  •  Talking past each other to different questions (0+ / 0-)

    Talex is arguing that the content of the debate was positive for Democrats, and dismissing or declining to argue the importance of post-debate spin.

    ZeroCarbRob is arguing that spin is huge in general and destructive in this instance, while dismissing or declining to argue any benefits from the debate content.

    And then the issues of why candidates changed their minds this year, and what that means, is a whole other set of questions.

    I personally agree that spin is huge and cannot be dismissed.  As far as whether the candidates came off well, spin aside, well, I have no opinion - no energy to read the transcript right now and wouldn't watched it on Fox in the first place. My guess is, coming off well to Kossacks wouldn't do a damn bit of good among 98% of Fox viewers.  Is the 2% worth it?  Dunno, maybe.
