AUSTIN, Texas (CNN) - The audience loved Clinton’s first response when asked about a time she had been tested – a deliberately vague answer that drew a knowing laugh from many in the audience.She then laid out a very eloquent response, essentially saying that her crises are nothing compared to the problems average voters confront.It's one of the few debate answers to get a standing ovation.
– CNN Senior Political Analyst Bill Schneider
Ironically, Senator Clinton ends the debate the the strongest piece of rhetoric of the night. Strong enough, probably not, but Democrats are looking for inspiration, and instead of attacking Senator Obama for that it would be, and perhaps was, most effective.
I like them both. HINT HINT
OBAMA was strong the entire debate!
On the superdelegate question . . .
Superdelegates are supposed to vote in the best interests of those they represent. . . not vote HOW those people voted months ago.
Does everyone who cast a vote in Iowa for Hillary STILL support her? After hearing Barack Obama speak more and more since New Hampshire, do those voters all hold the same opinion of him?
Superdelegates need to use their judgement as to who is the best choice and offer those they represent their best judgement. . . if superdelegates are simply supposed to vote for the winner of their state, no matter how many months ago that election was held, what candidates dropped out, what new information on a candidate has come to light, what's their purpose or function.
Superdelegates who are using the, "I have to vote like my constituents did," argument have another agenda. We know why many will be switching to Obama. Unfortunately, this shows how racism goes both ways.
That was an AMAZING closing from Hillary Clinton.
Incredibly moving, incredibly real, incredibly Presidential.
Do I have to be a Bush or a Clinton to be President of the U.S.A?
Let me know, I can change my name.
it was like she was conceding. i think that is what got to people.
She scored big with that one.
standing ovation.. She just won texas.
Take that for speech eloquency.
I agree. I have to give it to her – great last words – and Thank God she didn't CRY!!!
That's my future President, You rocked HIllary!!!
One of the few answers to get a standing O?? It was the only one – She is the REAL DEAL
This is why Hillary should be our President! Obama is an empty suit. All talk with no record to stand behind.
like I said before riding on uncle bills coattails......
How jarring is it when Hillary Clinton actually acts like a human being? I saw it coming when she brought back the New Hampshire question.
Bill. did you see the look on Obama's face when the debate ended?
Campbell Brown was biased as she has always been on the CNN show in her questioning of Clinton.
Yes, Yes-Good,Good. One of two needless hurdles completed until Obama wins this nomination. She's old news and a winer.
Clinton edns strong, but Obama's call on the decency and generosity of the American people will live with us.
She did a good job on that one but it had a sorrowful tone. She needed to bring it across but still look like a winner or presidential. As far as Obama is concerned, I'm just glad he did not talk about his messy desk this time. He learned from that.
She had a nice response to that last question. But I am not going to vote for her because she looks human when responding to a question about her husband's infidelity. Too much on the other side of the scale.
It's her repeat New Hampshire Tear moment - fake!
Looks like a scene right out of movie. Come people please listen to what is really being said. Nothing!!!
