Hillary Clinton On Southern Working Class Whites In 1995: “Screw 'Em”  —  During the past week, Sen. Hillary Clinton has presented herself as a working class populist, the politician in touch with small town sentiments, compared to the elitism of her opponent, Sen. Barack Obama.

What Did Hillary Say?  —  Alan Wolfe, a professor of political science and director of the Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life at Boston College, is a contributing editor at The New Republic.  —  Both Chris Orr and Michael Crowley have brought up Ben Barber's recollection …
Marc Ambinder:
The Score Card  —  Keeping the score card, there's no way Obama could fared worse.  Nearly 45 minutes of relentless political scrutiny from the ABC anchors and from Hillary Clinton, followed by an issues-and-answers session in which his anger carried over and sort of neutered him.

Clinton, Obama Find ‘Brotherly Love’ at Philly Debate  —  For Clinton, Obama Last Chance to Settle Scores Before Pennsylvania Primary  —  Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama opened Wednesday's presidential debate on a point of accord: neither would answer head-on whether they'd be willing to name the other as vice president.
Andrew Sullivan / The Daily Dish:
The Fall-Out  —  I agree largely with Ambers: … It was a lifeless, exhausted, drained and dreary Obama we saw tonight.  I've seen it before when he is tired, but this was his worst performance yet on national television.  He seemed crushed and unable to react.
Andrew Sullivan / The Daily Dish:
Live-Blogging Pennsylvania  —  9.51 pm.  The big winner is John McCain.  Then Clinton who seemed at least awake.  Then Obama whose calm was nonetheless trumped by obvious exhaustion.  Yes, the Clintons have shredded him.  But that's what they know how to do.  It's also what the GOP knows how to do.

Jonah Goldberg / The Corner:
Tactics Uber Alles  —  I'm no leftwing blogger, but I can only imagine how furious they must be with the debate so far.  Nothing on any issues.  Just a lot of box-checking on how the candidates will respond to various Republican talking points come the fall.

Sam Boyd / American Prospect:
THESE QUESTIONS ARE A DISGRACE.  —  A woman asks if Obama “believes in the American flag” because he doesn't wear a flag pin.  —  Charlie Gibson says that questions about the flag are “all over the internet” — along with Pamela Anderson's sex tape, cats with bad grammar, and Rick Astley.

Jonathan Cohn / The New Republic:
Sorry, Charlie: You're Wrong on the Cap Gains Tax  —  Charlie Gibson really hammered the candidates—both candidates—over their proposals to raise the capital gains tax.  Why woudl they do that, he asked, when lowering the cap gains tax during the 1990s raised revenue?

Mosheh Oinounou / Cameron's Corner:
A Hamas problem for Obama?  —  While Sen. Barack Obama sought to improve his relationship with the Jewish community today by meeting with leaders Philadelphia, comments by a Hamas political adviser this weekend could potentially hurt the Democratic presidential candidate.

Hindrocket / Power Line:
HAMAS ENDORSES OBAMA  —  On Sunday, Aaron Klein and John Batchelor interviewed Ahmed Yousef, chief political adviser to the Prime Minister of Hamas, on WABC radio.  The interview produced a scoop which, for some reason, has not been widely publicized: Hamas has endorsed Barack Obama for President.

Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
GIBSON  —  I guess I'm not enough of a Gibsonologist.  But I guess there's a history of Gibson knowingly spouting off with his complete lack of comprehension of what sorts of incomes most Americans make.  —  Continuing Debate: Looking around other sites, I guess I'm not the only one that thought this debate was unmitigated travesty.

Greg Mitchell / The Huffington Post:
The Debate: A Shameful Night for the U.S. Media  —  In perhaps the most embarrassing performance by the media in a major presidential debate in years, ABC News hosts Charles Gibson and George Stephanopolous focused mainly on trivial issues as Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama faced off in Philadelphia.

Mac vs. PC: The Ultimate Lab Test for New Desktops & Laptops  —  This computer rivalry has been elevated to a cultural divide on par with Pepsi versus Coke.  Taking it beyond personal taste, PM crunches the numbers—with some surprising results (and detailed benchmark scores).  —  Photographs by Lendon Flanagan
