What did you think of Hilary tonight?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I thought she was spot on, all her answers were great and she appeared relaxed and humorous, yet when I watched cnn and our local channel report it, all they did was show clips that did not make her look so great, and all the clips where he was not stammering, which he did the majority of the time.. The press is really biased against her. You would have to see the whole debate to know what really happened. She was great, and I expect she will take pa. in a landslide, she has to, Obama cannot beat mcmcain, plus he doesn't know what the hell he is doing, he is in way over his head.

I wasn't able to watch this tonight, so I'm hoping it will be re-aired, or that I can watch it online. I love Hillary and volunteering for her campaign is pretty easy. I was an Obama supporter up until a couple months ago, but it was a serious examination of the issues and her answers that really grabbed me.

I didn't watch it. I have been reading about it this morning and from the comments of the public, the gist of what I am hearing is that the moderators did a terrible job.

Still not asking the hard questions as far as I am seeing.

The dismal performance of ABS seems to have overshadowed the debate.

The moderators did a great job, they came in with follow up questions and did not let either skate buy with a wishy washy answer. You have to watch it because if you listen to the biased talk show hosts, all you hear is how they didn't stick to the issues, and how hard Obama tried to stick to the issues. Bullcrap.They are crying foul because he lost big, and looked like a dumby. he couldn't answer the questions, so he would immediately say, oh but thats not an issue. The issue is can you think onyour feet? The answer is NO and he will never be able to handle mccain. Furthermore , there were plenty of issue questions for which Hilary gave in depth detailed answers. He would try but then get into philosophy of how he is going to do things different, he didn't ahve good answers because he doesn't know where to start, he hasn't had enough experience. WE don't have time for him to have on the job training. He is in way over his head, and he should get out now.

I agree, I think Hilary won this debate. Whether you like her or not, she really did answer most of the questions.

I was not so impressed with Barack. He actually had a couple of answers where his logic negated his reasoning for a previous answer. I felt like he was trying to put a gloss over things without specifics.

Hilary had details and repeatedly said if someone wanted ever more detail on any of her plans, everything was fully written out on her website.

The moderators did a good job. I thought they asked direct questions and twice I remember them going back and saying..."you didn't answer the question...".

I hope everyone who is making an opinion either watched it themselves or if a transcript can be found they actually read the transcript. The spin that has gotten really out of control.

They are finally asking harder questions to Obamitable, but they are still not asking hard enough questions. They're not really pinning him down the way they should be.

Exactly, and I repeat, while they did some "interrogating", they were not nearly hard enough on him, and they didn't push him to the wall like he should have been. She says one thing out of context about Bosnia, and he goes on for hours about how she's a liar, but I sat there and caught him in at least two lies that I've heard him say himself. And he always gets into a snit after he starts throwing stones, and then gets a stone thrown at him. He started throwing them and then started on with "oh, Hillary is out to get me, poor me, I'm so innocent, I didn't do anything wrong, wshe's so mean to me, wah wah wah wah wah".. if he can't handle a debate with her, and she's at the very least attempting to keep the democratic party cohesive, what the heck is he going to do against McCain?????

Yes, the spin is amazing. Everything about Obaminable is hypocracsy. The media's spin on how evil Hillary is to Obama when poor little hate filled venom spitting Obama gets a small dose of what he's doing done to him.. ridiculous. She got three superdelegates this past week. Not a word on it in the media.

He gets one, the news is all over it.

He says she says mean things about him. His campaign newsletters daily are "hate hillary" newsletters.

I'm so sick of this man.. you know, the sad thing is I never thought I'd hate a democratic candidate more than I hate the Bush administration, nor did I ever think I'd hold on in more disdain. Obama has proven me absolutely wrong on this. Oh, I guess I'm just bitter.. that's what I get for being a Pennsylvanian.

Hillary did a wonderful job with this debate. I have to go back and watch the rest of it.. I went to sleep on the sofa about half way through because I'd worn myself out being peeved at Obama and his lack of real answers, his bold faced lies and contradictions and his attacks on Hillary.

