Vegas Live: The Platitude Debate

The shallowness it just don't stop. The first 20 minutes are consumed entirely with crappy questions.

- Sen. Obama, you won the women's vote in Iowa; Hillary won it in N.H. Is that because you said, "You're likable enough, Hillary"?

- Obama, do you believe race is an issue when people go into the privacy of a voting booth?

- Sen. Edwards, what is a white male to do running against these historic candidacies?

Edwards does his best to not answer this question, so they ask it again.

Even someone in the audience agrees: "You two are only asking race-based questions!" he shouts. Everyone pauses awkwardly. Was that Dennis Kucinich??
