7. Just compare the three with Orator Bush and Debater Bush, and
they all look great. That John Edwards should be a skilled debater is no surprise; that's his profession. Hillary was an unknown to me. I had never really seen her in debate before this campaign, and I'm impressed. I pretty much agree with the Observer article about Obama's performance.

Whichever of the three gets the nomination will have to face off with John McCain or Mitt Romney - or less likely Giuliani or Hucklebee. They're all pretty good on their feet but they all carry the heavy vulnerability of Bushism.
