“Clinton Bombs Debate”

In the same debate that Dennis Kucinich’s UFO sighting may be the top story, Hilary Clinton had the worst debate of her Presidential season. She defended and then distanced herself from a plan to give illegal immigrants driver’s licenses in New York, a plan that leaves her open to attacks from the right as well as the left. John Edwards and Barack Obama both attacked Clinton as inconsistent and confusing.

As the other candidates seemed passionate and engaged Clinton’s demeanor during the debate was “emotionless and detached.” She ducked questions, was attacked by most candidates, and gave confusing answers.

As of now, Clinton has massive leads in national polls. However, debates like these could cut into her small lead in Iowa, and allow candidates like Edwards, Obama, and Bill Richardson to gain ground in important states such as South Carolina, New Hampshire, and Nevada.

Those who were saying the nomination of Clinton was inevitable, may need to reassess the situation.

However, the best line of the debate came from Joe Biden. Check out his zinger directed towards Rudy Giuliani; “There’s only three things he mentions in a sentence: a noun and a verb and 9/11. I mean, there’s nothing else”

Nice.
