The Senate debate video from last night is now on YouTube, although it may be a few minutes until it finishes processing. It runs about 1:16.. A few quick thoughts on first watch, more later
The conflict between the candidates seems more apparent and direct watching today than it did last night.
Van Hollen seemed more comfortable with the back and forth than he has in any event yet, while Edwards seemed much less so. She seemed to be looking for every opportunity to attack, while Van Hollen responded more smoothly and in the normal rhythm of the back and forth.
The crowd was very participatory and loud. While it was clearly a home Van Hollen audience, there was a strong Edwards contingent as well. It still amazes me that there were over 600 people in the room, a great statement of the interest that this race is drawing.
