We’re glad we didn’t waste any time watching the debate between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. It sounds like no new ground was broken; it was basically a re-run of the last debate, minus John Edwards and the mill. “President Bush is the bogeyman”, “ready to serve”, “ready for change and hope and stuff”, “insert quasi-socialist bromide here”….
Hillary continued to stick to the laughable line “that the nation needed a president ready to go to work on ‘Day One'” (laughable not because the nation doesn’t need experience, but because her standard excludes her). It’s obvious why Obama can’t hit back too hard on that score, but the Republican candidate, whether it’s McCain or Romney, will have no such trouble, as both are much more qualified and experienced than either the junior senator from New York or the junior senator from Illinois.
