    ABC's Charlie Gibson did a heck of a job advancing the supply-side ball during last night's Democratic debate.

    OK, for a while I thought my little peace-making idea (see my last pre-vacation post) was working. I'd look from time to time at my blackberry, and found NOT A SINGLE MESSAGE from Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton trash-talking each other. Maybe I HAD helped turned down the volume on the Democratic primary noise machine.
