Score a point for Dodd last night

Dodd said at last night's debate that he supports legalizing marijuana, a position opposed by all other candidates. My usual favorite, Edwards, said legalizing "sends the wrong signal" - a variant on the slippery-slope argument technique that I hate.

Dodd was good last night, as was Biden (surprisingly). Obama was okay, Edwards was okay, Clinton her usual evasive and competent self. Richardson, my second favorite, wasn't so good.

Clinton said she wants to keep the estate tax exemption set at $7 million per couple, which is insane. Edwards wants it at $4 million, which is still too high, but better.

I think Dodd might be my third favorite now, although I don't see him as a real contender.
