The YouTube debates are over. I haven’t watched them yet (though I caught one question/answer round on a rerun of it), but it seems to me that Obama came out looking better than Hillary. I base that on two things:
- Hillary snarked that Obama was “irresponsible” and “naive”, which I don’t think was accurate or called for. Obama’s retort that Hillary was following Bush’s example, on the other hand, sounded pretty accurate for me.
- In the one YouTube debate question I watched, Hillary “politically” sidestepped and uttered a bunch of fluff that didn’t answer the question at all. Obama answered both halves of the question, and was the only candidate I saw who did so (I missed the first one or two responses).
