Here comes the judge: The Forum – Baddour’s Question

Thursday, October 12th, 2006

What is the most important thing, if elected, you’ll accomplish over the next 8 years?

Adam Stein talks about how he can only serve about 1/3rd of a term (about 2 years).

Oct. 16th’s UNC Young Democrat Superior Court 15B forum. Candidate openings.

In an effort to clean up the original post and make the page load faster, here’s a playlist version.

Here comes the Judge: The Forum

Wednesday, October 11th, 2006

[UPDATE:] All videos have been uploaded to youTube and are available here.

Tonight, four candidates for Superior Court faced off before 24 folks that appeared to be students (grad or otherwise) and, including myself, two older folk.

Our cup runneth over. Every one of the candidates this evening was quite impressive.

While our choices can be narrowed on externalities, like Adam Stein’s preplanned obsolescence, the character, tenor, experience of these candidates came through…


Posting videos on youTube as I process them. This is my first attempt to film an inside event. I ran into a few problems: dying batteries, filled memory cards, mystery heads popping up, bottle woman, standing candidates, Mr. Tongue clicker, etc.

I apologize to the candidates for clipping various speeches (like Carl’s opening statement which starts late due to a camera glitch). My next effort should be PRO quality ;-).


Moved videos to separate posts to improve page loading times.

The forum wrapped without an opportunity for the folks in the audience to ask a question or two. That said, I appreciated the moderator’s giving the candidates enough time to fully answer.

All in all, a good forum.

I’m using a wonderful open source software (OSS) tool VirtualDub to edit the raw AVI files from my Canon S3 and convert them to YouTube (or is it GooTube) friendly 320×240 MPEG-4 XVids.
