Bad Night for Obama - Hillary won the nomination last night

Guys, Last night was a great night for democrats. Every one can see the two great candidates democrats have for the General Election. But coming back to the Democratic nomination, I think what happened last night was to Hillary's advantage. I dont think Hillary herself would have expected. Here is my reasoning and rationalizion for that:
When ever Obama goes on attack againsy Hillary, he gets a free pass due to the Clinton History and MSM. See what happened in South Carolina, last week debate. Obama started with Walmart comment and Hillary retaliated and overall Hillary got burnt. Obama still has that likable guy image and what ever he says against clintons, he gets a free pass.
The momentum Obama was building from South Carolina win is mainly due to the reaction against Clintons, mainly Bill. But last night looking at the debate, its like we reset the whole thing and Hillary shows her mettle in policy and comes as likable enough. And it gave the idea that these two can be on the same ticket and every one knows its only going to happen if it is Clinton - Obama , not the other way around.
From the policy wise, every one knows Hillary has advantage in Health Care , Obama on Iraq and any rest of the issues Hillary has a slight advantage, her being a policy wank. The main advantage Obama, has is on the likeability side and last night both of them came as likeable. It feels like I am exhausted this morning for all the antiicpation for this debate and now I feel comfortable with both of the candidates and its not a good thing for Obama. Obama needs to have the momentum of anti Hillary going for him to win and after last night I dont think it exists.
Any how thats my thaughts and would love to hear from rest of you guys.
