Why, Exactly, Did Clinton ‘Win’ Tonight’s Debate?

Posted in Uncategorized by Patrick Truax on November 16, 2007

Because the media says so. “The debate was about Clinton fighting back,” said NBC’s Chuck Todd; “She arguably gave her most commanding performance to date,” added Marc Ambinder of the Atlantic.
