MY TAKE ON THE DEM DEBATE  —  So, a few observations about the Democratic debate.  —  First, a few months ago, I said that I didn't get what Barack Obama thought he was doing in one of the debates, that he was doing a very good job debating as the frontrunner, when in fact he was falling further and further behind Hillary Clinton.

Hugh Hewitt / Townhall.com:
“I Thought That Mitt Romney Won The debate.”  —  Dick Morris is no friend of Mitt Romney, and his declaration of Romney as the “winner” tonight is the assessment that caught my eye.  That's called “an admission against interest,” and it is very significant.  I think I know why.

The Corner:
McCain and the Debate  —  The more I thought about it last night, the less well his performance sat with me.  I think he won as a political matter and now would be surprised if he doesn't win handily in New Hampshire.  But he was nasty toward Romney, letting his hatred—and I used that word advisedly—show.
