Are we now finished with the debates for the 3rd District? I hope not. We've offered another chance for Boswell and Lamberti to go head-to-head on our "Insiders" show Sunday, October 15th (Seen Sundays here at WHO-TV at 6:30am and 10:15am--That's for you, Boss)
Lamberti's people said, yes, to the offer. Boswell's peeps said, no.
So who won last night? I bounced that question off as many of my independent-minded friends and co-workers as I could throughout the day. Most seemed to think Lamberti may have faired a little better. They thought he was assertive, but not too much. Although, some told me Boswell did show some fight in him at times. Some complained Boswell's answers seemed to wander at times.
The biggest complaint was Iraq. A new NBC poll said the war in Iraq is the number one topic on voters' minds for November. But the debate offered little to show any differences between the two men on that issue. Good luck, voters.