Hillary, girl, you rock!!! I'm voting for her even if I have to write in. (And if I can't, I'll be voting for Nader).
post #8 of 26
Cats, if you vote for Nader against Obama and McCain, you may as well vote for Obama.

I should have watched it but I was tired and went to bad. What I heard about the Mods were they asked Tabloid questions and Obama said, "Uhhhh"
a lot.

I have said it all along, Obama can't play with the big boys, he will topple like a house of cards I have a feeling. The dude is a kindergartner compared to Hillary and McCain.

It still astonishes me, just what do people think his qualifications are that he even has the foggiest idea of how to be POTUS. Only in America
post #9 of 26
watched it before i came in to work tonight.
Hillary, made obama look like what he is. obama lack of experence really came shinning though.

lol and i am still voting for mccain. (unless i stop being lazy and run for oiffice)
post #10 of 26
I cannot stand either one of them, but I heard she was given a really going over by the media for knocking back a shot of liquor when she was being interviewed at the place where it it made.
Like I said, I can't stand the woman, but come on, the woman is over 21, a presidential candidate, and had probably had a long day. Big deal if she has a sociable shot in the evening. It's not like she was on camera in a bar doing body shots off some cute little college boy or something. (though the mental pic of that gives me the shivers) I think that is probably the least hypocritical thing she has done from the very little drivel I have listened to from her.
I will stop hijacking this thread now!
post #11 of 26
What REAL experience does Hilary have? I can't stand the woman. Is she supposed to be experienced because she is married to a former President? I didn't watch the debate, because I was sleeping when it was on, but I like Obama, and I think he's less of a crook than either Hilary or Mc Cain. I would just like to see someone who isn't a crook make it, for once.
post #12 of 26
I take it you haven't heard about Obama's buddy Tony Rezko then.

You didn't answer the question Hope, what experience and qualifications does Obama have. My word, I have looked up the voting record on this First Term Senator and it is horrendous.

I'm sorry but voting "Present" instead of "yes" or "no" on issues is not the way to represent your constituents. He did that MANY times.

Plus, there was what, 6 times, that once he voted, he said, "I pushed the wrong button, I really meant to push the other button" Well, once you vote, you don't get a second chance to change your vote So then he would say something like, "well I want to go on record that I REALLY meant to push the other button" Lame, pathetic, indecisive IMO.

Why does only Obama have a problem with the buttons?
post #13 of 26
I thought that Hillary was outstanding in the debate and I've got new respect for her!
post #14 of 26
A potential president that has trouble with buttons is a scary thought. I must admit that I have not had the time or inclination to read a lot of the info on any of the candidates like I usually do, but this whole primary has the ring of a nasty, mudslinging dog and pony show. And the election has not even gotten underway. I have to catch up!
post #15 of 26
Just looking on from the outside, I'd be worried for you folks in the US and also us to a certain degree here in Canada if Obama gets in.

"Dropping over dead"! Cindy, we've actually managed to agree on something! Uh, oh!

I've so reached the "saturation point" that I'm prepared to give my vote to anybody not endorsed by the Bush/Cheney Administration. That's sad.

I had such high hopes for him!

Why must choosing the leader of your country mean picking the least worst candidate? I long for someone I can have (mostly) total faith in. At this rate I'm going to be supporting McCain, just because he at least seems dependable.

McCain, though, is probably going to be getting a lot more coverage like this as the general election draws near, and may not be as attractive to some voters as he is now: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/22/us...nted=1&_r=1&hp

Quote:
Mr. McCain has occasionally rebuffed Mr. Diamond's entreaties as inappropriate, but he has also taken steps that benefited his friend's real estate empire. Their 26-year relationship illuminates how Mr. McCain weighs requests from a benefactor against his vows, adopted after a brush with scandal two decades ago, not to intercede with government authorities on behalf of a donor or take other official action that serves no clear public interest.

Unfortunately, in Canada we have the same situation. I don't like Stephen Harper but I like his party rep in our area so I bit the bullet and voted for our area rep which helped put Harper in as PM. I wish we could vote directly for a PM instead of through local government votes.

Hilary gets on my last nerve. Always has, always will. No way has she "won" any of those debates.
