LAS VEGAS, Nevada (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Clinton stepped into the ring Thursday in this city known for prize fights, successfully beating back an onslaught of punches thrown from the left and right as her opponents sought to rattle the front-runner seven weeks before the Iowa caucuses.

Perfect cartoon to start out the morning you posted there sure fine.

I can see Carville telling Wolfie now.

"Now Wolf, here's how we get out of this illegal alien NY drivers licenses problem, we want a yes or no only question,,, you got that Wolfie? We don't want her to blab her trap anymore than she already has,,,you got that Wolfie? You give us that yes or no question, and we will take care of it from here,,,you got that Wolfie?

Hillary gets her softball,

Wolfie gets a call from Slick, "Wolf, you can breath easier now".

Yup... it was started right after Rapist42 finished his conference-call with Blitzer.

Well, good morning to everyone...I made the mistake of tuning in to Frank Luntz chatting with the Friends on Fox. GUSHING was Frank over Mrs. Clinton!!! His audience meters plunged during Obama's "attack" and soared with her tired, lame "kitchen" line. He chose 5 audience members who just raved and raved over her performance, her direct answers to FIX everything. One poor fellow said that she wore pantsuits because she is the only one who "wears the pants."

WOLF TURNS 'LAMB'; CLINTON CAMPAIGN SAYS CNN HOST 'OUTSTANDING'



CNN debate moderator Wolf Blitzer did an 'outstanding' job in Vegas, a senior adviser to the Hillary campaign said early Friday. 'He was outstanding, and did not gang up like Russert did in Philadelphia. He avoided the personal attacks, remained professional and ran the best debate so far. Voters were the big winners last night.'

A rival campaign insider charges: 'Wolf turned into a lamb. No follow-up question on Clinton's huge flip on drivers licenses?'

Last night Hillary was the only candidate who looked "alive" in front of that ghastly background.

I think someone tipped her off to wear bright makeup in cool colors, to wear a light suit and to put pale streaks in her hair.

after the clintons archived those FBI files, they can really say to most of the high profile people,

“WE OWN YOU”

If I were Joe Biden, Dodd or Richardson, I would be so insulted that with all their experience, they are not even in the top tier, but Hillary, just because she was 1st lady, is somehow qualified to be president of the U.S. and commander in chief. She has absolutely no qualifications.

Did anyone else notice she looks like she’s put on a few lately? She’s big but this is the biggest I’ve seen her, I think. She needs to stay away from the food tables at all those barbecues.

The Clinton staff is back to that preposterous comment about Russert “ganging up.”

Biden cant figure out if he wants to be the designated standup comic or actually run for Prez. Considers himself THE expert on judiciary. Comes across as a self inflated arrogant windbag.

But Biden is an arrogant self-inflated windbag*!

*So is ninety-five percent of the Senate....

Obviously, we don’t have a candidate either if it’s going to be one of the top tier Rinos.

Don’t you ever get tired of the inmates running the asylum? Don’t you ever yearn for some really sane leadership in this country?

Poor candidates but with the mindless ignorant voters who have been told by the media for 7 years to hate Bush and the GOP, I bet Pee Wee Herman would still get 49% as a Dem.

I'd say forty percent, but therein lies the problem.

Thank God for Drudge...even Fox is cheerleading for Mrs. Clinton this morning.

Geraldo on with the Friends now ripping the Breck Girl because he won’t go on Fox...but he will go on CNN with that "awful, terrible, racist, anti-immigrant" Lou Dobbs. Geraldo prefers Mrs. Breck Girl and wishes she would run. When asked about the debate, he said he took a trip on his boat instead and bored us with some all-about-me tale.

It's apparent that Hillary's handlers helped her to choose a crisp, new look in
hair, makeup, and jacket to fit better with CNN's backdrop.

The other candidates looked terrible.

Diamonds or snowy white pearls would have been fine in that setting.

Yes. A particular CNN camera, which showed her from the rear, made it clear that her backside is spreading.

This is my first democrat debate. All of it was an obvious set up for Hillary. Biden & Dodd are there to run cover and wasted time for Hillary. Kassinich is there for comic relief. Obama and Edwards are there for cheap competition. Hillary is good at quips and short bits. More than that and she is sour, stupid and contradictory.

All this is cheap soap opera with dangerous consequence.
