So, I watched the debate from Philadelphia tonight, Clinton versus Obama.
Until tonight, I was leaning toward Hillary. Not any more. It's not just that she took the low road and offered material that stopped just short of slander; it was that as somebody whose family has been subject to this kind of crap for years, she had to know what it felt like, and she did it anyway.
I was disappointed. I should know better by now, but still, I was. She's a smart, capable woman, but I didn't like what I saw and heard.
I don't think either of them particularly won the debate. But Hillary lost at least one primary vote because of how she conducted herself.
