The Final Clinton-Obama Debate

Tonight marks the 20th time that Clinton and Obama will have engaged in a debate or forum, ranging from the moderately civilized to no-you-didn't confrontational. With slumping poll numbers and an 0-11 showing for the last several contests, it's make-or-break time for Senator Clinton. A decision victory will not be enough for the New York Senator to stop her opponent in this exhibition and she will need to throw stiff jabs and combinations for a knockout. There is also the hope by some that she will finish on her stool with a simple "No mas" so the political prizefighter out of Chicago can focus on the heavyweight bout in November. Truth be told, however, that matchup may be more MMA than the Sweet Science.

Hillary vs Obama

Clinton chances to slow Obama at debate

Hillary Rodham Clinton will get her last, best chance Tuesday night to slow Barack Obama before the March 4 primaries in the latest debate of an increasingly contentious Democratic presidential race.

Obama has won 11 straight primaries and caucuses, and even some of Clinton's supporters concede she must win in both Ohio and Texas next week to keep her candidacy alive.
"I think things have gotten a little hotter in the last couple of days," Obama said at a news conference where he collected an endorsement from a former campaign rival, Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut.

There was unlikely to be any debate about that, after a four-day span in which Clinton accused Obama of distorting her record on trade and health care in mass mailings, then criticized him as ill-prepared to take charge of the nation's foreign policy.

On the plus side, if Obama wins in Texas and Ohio and it's over for Hilary, LA will get their Mayor back! He can pretend to be in town with all the private jets he uses, but we all know he is NEVER here! He is with her. . .

Just my two cents but I thought Obama came across as a cool, smart, not ruffled easily, accessible, eloquent, and a very democratic yet tough when he has to be dude.
I was impressed.

Hillary although smart and tough came across to me as petty, vindictive, not completely honest in her accusations of what Obama said, and most of all she looked like a contender who just took a hard left hook, was against the ropes, and was thinking whether she would go down for an eight count or try and grab, hold and headbutt Obama.
Unless St Jude steps in for her Hillary's done for.

PS" I agree with the poster that said that the big pumpkin head Tim Russert must think he's the star of the show or somehow the voice of the American people.
His F'n ego is too big for his F'n melon. The guys questions to Obama about Farrakan's endorsement wreaked of stupidity.
He might as well of asked him if he beats his wife.
What a legend in his own mind.

I was a Clinton supporter and rallied to help get Bill elected. However, the behavior of Bill and Hillary has made many like myself support Obama. They have made it clear they are racist trying to diminish the good works of Dr. Martin Luther King and the statements Hillary has made just this past week are out of pure desperation. Shame on them.

Can't say I was impressed with Sen. Hillary Clinton's performance. She was in turn combative, defensive and petulant. She talked a lot, but didn't say anything new. Sen. Barack Obama remained cool and collected, even when Clinton was talking over him and the moderators. The hosts of Tuesday's debate should have left the questioning to Brian Williams, as Tim Russert's often inane questions and aggressive manner suggested he doesn't understand the concept of being a neutral moderator. I'll be very surprised if Hillary Clinton's campaign hasn't been derailed by poor planning and racist attacks, never mind the candidate's own unpredictable behaviour and flashes of temper from both Clinton and her husband. As for Clinton's campaign surrogates, I have been astonished by their racist, divisive actions within the past few days. If by some fluke Hillary manages to pull the rug from beneath Obama and become the nominee, I would find it difficult to vote for her. While I once was a fan, the arrogant and reckless manner in which she has run this campaign has caused me to lose respect for her ability to be an effective leader.

Tony's accusations of racism against the Clintons is idiotic, shows the double standards going against Hillary as a woman. This morning on the View, even Whoopi Goldberg agrees that Hillary has gotten so much crap, including from Chris Matthrews/MSNBC as "the bitch," and stuff like this blog and Tony's crap -- Shrillery, bossy, "talking over"/not diminitice enough...

Even Whoopi, who you may know is black, said that if anyone said any of that to Obama, they'd be called racist. He's gotten to soft-pillow treatment because on the one hand, some really want a black president, while on the other, those who don't bend over backwards not to show it.

Whoopi: "We've all been focusing on a black man being the last frontier, but we've been overlooking that it's really a woman, the gender issue."

Even airhead conservative Elizabeth Hasselhoff reminds that black men got the vote before white women, that no one wants to hear a woman's voice that sounds "bossy."

After some progress in the 70's to 80's, we're back 180 to idealizing slutty stupid girls like Lindsay, Paris, Britney (until her breakdown which this attitutde contributes to) -- can't even think of a star who's known for being "brainy."

So Tony, whatever Kook-Aid you're drinking, you're seeing racism where it doesn't exist and are a sexist.
