to let ROTC on campuses. He kicked their butts right back and he was right!!!

Unfortunately, yes.

I’m surprised that McCain seems to be rejecting the notion of “National Service”, and happy with his answers. He’s all for service, just not service directed by Federal Apparatchiks.

And he just got in a good zinger against Columbia when Woodruff asked him about why the US miliatary was having trouble recruiting “rich white doods”. McCain said basicially “Maybe it’s because rich white school like Columbia don’t allow ROTC on campus”. Got a round of applause from the audience!
