That’s how the narrative was always going to go, preordained not because of an ad, but because journalists get bored, and even if they weren’t bored, this is the only way the media knows how to cover our ever lengthier campaign seasons. Actually, the “Is Hillary inevitable?” drumbeat began months ago on cable news shows right, left and center, which is why one misstep is now being parlayed into, “She was horrible.” Yet you yourself point out how superior to Obama she was, her nearest competitor, and all Edwards attacks seemed desperate. We’ll just have to agree to disagree, I suppose. She wasn’t horrible by any stretch of the imagination and especially not in this crowd. This ad is not that well done and will have little, if any, impact in the upcoming Democratic primaries, which isn’t to say she’s a shoe-in, but if she loses it won’t be because of this last debate. (I can see Republicans revisiting the illegal immigrant license footage in the general, though.) And everything you say would have been said, regardless, at some point with whatever prompting was available at the time.
