Predictably, the key issue at Sunday’s Democratic presidential debate in New Hampshire was the Iraq war. Regrettably, candidates spent too much time jockeying over who most opposed to the war four years ago and too little seriously discussing how to responsibly end the debacle now. And the "me, too" talk of health care plans wasn’t very helpful. In the end, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama seemed to strengthen their standing, while John Edwards began to look panicky. Bill Richardson did nothing to erase his embarrassing recent performance on "Meet the Press." It was also striking how persuasive and presidential back-of-the-pack Joe Biden and Chris Dodd sounded — when they managed to get the mike.
