Richardson: Jolly Latino Elf who wants all the children to have health care. Coolest moment — no doubt whatsoever that mental health coverage should have parity with all other health coverage. Being a dark horse candidate gives one sympathy with the crazy people, I think. Wishes Elizabeth Edwards well within the first minute on stage.
Obama: Elizabeth who? Also, he has no plan, but he is going to be conducting roundtables! A new kind of campaign, with a new kind of table. Roundtable is his answer to just about everything.
A Swampland correspondent paraphrases one exchange:
Karen Tumulty: Will you need to raise taxes?
Obama: Did you not hear me? THESE TABLES ARE ROUND.
We expect the HRC team to release a statement expressing disappointment in Obama’s lack of vision concerning tables soon.
