AUSTIN, Texas (CNN) - You would have to be a Philadelphia lawyer to tell the difference between these two candidates.
Neither has really gone after each other, even though the moderators have given them ample opportunity.
Now it's virtually a matter of who says the same thing better. And if this continues, Obama will likely win - he's always been viewed as the more effective communicator.
Clinton needs to start challenging Obama if she wants to gain the upper hand.
- CNN Senior Political Analyst Bill Schneider
Obama is full of hot air.
He is stumbling over his ideas. Bad night for Obama, but he has nothing to worry about; CNN and others will only highlight only his words.
McCain will destroy Obama.
Give us OBAMA/HILARY TICKET
campbell brown needs to hush up and let clinton speak. and what the heck is jorge doing asking a question like that? a bilingual america – what kind of question is that? learn english and hush up!
OBAMA VOTES BY SAYING "PRESENT" THIS RELIEVES HIM OF HAVING TO TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY.
I am very concerned that Obama has little to NO experience with dealing with foreign affairs. This scares me. We need an experienced leader, therefore my vote goes to Sen. Clinton.
This is HISTORY !!!!!!
Hillary talks about solutions, while Obama takes her solution and adds a few comments. More than once he states their solutions are the same will very little difference. Like the words he has taken from Patrick, he takes from Clinton her solutions on the issues.
Does Obama think he is "right" about everything? Is he a prophet?
He says he's ready but if he thinks the war is wrong, how can he possibly say he will do everything to protect our national security? Appeasement is not the answer. Our presence over there is stopping the terrorists from attacking us.
Hillary is showing her broad knowledge of all subjects tonight. No one can deny that now.
Ok, Barrack-- Did you vote to fund the war spending bill, the surge? Humm ,but your complaining we did not have enough weapons when we went to war.
Hillary clearly has the more international credentials and demonstrated that tonight. Hillary knows the international arena far more than Obama, and it is unfortunate that her campaign has not communicated more effectively on this issue.
clinton is the better candidate for three reasons:
1) obama has no experience and has made no change while in the senate
2) obama has not come up with any of his own ideas as shown in this debate
3) obama's solutions for his change are no clear.... i have gone to his website and he is very vague... saying you are going to "help educate children is a great idea, but i am more interested in HOW you are going to go about this...."
all in all.... vote for clinton if you want a president that is experienced, knows what to do to make a difference, and will do it.
Obama is just proving over and over that his ideas come from Hillary, not him. He rambles on and on and says nothing.
People, open your eyes.
He was opposed to Iraq?! Isn't that special!! He wasn't even in the Senate! Neither was I.
Wake up America!
Barak is great at the rah rah stuff but he cannot speak to the issues the way Hillary can.
Ok the horse is dead now!
Campbell Brown needs to quit interrupting everyone!!! HOw did she get to host this debate anyway!!
CNN: what's with the stupid graphic designs on the screen, those spidery lines all over the bottom of the screen? very distracting.
I still maintain my point that, Obama, with his so called inexperience is surely a smart guy. What if he has been doing this work for thirty something years?
sorry to say, if Hillary can't admit that the surge is working, how can she admit to her own short comings if she is called up short?
Obama doesn't understand the economy when he wants to raise everyone's taxes and cutting taxes is what creates jobs and expands the tax base....
Clinton is not being given a fair shot. She keeps being cut off during her answers while Obama is allowed to speak freely.
In each debate, it is clear that Clinton has well thought out solutions to the problems we face. She never gets the credit from the pundits but she clearly knows what she is talking about.
Another point to make, they from both paties are all senators, none have any experience as the commander in chief. So now that is out of the way it comes down to who do you trust?
