Random debate scenes
  • Invited debate attendees (and those who bought tickets on the free market) are filing in to the Kodak Theatre through boisterous crowds of supporters with Obama and Clinton signs (and a few obligatory Si, Se Puede's.) The O-ba-ma chanters have the vowels and syllables to win the vocal competition in the echo chamber in the Kodak entry way. 3:15
  • Mayor Villaraigosa sat down with Wolf Blitzer on the CNN and gave his pitch for Clinton. Asked if he senses that Obama is making inroads in the Latino community, Antonio said: "I don't." Not mentioned is that the Mexican American Political Association endorsed Obama this week. 3:25
  • The L.A. Times may not have figured out hyperlinks yet on its website, but the debate swag for media includes nice little retractable thumb drives with the Times logo. Also breath mints. 3:29

Bill Boyarsky / LA's no drama water boss
Marcie Edwards, Los Angeles' water boss, gives an audience no sense of the calamitous nature of the drought. But maybe that’s as it should be.
