SCORING THE DEBATE….I got home too late to see the Democratic debate last night, but the left blogosphere seems to be virtually unanimous that Hillary Clinton won (for whatever definition of “won” you prefer). This seems to be the consensus both of those who like Hillary and those who don’t.

That’s amazing. I’ve long felt that Hillary Clinton is a more effective debater and public speaker than she’s given credit for, but I’m still surprised that she seems to have blown away the competition so thoroughly last night. I’m interested enough in seeing how she did this that I might even try to catch a rerun of the debate if it gets rebroadcast later in the week.
