Malloy/DeStefano debate: the opening statements

Okay, since everyone wants to know who really won the debate between John DeStefano and Dan Malloy, I decided to see if I can set the record straight but I'm going to need everyone's help.

Here's how we're going to do this...

I broke the debate down based on opening statements, questions, and closing statements. For each video segment I post, there will be an online poll where you can vote on which candidate gave a better performance.

After all the video is posted, and polling is finished, I'll add up all the numbers and present the winner on Monday.

Since the debate lasted an hour, I'm going to post each segment in a seperate post between now and Saturday. That should give everyone enough time to view each candidate's response to the question presented to them by the panel and cast their vote.

Without further delay, here are the opening statements from both candidates.

Which candidate gave the better opening statement
Dan Malloy
John DeStefano
