The Biggest Loser

I just finished watching tonight's presidential debate, and while I readily admit my Edwards bias, he did an especially good job tonight. This was his best performance so far. He drew more than one "bright line" between himself and Clinton, beginning by differentiating his stand from hers on leaving combat troops in Iraq. Loved his "unto the least of these" choice of scripture. If you agree, there couldn't be a better time to toss some change his way.

On the other hand, I thought that Obama was the biggest loser. The pre-press indicated that he was going to go after Clinton, and he really did not. His answer about why he did not go to Jena was extremely weak. He said he was in Washington trying to bring an end to the Iraq war. Well, if not missing votes is so important, why did he not vote on the Iran resolution today? And why was he in Georgia for a fundraiser last week rather than being in Washington for a vote? I also heard a rumor-just a rumor-that disclosures will show he has spent a TON of his cash. And, to what advantage?

I also thought that this was Clinton weakest debate performance. She simply refused to answer some questions. And she's a Yankee's fan.
