Democratic Debate Winneri.l.cnn.net

cnn.com — Democratic presidential candidates faced questions directly from voters on Monday in the first CNN/YouTube debate.

Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and Gov. Bill Richardson listen to YouTube questions.

The lights and cameras were focused on the eight candidates, but it was the personal, heartfelt and, at times, comical nature of the user questions that stole the spotlight.

Questions included one from a father who lost a son in Iraq and wondered if he would lose another, a gay couple asking why they shouldn't be allowed to marry and a woman stricken with breast cancer who asked if her chance of survival would be better if she had health insurance.

Most observers agreed that none of the candidates debating at the Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, particularly outshined their rivals, doing nothing to challenge Sen. Hillary Clinton's position as the Democratic race's front-runner.

Unfortunately the YouTube format did not add credibility to the process. The theatrics were most definitely unnecessary.
