A quick take on the debate

One can like or dislike, or agree or disagree, with any of the five candidates on stage last night. But at least all five showed up prepared to address serious issues like serious adults, and for that we can all be rightly proud. That said, here are my reactions to last night:

Sanders: Won the night. (Pundits and Hillary supporters will, of course, disagree.)
Clinton: Kept her base. (But probably didn't make any new converts.)
O'Malley: Still don't know who he is.
Chafee: "Vote for me because I'm a stand-up guy." (Um . . . okay,)
Webb: Republican-lite. (Dude, you're on the wrong stage!)

1. As to winning, I think the 'proof is in the pudding'.

Ie, what happens in the regular polls that are taken in the wake of the debate. If nothing changes, I think that has to be considered a Hillary win. If Bernie gets a bump, and especially if at the same time Hillary loses ground, then I think it makes for a Bernie win.
