Wednesday night’s winners, losers

The Fix blogger Chris Cillizza summarized Wednesday’s presidential debate by declaring the winners to be Mitt Romney, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, the split screen and studies (“The first 45 minutes of the debate felt like a conversation between the heads of two opposing think tanks,” Cillizza wrote). And the losers? President Obama, the format, zingers and Big Bird (“Romney may love the big yellow bird, but he told America he would get rid of funding for PBS if he was president. Whither Elmo?”).
