Por fin flaqueó

No pude ver en directo el debate de anoche. Mirando algunas crónicas esta mañana, parece que Hillary Clinton finalmente flaqueó, siendo John Edwards quien más beligerante se mostró, aunque todas las miradas estuvieran puestas en Barack Obama. Drudge Report informa que los asesores de la Senadora Clinton están acusando en privado al moderador Tim Russert de falta de profesionalidad. Os enlazaré aquí algunos análisis de diferentes medios.

(...) But for all the attention Mr. Obama drew to himself coming into the debate, he was frequently overshadowed by former Senator John Edwards of North Carolina, who — speaking more intensely — repeatedly challenged Mrs. Clinton’s credentials and credibility, and frequently seemed to make the case against Mrs. Clinton that Mr. Obama had promised to make.

(...) We now know something that we did not know before: When Hillary Clinton has a bad night, she really has a bad night. In a debate against six Democratic opponents at Drexel University here Tuesday, Clinton gave the worst performance of her entire campaign (...) --- >The Politico

But Obama just doesn't seem like he either can or wants to be direct on Clinton instead of continuing to talk about himself. Edwards is more sharper, clearer on these differences. It's interesting, but Edwards' campaign points out all of the things he has been first on, but others have gotten the attention for. Seems to me tonight, that Obama -- by virtue of answering the question first perhaps -- has brought something up first, but Edwards has been the one to capitalize on it (...) --- Domenico Montanaro NBC

(...) Clinton found herself under attack on her credibility -- much as her husband, Bill Clinton, was in 1992 when his opponents dubbed him 'Slick Willy' for what they called his shifting stands on issues. (...) --- Boston Globe
