Debate Day

Update: Check back frequently at the official campaign blog's Debate HQ today and tonight for action items, photos and video, news, and analysis.

Update 2: Ned will be on with Sam Seder on Air America at about 12:30pm. Correction: Ned will be a guest tomorrow, not today.

Quoting from a post here on Monday that got lost in the Joe-defection shuffle that day:

...Unlike the convention, where many delegates' votes were uncertain until the last moment, the facts surrounding the debate are clear, and really blunt the impact of these expectations games.

Fact: Joe Lieberman is an experienced 18-year incumbent senator, who has run for Vice President once and President once, debating on the biggest national stage with the likes of Dick Cheney and John Kerry. He dispatched an 18-year incumbent himself in 1988, with his very good performances in debates against Lowell Weicker playing a key role in his election victory. In comparison, Ned Lamont is a complete neophyte as a debater, someone who until a few months ago never envisioned a future in politics. The television audience he faces on Thursday night will likely be the biggest he has ever faced.

The debate will be televised on WVIT-30, C-SPAN, and MSNBC, and there will be a watch party in South Norwalk.
