Hillary Loses Debate

Monday, 04 June 2007 12:00 AM

Hillary Clinton lost the Democratic debate last night in New Hampshire. She was uptight, defensive, curt, unfriendly, cold, and tense in her defense of her positions on the Iraq war.

Only after the first 40 minutes of the debate, when the subject turned to more congenial fields for her such as healthcare, gays in the military, and immigration, did she finally loosen up and show some smiles and charm.

Sen. Barack Obama, dignified, substantive, and prepared, came out the best. His reasoned answers and his calm, deliberate presentation contrasted sharply with Hillary's tight unsmiling presentation.

Former North Carolina senator and 2004 vice presidential candidate John Edwards set the tone for the debate with his criticism of his two rivals. He did very well and may have talked himself back into the race — although he did himself no good by repeating that the war on terror was just a "slogan" or a "bumper sticker."

The best performer, bar none, was Sen. Joe Biden.

His defense of funding for the war — to buy protective vehicles for the troops to minimize casualties — was very persuasive, and his demand for action on Darfur was inspiring.

Sen. Chris Dodd did well as did New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson.

Everybody did well except for Hillary. This simply was not her night.
