In the joint press conference that was billed as a debate the goal for the big 3 of Hillary, Obama and Edwards was to avoid saying anything stupid or anything at all that wasn't scripted. For the most part they met that goal. The rest of the field had to find a way to get noticed. Dodd and Richardson sounded smart and Biden had the best line of the night when asked if he had the discipline to keep his mouth shut simply said "Yes." But Mike Gravel wasn't timid. He called the Iraq war a crime and said the United States should not look at other countries as enemies. Things are not always black & white and the trick is to deal with the grey. At the end something came up about nuclear weapons and asked the question of "Who the hell are we going to nuke?"
