Round 3: Debate Day

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

John's last best chance for ANYTHING arrives in about 17 hours.

If you don't want to watch alone, there are a lot of debate watching parties going on across the country. Click here to find your local event. I watched the last debate, and the veep debate with the campaign kid field organizer who is living in my house. For the veep debate, we kept track of serious errors, and we both went apoplectic over the Constitutional misstatements. Somehow, it wasn't quite "physical" enough for us. So, for the last presidential debate, we had these little dried vegetable things. When we got REALLY angry, we threw them at the TV. As they would bounce off, Olivia would chase them. Happy political junkies, happy dog. It worked well.

Tonight, Rob and I will be at our local event. We have people coming an hour early so we can review the local plans for the next several weeks, and enthuse even more people to work on election day. Remember, the polls only matter if we get our voters out. Please consider taking the day off and helping out. (End shameless plug.)

Will this be brought up at the debate tonight? Ohio has until Friday to have a new procedure in place to validate newly-registered voters.
