Democratic debate in Philly

I'll be live blogging the debate tonight ... I'm a little late getting going because I had to wrestle my eight-month-old into her PJs. She's not a fan of getting into her clothes!

Opening statements: Obama obviously is going to try to substitute the word "frustrated" for the dreaded "bitter" he used in his much-maligned private statements in California. I'm sure we'll hear more about this later -- unfortunately. Overall, as Obama's oratories go, this one was one of his weaker offerings.

For her part, Hillary Clinton was unremarkable, which is par for the course with her. Nothing new, nothing surprising, nothing exciting; just vanilla bean here.
