Debate Watching
Who saw it? What did you think? I missed it myself. From the sounds of it, they both did well, and Hillary impressed all with a moving closing statement. I find it a bit humorous - if not, dare I say, ironic - that the Clinton campaign is now pinning its hopes on this one rhetorical debate moment turning around all the momentum in the race, when their major complaint about Obama is that he's all rhetoric and no substance. Even if those 10 seconds somehow changed the dynamics of the race in her favor, it will not be because of some substantive policy position or credential, or any of the things she is arguing should be the reason for choosing her.

But like I say, I missed it. Somebody who saw it, speak up.
