Has the media already decided who will be the Democratic candidate?

Did you try to watch the Democratic debates last night? If so, I'm sure you were scratching your head at the beginning, thinking “Are they only going to ask questions of Clinton and Obama?” And, “Will Tim Russert ever shut up?”

It sure seemed that way, and well, that's not far from the truth. Sen. Chris Dodd's folks have been keeping track of debate time with a “Talk Clock” to track how equitable the airtime is that's given to the candidates. Last night's results:



Should the moderators really have more airtime than 4 of the 6 candidates in the debate?

I am sure you know the Media is in Bush's pocket and like Bush and the Repug Party they want Hillary to be the nominee because they will defeat her and stay in power.
That would keep Bush from declaring martial order. Rove was dismissed so he could concentrate on attacking Hillary and dirtying her and the whole lot will succeed one way or the other.

Well, call me naive, but I have hope they won't succeed ....
