We listened to the Democratic candidates' Presidential debate on the way to Pittsburgh Saturday. Although I like the idea of a lot of the candidates-- and will be voting for Mike Gravel-- there was no question but that Hillary won the thing. She was impressive. She answered the questions that were asked, directly, with no hemming and hawing. Her answers seemed to us to contain the correct policy answers. Most of all, she seemed passionate and engaged with the audience. I hate it, but the candidate we heard would chew up and spit out any Republican out there.
