This is how pathetically stupid the whole Obama "plagiarism" issue really is:

Remarkable that Obama hasn't used the "you do it too" response. He's taking the upper road. Nor has he launched any underground campaign to distribute these videos. On the other side, newspapers and tv programs who have pointed out her own reuse of words (there have been a bunch throughout her campaign) also add "not that there's anything wrong or unusual about it, as politicians have been lifting lines from each other forever, they're just good lines!"
What baffles me is that in 2004, we were saying Kerry had to go on the attack, and that's a big part of why he lost: he just didn't defend himself. Is Obama the kind of guy who will both protect himself against nastiness while keeping the higher road? Could Obama have survived in the 2004 primaries? Is America different this time around, including independents are republicans?

Also, the "change you can xerox" was very unprepared. She said it, then had nothing to follow it with to give it context. I remember watching this, and noticing that while he was talking, she wrote something down and was grinning at herself. I think that's what happened. She came up with it on the fly, it wasn't prepared for her by her debate team.

bad comment by clinton.
but she had a good debate because i think she came to terms with her new job as being Obama's strong man in the Senate. She could have taken the election into the gutter and she didnt. other than this one case.
Obama won the debate though. not just last nite but during the whole campaign. he responded without attacking and he clearly represents a new kind of politics.
He'll win on the 4th and clinton will concede on the 5th or the 6th.
