Phil: Compared to Obama, Hillary was frighteningly good. He was dead on his feet; down the stretch I half-expected he’d be checking his watch. He had nothing new to state, and increasingly he gave off the vibe that he wanted to be anywhere else but there. Even he seems tired of his old bromides, but in his empty suit he had nothing new to offer. He appeared exasperated. Hillary, meanwhile, was having the time of her life, showing off at every opportunity, the smartest girl in the class, scoring points with teacher, with great satisfaction, giving off not a hint that most everyone assumes her days are numbered. The interesting thing is that all the post-debate intensity has involved Barackudas rallying to defend their little darling; Hillary seems to have no devoted followers.
