All eight candidates are in position now. As reported earlier, the order from left to right is: Richardson, Dodd, Edwards, Biden, Obama, Clinton, Kucinich and Gravel. Edwards and Biden are chatting. Clinton, Obama and Kucinich are writing notes. Richardson and Dodd are drinking their bottled waters. Gravel is looking at Kucinich.
