I’m watching Hillary Clinton debate Barack Obama from the Kodak Theater, where they give out the Academy Awards.
That explains why the program is dragging — they’re only up to Best Supporting Actress. I’m reminded of Johnny Carson hosting the 1979 Oscars: “Welcome to the Academy Awards, a glittering two hours of entertainment, spread out over four hours.”
I’m just hoping things liven up when Billy Crystal does a song-and-dance routine to explain how delegates are selected.
UPDATE: Nice touch. I swear I just heard Hillary Clinton say, “You like me. You really like me!”
