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.

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.

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.
Discussion: ECHIDNE OF THE SNAKES
Mark Hemingway / The Corner:
And the winner is...  ...McCain by a landslide!  A reader writes in: … That jibes with my impression of the debate.  My prediction?  The debate will be received so badly there will be increased pressure to kick Hillary out of the race.  But since Obama was clearly the worse of the two in the debate …

LIVE DEBATE BLOGGIN'  —  8:36 PM ... So I'm coming in a bit late here.  I was on the Polk panel this evening at Long Island University, which ended at 8 PM.  And rushed home to get here.  So what'd I miss?  —  8:44 PM ... Hillary: The Republicans are so bad that I have to become one to save the Democratic party.
Glenn Derene / Popular Mechanics:
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
