The Most Comfortable Candidate– Dennis Levinson, Atlantic County Incumbent Executive.
Best Projection and Emotion– Nick Asselta, District 1 Incumbent Senator.
Most Intelligent– Michael Donohue, District 1 Assembly candidate. Mr. Donohue was the next-to-last candidate to speak on the Stem-Cell Bonding Question. He was the only candidate to demonstrate an understanding of the subject of stem-cells. He manifested his grasp of the subject, explaining his position in relation to the two-fold division of stem-cells: adult and embryonic, all in less than a minute.
I complemented Mr. Donohue afterwards. He replied, “I am a straight-shooter.”
Most Brave – Jim Whelan, District 2 Senate Challenger. He took a position opposing everyone else who had spoke and alienating the entire crowd. He did not gain any friends to his ideas. He did show the fortitude that a statesman is supposed to have.
Most Boring – The woman next to me – my wife sat on one side and this woman sat on the other – remarked to my wife, “Besides (Whelan) being boring, he was wrong.”
