Democrats to Debate Hillary Clinton
The Democratic candidates will gather tonight in Philadelphia for another presidential debate (9 PM, MSNBC). More than any debate this election cycle, the focus will be on frontrunner Hillary Clinton. Her closest rivals for the nomination, Barack Obama and John Edwards, have made abundantly clear their desire to aggressively engage Clinton on issues like Iraq, Iran and Social Security reform. Any soft-pedaling of their criticism tonight, in light of these recent attacks, would likely be cause for great consternation among their core supporters.
With the current Democratic primary discourse so dominated by daily Clinton-Obama-Edwards exchanges, Bill Richardson has taken a page from Republican Mike Huckabee's playbook, calling for an end to the negativity among the leading Democratic candidates. Whether this will earn Richardson more than a pat on the back at tonight’s debate remains to be seen.
