Debate Word Analysis
Via Kos, this is an interesting word analysis of last night's debate. It shows me a couple things: Clinton is on message, Edwards emphasizes very basic civic-minded words, and Obama does not tend to emphasize words that are evocative, emotional, even memorable, and is also the most self-reflective - the only candidate for whom "campaign" was one of the 50 most-often words used. Richardson and Biden were the only ones who did not manage to say "war" enough to get in the top 50.
