Potential presidents en masse
One has to say they are a pretty classy line-up - the Democrats vying for presidential nomination. There they were on TV tonight - not so much a debate as an interrogation. However Kucinich did take it upon himself to snipe at Howard Dean, a hint of debate perhaps. Dean, I think, was strong and gracious and came out on top of that little spat. Kucinich was showing his insecurity at the sizzling Dean lead. But it is early days. Although John Kerry did a spot of the classic politician sidestepping of direct questions, he continued to impress as the most statesmanlike of the bunch - and the only one brave enough to crack a few jokes.
