The Long Term Significance of Last Night's Debate -- The Emergence of Edwards and the Appearance of a Possible Character Flaw for Hillary

    FYI: Luckily found WTKK 96.9 FM (a little late) and caught some of Tuesday night's debate on live radio.  Us cable-deprived types may want to check this out as carrying  live audio for any future debates.  SMALL CRAFT WARNINGS:  WTKK sounds like a conservative talk station.

    Hillary Clinton is so well-prepared and well-rehearsed that a "surprise" question throws her.  From what I know, she was asked about the National Archives not releasing until 2012 personal notes she wrote to Bill during his presidency.  Also, toward debate's end, she was asked about whether she supported NY Gov.'s Eliot Spitzer recent decision to issue drivers' licenses to illegal aliens.  My take is that she was not a "waffler" so much as one caught by surprise and then tried to "wiggle" - not waffle - through the unexpected questions.  When pressed further on the NY drivers' license question, she dissed it as a "Gotcha!" question.  The lady does not suffer fools gladly.

    Barack Obama recently appeared on The Toteboard for a speech he gave about something called  "poll driven politics" and "triangulation."  While trashing the terms themselves, he coulda brung up these points - in every-day language - in his responses to Hillary.  As Deval might put it, connect the dots.  Barack, though, seemed to lack a nimble wit when the moment arose.
