AUSTIN, Texas (CNN) - "Change you can Xerox," Clinton just said.She is trying to continue making the plagiarism charge - that Obama lifted a portion of a speech from Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick - an issue.But that line seemed contrived to me.And Obama clearly enjoyed the plagiarism question, using it as an opportunity to portray the charge as an example of the "silliness" of Washington he is battling.Related: Watch Obama defend plagiarism charges
–CNN Senior Political Analyst Bill Schneider
A lot of boos on that one, right after he ALREADY explained that there were a few lines he used from a friend and co-chair.
The national co-chair remark really hit it big, and he alluded again to people getting discouraged by pointless attacks.
The audience did not like Clinton's pushiness on that charge... it is a loser.
If Obama keeps pointing his nose in the air like he's knee deep in cow crap, she's going to punch him out!!!
Hillary throws a jab, Obama dodges and hits her with an uppercut.
How many more till she falls?
The booing audience isnt evident enough?
He has a very good defense to the plagiarism charge; the source knew he was going to use the line and, apparently, encouraged it.
I keep on saying this
SAD SAD SAD!
He explained the situation and she tries to play old politics by attacking something he clarified.
How pathetic is she. That shows exactly the president she will be. Petty and playing old games expecting a different result.
You know she and her staff thought that comment was going to draw a big reaction and instead there was nothing.
The crowd seemed very uncomfortable when she went all shrew on him.
MR XEROX IS NOT THE RIGHT CHOICE! VOTE HILLARY FOR PRESIDENT!
He handled it better than I thought he would. Did you see her face? She turned into "Ugly Hillary" after the silly season comment.
Hey Bill, I thought the media was supposed to be un-biased?
Obama did well in dealing with the plagiarism issue. But then her angered showed....and negativity...her true side came out...not good for her
Well actually is true..Even my mother who backs obama told me the other day that this guy is repetitive...He's trying to be MLK but Obama YOU"RE NOT MLK
She just lost the debate...
Hey, that's how he can win! Yes, I mean no, I mean well I am confused.
she is throwing all her jabs right now, and i dont blame her, but he is taking the jabs and is landing blows. his answer on plagurism was fantastic and the health care answer was emphatic.
rumble young man, rumble!
She seems desperate and mean. He seems substantive and presidential.
I'm really impressed by Obama tonight.
Obama gets tossed a softball then Hillary crushes him....And your result he wins.....Wow you should judge rigged boxing matches Bill
Bill! Come on! His speeches are xeroxed! Let's here substance!
"silliness" ....yes. He's focusing on the issues and Clinton's working on an easy, cheap upper hand.
She's fighting back. I liked the Xerox comment.
Hillary sure backed away from that one quick and changed the subject.
Hillary needs to drop the "plagiarism" issue. It tanked tonight and she looks petty trying to push it.
Should people start patenting thier speeches? hilary answer!!!
