Republican NH debates today

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4

Just starting to watch, but strong answer by Thompson around 13:30 in Part 1, despite his silly "Thompson, Tommy" intro.

Democratic NH debates from Sunday

Part 1 - http://www.cnn.com/video/player/player.html?url=/video/politics/2007/06/03/democratic.debate.part1.cnn

Part 3 - http://www.cnn.com/video/player/player.html?url=/video/politics/2007/06/03/democratic.debate.part3.cnn

Strong first answers by Obama, Clinton, and Biden all. At least the first part (which is what I watched so far) is recommended. I wish all candidates got equal time, but nonetheless it was good food for thought.

First topic in part 2 is the 700-mile immigration fence.

Interesting question and responses at 6:10 in part 2 too - "Raise your hand if you believe that English should be designated as the official language of the United States." I understand both sides, but I agree with Mike Gravel.

Part 2, 20:00-22:00, topic = "Don't ask don't tell" - strong responses by both Hillary and Biden.

Hoping I get more time to watch the rest of it.
