Last night was the day that Obama promised something new in his campaign. For the life of me I could not find anything new.
Here is my take on the debate–I am not endorsing anyone just my observations on the get together.
Edwards–Was pretty strong on his attacks on Clinton and her stands on some of the issues.
Obama–His was a low key attack on Clinton, nothing new there.
Clinton–looked presidential, she remained unflappable, but as usual she was very unclear on her stances and elusive on her answers. Her electability was called into question on several occasions.
Biden–he was pretty good. he had the best line of the debate. when asked about Rudy he said that a sentence from him has three parts; a noun, a verb and 9/11.
Kucinich–as always had good things to say, but it will be overshadowed by the UFO thing.
Richardson–tried to be the good guy, and he just cannot break out of the pack.
Dodd–needs to call it a day and go home.
OK, what were the winners and losers. IMO, Edwards won, not for what he said, but for the tenacity in which he went for Clinton. Clinton was second, only because she kept a cool head under the attacks on her stances. A distant third, was Obama, if that was his attack then he needs to rethink his tactics or go home. Way down in fourth, is Kucinich and Biden, some good points but the media will do everything to downplay their importance. The big losers were Richardson and Dodd.
These are just my personal takes on the debate. I am sure that I am not in the same crowd as the media and talk show hosts.
