I didn’t get a chance to watch all of the debate tonight, but what I did watch was worth watching. Especially the end of the debate when she was asked to describe the moment in her life when she was most tested. Her response was truly Hillary’s shining moment ending with a standing ovation:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2Om-c9IMjw
It was a moving and genuine moment from Hillary. One of those moments when it’s hard to discount that she’s given so much of herself and her life to our country and she’s fought the good fight for so long.
Hillary also made some very strong points tonight when she pushed the envelope on the health care issue. It’s an issue that Obama isn’t as strong on, and she had the upper edge in tonight’s debate.
Clinton feels she can gain ground against Obama on the issue, Schneider said.
“She knows Obama is most on the defensive when talking about health care — she understands this issue through and through, and wants the audience to know it,” he said.
When asked how a President Clinton would be different from a President Obama on the economy, both candidates stressed that they have similar plans for the economy, because it’s the “Democratic agenda,” as Clinton described it.
I’ve said here in the past I think Hillary’s health care plan is the best plan. I say that as someone who doesn’t have health care. We can’t make this work with out a solid plan and her plan is the best, in my opinion. She said tonight when she pushed the debate on the issue it is one the top issues she hears about from voters while on the campaign trail. I have no doubt. She heard it from me a few weeks ago when I met her. It’s not just an issue with her, it’s a basic right, as she has said that all American’s should have.
