From the way that Hillary talked tonight Bill Clinton didn't do anything while he was in the White House because she did it all.

Time.Com is going to have a hard time deciding who gets the A and who gets the A+ this week.

It's funny, some of the commentaries afterwards included things about Obama being a great and inspiring orator, but that that doesn't always come through in the debates. But I find him more likable in the debates than as an orator because he seems more real. The orator is too slick and I remain dumbfounded by how much people need that and eat it up (not saying that's bad, just that I simply can't relate). The debator is more like the real person--which doesn't mean he's a great debator, in fact he isn't, but I feel like I get a better sense of who he is, and I come away liking him better. If that makes any sense.

Now that I've had a chance to think about it more, I agree. I suppose what I was really thinking is that Hillary seemed to make the entire answer about her accomplishments. Obama didn't specifically answer the question, but I felt like he gave a better overall answer directed more towards Hillary; which is what the question called for.

It was one of those loaded questions where the minute I heard it I knew there was no way either of them was going to give a direct answer. But I agree with you.

Whoa...I'm about 15 minutes in watching on msnbc.com, and I can't believe Hilary's attitude. She's overriding both Barack and the moderators with no regard to any of them. She just made a snarky comment about always getting the first question, and that maybe we should ask if Barack needs a pillow. She needs to tone that down in the coming days...

It's too late to tone it down, the horses left the barn and they're on their way to China

I wanted to smack Hillary about fifteen different times last night. And the sad part is, I really liked her once upon a time.

The part that I found most laughable was when she was telling Russert she'd have her records made available "as soon as we can get to it". I have a feeling she might have all the time in the world to get to those records soon enough.

That's just it. I've always been an Obama supporter, but I at least didn't have an issue with Clinton. Now, I can't stand the woman. She's backed into a corner and knows it, and so she strikes out. It's too bad.

I'm not familiar with that saying, but I like it!


Again, she did nothing to stop his momentum, and her tone may hurt her. We'll see.

She was a strange cross between offensive and defensive last night, and I don't know if either of them are the way to behave in a debate.

The thing is, Clinton really had no choice but to try anything at this point. That's just where she's at right now, so I can't really blame her. It's her last stand. If she does nothing, she'll be criticized for not doing enough, so either way, she loses.

I'm not going to rip her for trying, though. That's just lame. If the roles were reversed, I have no doubt the Obama campaign would be trying the same thing. That's just the way it is.
