And Then There Were Two…
With Edwards out, the last democratic debate before “Super Tuesday” between Clinton and Obama was overall pretty civil. While the democratic debate was a lot better in comparison to the republican debate on Wednesday, if you are one of the ‘undecided’ democrats, tonight’s debate unlikely persuaded you either way.
But I have to give Clinton points for her response to the question about how a Clinton could possibly promote change after decades of a Clinton or Bush in power by saying that “it did take a Clinton to clean up after the first Bush and I think it might take another one to clean up after the second Bush”. Not that I agree with it..and besides, she has used that exact quote before as answer as well.
The last question of the debate was pretty great, with it being “would you consider an “Obama-Clinton” or a “Clinton-Obama” ticket for the White House”? To that, Obama quickly responded that “well there is obviously a big difference between the two”, but went on to say it was too early to be speculating about possible vice-presidents, but Clinton would be on his “short” list.
