Darn, missed it. Did she get a word in with Hannity talking about himself or his opinions?

Hannity shut up and let her talk. He asked her straightforward questions about the personal attack stuff without a lot of editorializing within the question.

I was surprised at how at ease she was. The lady is not afraid. She needs to continue staying on message while her opponent, Little Che’, attacks her personally. I probably have more faith in the voters than I should have but I still believe she can beat the goateed, commie Marxist boy.

Yes, she did better in her presentation.

I was not completely satisfied with her answer on her finances.

I work for lawyers who do pro bono work.

AGreed and I was critical of her based on the stuff swirling around.

But she is polished, poised, geniune, articulate and bright. SHe comes across as honest, balanced and rational. Thoughtful. She is a good candidate actually better than Palin was at her early appearances.

She needs to keep answering charges the way she did tonight. She answered what was asked, did it in a firm way.

I like her confidence and soft manner. I think she can win.

Dang, I missed it, and won’t be awake to watch the rerun.

Did she talk about her ex boyfriend being an entertainment lawyer, and the snarky rumors about her wanting to get on Fox?

I agree. She stressed that she would not support any lawmaking that wasn't grounded in the Constitution and that nothing else would be her criterion for law. ALL politicians should have to pledge that before even being accepted into the GOP.

It was great. Non confrontational.

She answered questions about 2008 and the house with more detail than I’d heard before. Must defend poor Terri Schiavo type person - right thing to do even though I lose money. Must try to beat Biden - right think to do even though I lose money.

Also, she seems to be targeting people who like “nonprofits” - she said that word a few times.

I saw the last part of it, and she was quite poised. Her thoughts were clear and she seemed very professional.

I have taped it and will check out the whole interview later.

She said she has some first rate pros coming in to help.

I hope they weren’t referred by the RNC.

Christine effectly shot down all the nonsense surrounding her personally. But, she did better than that.

1) She correctly pointed out that she is right on the issues, her candidate doesn’t want to talk about issues at all, however, she does.

2) She’s not going to do the national media, she’s going back to Delaware and attend every church social, every town hall, every local event she can attend and meet with the local people (and local media). Delaware is a unique state she said, I can be in all counties in a single day.

3) She was very well spoken, articulate, knows the issues. She’s a tiger.

Go Christine !!

O'Donnell needs to tie Rove to Coons.

Attack Coons and call him a socialist. Also mention that Karl Rove supports him. People in Delaware do not like Karl Rove.

Dana Perino speaking about the media bias against O'Donnell and in general, and them not speaking about the Marxist Coons:

"That's the way it is you have to accept it".

No Dana, you confront them on their nonsense.

I will be at that “ladies luncheon” she referred to.

It’s the monthly luncheon of the Sussex County Republican Woman’s Club. She really had to be there.

How much pro bono work can one do to not meet their personal obligations?

I've never seen any pro bono work on any case that would take so much time for this to happen.

Another incomplete answer by her.

Agree with assessment...and if I was a bit more of a conspiracist, I’d wonder why she’s being targeted with tax audits and mistaken tax liens, especially since she obviously doesn’t make much money. Is she too much of a threat to some establishment types?

“Got anything you want me to ask Christine?”

No, but you can tell her she brought me to tears twice during Hanity and the whole family was riveted. I thought she was awesome. Too bad I don’t live in Delaware, but I’m glad I contributed to her campaign. After that interview, I hope Rove, Krauthammer and Perino disappear from view.

Well hiya CG....

I gave you a hard time on a thread the other day. Must say I am glad you watched Christine and doubly glad you liked what you saw.

Folks, do NOT dismiss as pooh pooh that how a candidate presents is not important. Christine O'Donnell is a very, very nice person, a devout Christian. She speaks very well and has a wonderful smile.

