I almost feel sorry for Hillary Clinton after tonight’s debate.
Hillary Clinton’s strength came from the fact that during the Clinton years she had a sympathetic media willing to carry her water. Tonight, we saw what Hillary is without her fawning media—and it isn’t pretty. Obama was Mr. Cool, was clearly in command and was clearly acting exactly like a frontrunner should. Hillary was not. She cackled inappropriately, she got flustered, and her lines of attack just didn’t work.
There’s no doubt in my mind that Hillary will not last beyond the Ohio and Texas primaries, and she’ll lose both of them. The 2008 match will be between Barack Obama and John McCain.
The Clinton years are over, at long last.
