Live Blog-The Final Debate?

Ok final stretch, I believe there is about 15-20 minutes left in this debate, Obama seemed to waffles on his stance about Public Financing but it doesn't appear to make too much of a difference, again Clinton doesn't attempt to hit Obama low at all. Obama still wins if it is a tie.

1st question Obama-W00t Hillary!

Obama's voting record more liberal than Teddy Kennedy. How will he unify country with such a record?

Obama says these ratings are silly. Gives example of something he thinks isn't liberal but was graded as liberal.

'The proof is in the pudding"- gross


Hillary-Putin's successor is hand-picked. Clever but transparent way for Putin to hold onto power. Hammers Bush's Russian policy. She butchers his name, finishes it with "whatever" I hear a war already starting.

Obama-Bush neglected relationship with Russia as they centralized power. Have to change stances on human rights, etc.

Obama slurping the Clinton Administration about the work done in the Balkans.

Careers in Public Serive, any vote you want back?

Hillary-wants the Iraq vote back...no shit Sherlock
Hillary spreads her foreign policy wings, Darfur, Middle East, Central America

Obama-Terri Schiavo, wishes to have done something about that situation to stop government intervention.
Obama throws some love Hillary's way "she has campaigned magnificently". He loves her, he wants to kissss her.

Closing Questions(Obama goes 1st)

What question must Hillary answer to prove worthiness of nominee?

Obama side steps it, says she is already qualified but he thinks he can do better, spends rest of his time connecting McCain to Bush. He says he is better because he can bring America together in a unique way.

What question must Barack answer to prove worthiness of nominee?

She also side-steps it, says seating a women as President would be a big change. She says her experience is what makes her a better candidate. She is finishing on a soft note, must be going after those women who have left her, Obama split them with her 50-50 in the most recent primaries.

Well that is it. Overall I thought the debate was fairly boring and that means Obama wins. It was interesting to see how she played out each topic never really going after him. Keith Olbermann just said "it looks like they were scoring field goals not touchdowns" I completely agree. Now we will just have to wait and see. 1 week until the next Primaries, what some are calling Mini-Tuesday.

Obama said, Terri Schiavo was a mistake!

How sad!
