I would be pretty surprised if this debate changed anything for any voter. There was no major moment. Democrats' views of their candidates are largely defined by now, and each of their performances are likely to be evaluated along those lines. One thing that I would say, though, is that the debate revealed a lot of vulnerability in both candidates. On foreign policy, taxes, guns, social security, and on intangibles such as Clinton's trustworthiness, Obama's contortions on Jeremiah Wright and his "cling" remarks. Both candidates came off as very beatable in the general election in this debate.
