I have to say, BIG props to Clinton for saying we need to stop the war on science. I've been waiting for someone in the spotlight to bring this up.



So far I think it's a close, well spoken debate. I feel Obama has made some good distinctions as far as inclusion of more people in the process, but it's a close match.

Obviously, for a Democratic audience any attack line on Bush is going to draw applause, no matter which candidate brings it up.

Excellent response from Obama re: action vs. words.

Exactly. He's killing her here.

Oh, her Xerox comment was poor form.

He's getting her on health care, too.

Yup. Her initial response made a strong impression, but his response made her sound a little deceptive.

Exactly, and now she's hijacking the debate moderation to play catch-up.

She's not swinging at him nearly as much as I expected.

Good rebuttal from Clinton, though.

I haven't been home to watch it, but it sounds as if he's winning?

I think so. She's made some good points on stuff, but when she attacks him he seems to not only be standing his ground, but correcting her in a strong, persuasive way.

She has certainly done nothing groundbreaking to put a stop to his momentum. I was expecting more venom in this debate.

I just caught about the last 5-10 minutes of it when they were talking about health care. I don't know if I have the strength to watch more. I expect you guys to keep me up to date

she can't come across forceful or confrontational because she will be percieved as mean or shrill, so she only has a limited gameplan.

bill will be feeling her wrath shortly-i promise you he steers clear of her after debates and primary losses

what senisble man wouldn't?

and all barrack has to do is smile.

Here's what I think so far.

Obama- A
Clinton - B or B +

I can't wait to see how Time.com grades them now.

The first debate I felt it was pretty even, with Clinton scoring some strong points and Obama doing so as well.

I think Obama is ahead in this one so far. Every difference that Clinton has tried to isolate Obama has responded to in a convincing way (at least to me, of course). I think Clinton did well overall in health care - I would expect her to be ready to go on that subject, but Obama held his ground better than in the first debate. But in the other topics so far, I think he's come out ahead. His response to "I'm ready to lead from day 1" and especially his response to Iraq really hit the point home really well, I think.

I can't believe the veritable love fest between them again tonight. They are really going easy on each other. I prefer that though, to endless bickering and character assassanations. I think they're both doing equally well at this point. The best point of the evening so far for me was during the Cuba question when Hillary was saying she wouldn't meet with Cuba's new leader until she saw change being made. I agree with Obama saying he would meet the new leader regardless of, or before any visible progress was made. I loved the point he made about how essentially telling Cuba that meeting with the U.S. president is a privilege just reinforces the Bush administration's blind and arrogant nationalistic policy that we're better than other countries.
