Ambition this shall tempt to rise,
And moody Madness laughing wild
Amid severest woe.
-from Thomas Gray's "Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College"
Tonight's Lamont-Lieberman debate will be carried live on C-SPAN, at 7pm EST. I'm pulling for Lieberman to be his arrogant self. I haven't seen Lamont speak in person, but when I've seen him on TV, he comes across as sincere and honest and down to earth.
