Here's another thread for you to discuss the debate.
Update [2008-2-26 22:19:47 by Jonathan Singer]: I've got to say, even though it was defused a bit towards the end of this second segment, that Hillary Clinton would stoop to making insinuations about Barack Obama being anti-Semitic or not sufficiently denouncing anti-Semites is really beyond the pale to me, just totally unacceptable. There can be attacks in this primary, and the candidates can disagree on issues. But I am just shocked that Clinton would stoop so low to make such insinuations. I am somewhat appalled, both as a Democrat and a Jewish American.
Update [2008-2-26 22:21:48 by Todd Beeton]:Did Obama just call himself a "supposed liberal?"
Update [2008-2-26 22:32:57 by Todd Beeton]:Obama had a great answer on what vote he would take back re Terry Schiavo. "Sometimes inaction can be as costly as action."
Update [2008-2-26 22:32:57 by Todd Beeton]:On "what question does Hillary Clinton need to answer...?" Obama isn't taking the bait, instead taking the high road. He's wisely instead talking about why he should be the nominee. Will Clinton use her answer to have another "moment" or to draw some blood?
Update [2008-2-26 22:43:37 by Todd Beeton]:Senator Obama often looked uncomfortable to me up there when not answering. Didn't really project the confidence I'm used to him projecting at the debates lately. Of course while Clinton may have looked more confident and more presidential, several of her lines didn't really work, and Obama's taking the high road may have come off better ultimately. But she certainly appeared to be the very image of the fighter she says she is, not sure it helped her though.