So okay, it's just a smile. Hey, we understand the importance of sincere and bright smiles out here in la la land. Let us compare Christine's smile to say, Lisa Murkowski. Or, I'll throw it out there, the bright sunshine smile of a Karl Rove or Charles Krauthammer.

Christine will be liked and admired way more than that communist midget from New Castle county...just give her a chance.

Below, a couple of pics. One is me in 2005 with Christine, the other is with my granddaughter from this past July.

Taking the liberty to provide some local Blogs to better follow this most important Delaware Senatorial contest.

Most read Blog in Delaware

This Blog, due to its longevity and its origins by a former head of the Sussex county Republican party, is the most well read Blog in Delaware, at least in Sussex county.

I, myself, am a frequent commenter there and I can't go anywhere where people don't know my name. I am not necessary proud of that but I do jump in and I emphasize, the beauty of this Blog is in the comments.

Simply Fayth

Fay Voshell is also a freqent commenter on Delawarepolitics.net. She has a splendid Bill Buckley kind of writing style and is conservative politically.

Politically Frank

Frank is a poster on Delawarepolitics.net who is quite controversial. He is a frequent caller to the local yokel talk radio and last week he got through to Rush right before the election. He spoke at length with Rush about Mike Castle and his questionable affiliations. I'd like to see Frank as the next head of the Sussex county GOP.

Slaven Says.

Here is also a frequent commenter on Delawarepolitics.net, very conservative, posts on his Blog fairly regularly, works on the O'Donnell campaign.

WGMD.

The local Sussex county talk radio link, extremely conservative, home to the infamous Dan Gaffney, strange dude and interviewer who tried to deliberately harass and derail Christine O'Donnell leading up to her campaign.

I'm not the one snarking at conservatives on every thread.

I work for lawyers who do pro bono work.

Good for you, you want a cookie?

How much pro bono work can one do to not meet their personal obligations?

No one apparently had any problem with it in her two previous races. Why are they focused on it now?

I've never seen any pro bono work on any case that would take so much time for this to happen.

But if she was a moderate Republican you wouldn't care.

Another incomplete answer by her.

Wrong, she gave a complete answer.

There was no appearance of any mud sticking to her. Nice cool calm collected polished, looked great sounded great, improved her 2008 answer. Just had to save the lady for free. The right thing to do.

She could polish up a little bit on “the constitution”. She isn’t a “real” Limited Constitutional Government tea partier.

She does come from a socon background, and she, rightly, is indicating that she doesn’t want to make this campaign a referendum on things like masturbation, witchcraft, gay marriage, abortion, etc. The socons know she’s their spokesperson going forward, but they know that she now just has to do the boring stuff like every other Republican out there.

She could spend a little bit of time really getting to know exactly how to say the fedgov does a lot of stuff that the US Constitution really doesn’t allow.

She doesn’t need to have a long list of departments she’d abolish, but a sentence or 2 indicating that she does have a philosophical grasp of this stuff. The Constitution Limits the power of the Federal Government. The Government does less, the people do more etc.

There was also a direct shot at O'Reilly there too. Hannity mentions that "others are promising to show old videos too" and Christine responds "Well, that's not a promise it's a direct threat and, well, let 'em."

She smacked down the bloviating buffoon BOR very neatly.

I thought she did a great job on the 2008 house issue.

1) Helping the Terri Schiavo of Delaware. I didn’t know that. Wow, good stuff. It doesn’t pay the money, but it’s the right thing to do.

2) She had to oppose Biden. It’s not bringing in money like a paying client, but it’s the right thing to do.

In both cases, she chose doing the right thing over making money. A good person.

Time for you to grow up and act like an adult and address people correctly and respectfully.

Her answer was still a little bit complete, because we’re talking about a period of years, not just a short amount of time.

And, like I said, she did good. Too much “for the people of Delaware” simply because we’re talking about the United States Senate and a majority.

She was still fairly dismissive of Christine, echoing the “we need answers” meme.

Hugely bummed about her RINOism.
