Hillary won Dem debate

There is an axiom in sports that you can't win if you turn the ball over to the other team more than they do for you. Well, the 10/30 dem debate looked liked a sport, but the result didn't follow the rules. Hillary Clinton made numerous errors last night, but still won the debate.

Her errors:

1. She sounded shrill as the night wore on. She might start thinking about demanding 1 hour debates.

2. She gave a Clintonian (bill) denial to ever supporting an effort to allow illegals to get drivers' lic's in NY; even though anyone listening would have swore she just took a stand for them.

3. She didn't have a reasonable answer to the charge that she has "never run" anything, like a state, a business; or been in charge of a large organization. Advocating for the children is nice, but not a winner.

That said, she still won because her competition just isn't tough enough. They don't want to win as badly as she does. If they did, they would attack her relentlessly for the lies, evasions, contradictions both current and in the past. They would question her judgement, and qualifications. Each one of them ultimately doesn't want to actually try to kill the Queen.


It could be because they really think she's going to win no matter what, and why damage your own candidate. It could also be that they don't want to win THAT way. I think they just lack the Presidential timber. Every one of those candidates is demonstrating that they should not be President. That leaves Hillary standing alone.

It's a good thing for me that she just happens to be the one I support.
