    problem dealing appropriately with outrageous messaging and debate behavior.

    You can only go so far playing the adult. At some point the behavior has to be shut down. Now it can be done in a childish or an adult manner, but it has to be done.

    Between the Republicans, the Clintons and other power blocks, the media have concluded that they can finish Obama off now and they're not going to back down till they're stopped.

    They could well be right.

      Tonight Hillary was culpable in not only remaining silent during the outrageous attacks on Obama but joining in at every opportunity. In fact, some of these issues wouldn't be on the table if not for Clinton.  Hillary is on her game in a debate where she gets to show off her policy homework, so did well 2nd part of show.  During the first part, tho, she came across as a petty, pandering,  opportunistic liar. The Repubs would have dug up some of this stuff anyway but the Clintons sure as hell gave them a heads up.  I won't vote for her; I just decided that tonite and her "I'm a bigger hard ass than the real hardasses on Iran" speech was a final straw.
