Closing Thoughts

In this debate, nobody seemed particularly strong. Hillary Clinton continued to look vulnerable in a general (positioning herself to the left of Obama on healthcare, completing her flip flop on drivers licenses for illegal immigrants, keeping up this I-am-not-playing-the-gender -card farce while playing the gender card, and being shrill, programmed and unlikable). However, she has a substantial lead over other Democrats, and Edwards or Obama need to do something major to be able to overtake her, and neither were able to do that tonight. By initially hedging on the drivers licenses question after pounding Clinton for weeks on not staking out a clear position, both Obama and Edwards will allow Hillary to get off the hook. The bottom line is that no matter how low the approval ratings are of Bush or generic Republicans, all of the Democrats look quite beatable.
