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.

"Kum-Bay-Yahhhh, m'Lord, Kum-Bay-Yahhhh...."
It was a team effort last night... to put the Clinton Coronation back on track. Wolfie, Suzanne, Obama, Edwards... all got high-fives from Huma and the gang.
during Bills time in office they had full access to FBI files...
Wolf pre-warned on how to handle her...
I’m starting to get the feeling this is going to be a HRC v. Giuliani election. Thompson, my choice, just doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, especially with McCain regaining some lost ground. Romney, not my idea of a conservative, seems to be convincing many folks he IS a conservative, and he and the lower-tier candidates are dividing the conservative support that would be going to Thompson.
I see Morning Joe has begun the Hillary cheerleading this am.. My take on it..
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.
Hillary had thick makeup on her face but they missed her wrinkly neck. Notice she had the black pants on to minimize the wide back end. Campbell Brown should have come back to her and simply said Hillary, do you want to answer the question or not?
Obama is a weird duck who wants to play the professor and is pretty poor at head to head combat.
Edwards is good at making his points but needed some one line soundbytes. He continually had to keep saying, Wolf, I am almost done which is a bad sign he spoke too long.
Kucinich - if anyone wants communism, here it is.
Richardson - looks constipated and short of breath while talking, somewhat incoherent. Needs to lay off the tacos before the debates. The human rights man who has forgotten 9-11.
Dodd - Cant you picture this old fogy sitting in a nursing home pointing his finger and lecturing the nurses aides as the know it all that he is. Pathetic candidate really.
You’re quite right. The Dems don’t REALLY have a candidate!!
Hillary has NO qualifications for President!! Period!!
Hillary’s answers were empty, that is, hyperbole and no substance. You nailed the other candidates. The whole thing was staged, tedious, and repetitious. The spin machines are doing their thing to prop up Hillary’s drab performance.
Yeah, as if the ‘diamonds or pearls’ question wasn’t planted.
"Hillary did GREAT last night!"
from pookies toons this morning
I'm shocked I tell you...shocked!
Wolfie threw in the towel... no Russert-style questions for ‘the little lady’ this time. No doubt Rapist42 gave him a bit of the Chris Wallace treatment over the phone... and Wolfie’s p_d... turned to pudding.
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. So they only need to brainwash a small number, or give illegals or prison felons voting rights, and they win. The example is the gigolo Kerry who is actively disliked by most of his fellow Senators, came within a hair of winning. Scary
I had heard that Dodd’s local natives are tiring of his useless galavanting and fantasizing about the “Dodd” administration. One can only hope but the windbag will be in the Senate till he drops over I am sure. He truly is pathetic, and on top of that, he was bashing the Ted Kennedy NLCB program. Wonder what Teddy thought while seeing his handiwork ridiculed.
A sucessful effort at damage control.
