Debate! Debate!

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton go to Hollywood.

Oooh, Hillary is already cackling. She should stop doing that.

Obama gets the first chance to speak and the first chance to suck up to John Edwards.

Notice, no white men on the stage (candidates, I mean).

Obama lies and says he's friends with Hillary Clinton... Obama defines the campaign again as past versus future. If he can stay on that note tonight, and not get flustered, he'll do himself a favor.

Oh, my, it's a love fest... Oh, wait, here comes the Clinton experience line to counter the Obama change line.

The key to this debate will be which of these two narratives dominate. Does the tone remain about inspiration or experience?
