Debate Quasi-Blogging

I wasn't really watching after the first half hour or so, but it seemed to me that Edwards was doing a better job than Obama of landing blows on Clinton and that something about the dynamic of so many different candidates slamming HRC was weird. Weird in a way that helps her or weird in a way that hurts her I couldn't quite say. Insofar as people fear that Obama may not have the requisite instinct for the jugular, I don't think he was allaying that fear. On the other hand, if he wins Iowa does that prove he's a winner and suddenly put him neck-in-neck in the national race?
