First thoughts on the debate

So, the first debate between Darcy Burner and Dave Reichert (sponsored by the Seattle Times) is over, and I'd say it was a home run for Darcy. She was poised, she was sharp, and never, I thought, off balance. Reichert, meanwhile, wouldn't even answer all the questions.

Meydenbauer Center was packed, and a lot of people, (including, apparently Representative Jay Inslee) were turned away and not allowed inside!

Oddly enough, NPI was acknowledged during the debate - myself and the organization were mentioned in Darcy's response to a question about Net Neutrality. A nice surprise, to be sure, and we're very grateful for the shout-out.

As I have other business to take care of, I'm not going to post a long recap tonight, but I will be going through my notes to put together a more lengthy, thorough analysis which I'll publish tomorrow.
