Tough Night for Hillary

Dan Balz recounts the difficulties last night's presidential debate created for Hillary Clinton.

Of course, her savvy campaign team has responded properly in their public statements, touting her as "one strong woman" and hoping that women will be turned off at the specter of Clinton being attacked by a bunch of men, much as her 2000 Senate campaign played the victim card when harmless little Rick Lazio walked over to her podium during a debate (does anyone really think Hillary couldn't eat him for breakfast?!).

This time, though, they'll have to be careful. After all, Hillary isn't auditioning to be one of 100 senators. She's running for President of the United States, and if America can't stand to see a bunch of politicians "gang up" on her, can she really go toe-to-toe with Ahmadinejad and the rest?

The dems sure can dish it out, but they can’t take it! “Tim Russert was mean to me!” Stop it!
President Bush has taken ALL of the lies, trash and slander hurled at him for seven years, and he hasn’t complained once! If you can’t take it, you don’t disserve to be POTUS.
