Hillary Wins

I say this not on the merits of what was said–it was all pretty awful–but because I think she still has the edge in the polls, and the friendly and cheerful tone of the debate, as well as the policy focus, helped cover her rough edges that were apparent in recent weeks. I think that a lot of Democrats will conclude that they like Obama, they want him to be president some day, but that day hasn’t arrived yet. I just didn’t get a changing of the guard vibe.
