We're back to the pre-Iowa Hillary...robotic and programmed
She was very mean spirited and sounded like a robot. I was expecting to see one of those wind up things in her back. Whatever humanity and appeal she gained in NH, she lost it tonight. She looked like the Hillary that got trounced in Iowa. This was her worst debate performance.

2. I really didn't see or hear that.
I heard a fierce debater. That's all. And I'm rather undecided at the moment.

3. Who the hell is advising her? She muted alot of momentum she had.
Came off as overly agressive, and mean at times.

5. After tonight, her advisors will tell her to cry tomorrow
So she can try to gain back some of that humanity.

6. Funny, I consider this one of her very best performances.
She showed passion--really, appeared to believe what she is
saying.

7. Very shrill, not going about the job of attacking the record without
it coming off as inappropriately personal with an acidic undertone. Thats unprofessional. Okay to attack someones record but sounding shrewish is unprofessional. It goes beyond being about a disagreement on substantive issues. Shrill on issues that need to be discussed without the shrill attitude. I guess it goes back to the anger about inevitability slipping off into this air.

9. I didn't see that at all.
She was aggressive, that's for sure. She put Obama on the defensive, yes; and she was pretty bold in confronting him directly. She wasn't going for sweet and likeable, or as you say "humanity and appeal." She was in control the whole time, to the point you might say she was manipulative -- she was out for a reaction and she got it.

I think the tactic is one thing -- we can agree with her or disagree with her on that.

But as far as meeting her goals and doing what she set out to do, she was superb.

One thing I'll say for her -- I no longer have any doubt that she could take on any of the Republicans and leave them stuttering.

show in her facial expressions and mannerisms. some would term her annoying. Kind of like- oh there she goes again. Many of her responses were excessively long and wordy that causes her points to get lost.
