Transcript Analyzer Update

I have updated the Transcript Analyzer so that you can view different transcripts. Both the Democrat & Republican debates in New Hampshire on January 5th are available. There are two other debates as well.

Democrat Debate - Jan 5th, 2008

Republican Debate - Jan 5th, 2008

These images are a little compressed compared to the actual application but a few things still immediately jump out at me:

  • The Republican debate was characterized by more shorter exchanges between participants than the Democrat debate
  • 'health' was discussed pretty heavily in both
  • 'immigration' was discussed in the Republican but not the Democrat debate
  • During the Republican debate Romney had rapid-fire exchanges with Paul, then Huckabee, Thompson, McCain, and finally Guilani. No other candidate showed the same pattern.
