The latest news on Clinton, Hillary
It had been a week of ugly between Sen. Hillary Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama leading up to today's final Democratic presidential debate in Iowa before the state's crucial January 3 caucuses. So ugly that before the event, Clinton privately apologized to Obama for comments by her New Hampshire cochair Bill Shaheen suggesting that Obama's self-disclosed teenage drug use could compromise his candidacy. Shortly after the debate, the campaign announced Shaheen had stepped down. But anyone who tuned into the debate expecting to see fireworks between the two warring campaigns--or any of the campaigns, for that matter--went away disappointed. For the first hour, it was a polite, almost subdued affair. With little to differentiate themselves on most of the issues (end the war, rework the tax system, promote energy independence, reform healthcare and entitlement programs), it boiled down to the candidates making their familiar cases on the basis of experience. Or change. Or style.
