With Strong Debate, Clinton Quiets Talk of a Downward Slide
Edited on Sat Nov-17-07 05:25 AM by ClarkUSA
From today's front-page Washington Post, a post post-debate analysis:

'Anita Dunn, a Democratic strategist who is neutral in the race, said she thinks the debate had two
effects: to heighten the importance of a December debate in Iowa and to give a sense of a race that is narrowing
to a contest between Clinton and Obama.

"Edwards seems to defy gravity" in Iowa, she said. "He's always had a group of people there who just really like
him, but this debate kind of set out the fault lines between the front-runners for those Iowa debates, which are
incredibly important but even more so now."

Democratic pollster Geoffrey Garin described the race as a contest between old and new, with Obama finally
making his case as effectively as Clinton has been making hers.

"Obama has gotten much better and much sharper in framing that choice for voters over the course of the last
four weeks," he said. "There's a lot more clarity and sharpness in the way he is defining the choice between new
and old for voters and saying why it matters in a way that qualifies him more to be president."'

Iowa, here we come! No booing plants - er, I mean people - in the audience this time, hopefully. :evilgrin:

1. If Edwards and Obama keep sticking their feet in their mouths, it's a shoo-in.

Not.

By the way, how's this for a slide?

"Senator Hillary Clintons lead in Iowa has fallen seven points over the past few weeks. This is consistent
with the six-point slide measured in New Hampshire."
