Following tonight's Democratic presidential debate in Los Angeles, Crooks and Liars' John Amato joined Keith Olbermann, Arianna Huffington and TPM's Josh Marshall on a special edition of Countdown to talk about the debate from the blogosphere's perspective.

John attended tonight's debate and said the atmosphere was highly charged and both candidates' supporters were out in force. When asked about Wolf Blitzer's questioning of Hillary Clinton about her Iraq vote -- calling it naive, John noted that while she will never say it was the wrong move and there's a lot of resentment in the blogosphere about that, the audience at the theater seemed to feel that Blitzer was piling on her and turned against him. Amato also brings up the fact that as soon as he dropped out of the race, Rudy Giuliani ran straight to John McCain to endorse him, looking like a "lost puppy dog" while John Edwards has played it cool and is waiting to see how things work out.

Nice work, buddy.
