    does this have anything to do with Al Gore being on Apple's Board of Directors?

    I don't think there's some deep ulterior motive here. Supposedly Clinton's appearance at a similar event in 92 made a big difference. The only question anyone remembers him being asked was "Boxers or briefs?" This was CNN's somehwat lame attempt to find some new trifle to turn into a culturally defining moment.

    Considering that most of the candidates said they use PC's, I'd say no.

    There should have been some more hard hitting questions for these guys.

    But hey its CNN and Democrats, add the LA Times and you'd have an Orgy.

    I love the fact that Al Sharpton said a Mac a Politically correct Mac!

    I busted out laughing when I heard that. Even though alot of them used PC's alot of them said theire kids use Macs and loves them.

    Yes, not exactly a shocker.

    If you ever wonder why the questions at televised debates and community forums sound so biased and stupid, there's a reason: These things are tightly scripted afairs, and (especially with CNN) the scripters are biased and stupid. CNN's constant propaganda flow is one of the big reasons I gave up cable TV.

    That's why I don't watch these things anymore - they insult my intelligence by trying to tell me it is an honest exchange between "common folk" and politicians. You really want to know how a politician's going to behave in the future? Just look at how they've behaved in the past!
