Pride Comes Before The Fall

Are we seeing the beginning of the end for Hillary Clinton, the smartest woman in the world? Her dismal and unprofessional performance in Tuesday night's Democratic presidential debate did some serious damage and you can tell by the frantic scrambling and spinning going on over the past 48 hours.

Will her campaign crumble? No. She will go into attack mode. However, it won't be her doing the attacking. Remember, she needs to appear "warm and gracious" as James Carville humorously described her. I can think of a lot of adjectives for Hillary but "warm and gracious" are not among them.

The question is, will the attack dogs be enough? What will happen in future debates? Hillary has shown a weakness and you can rest assured her opponents will make it a target.

If they play this right and force Hillary into a few more corners, we might all see a side of her that we've only heard about.

By the way, Russert, don't listen to what the Hillary defense squad is saying. you did your job and you did it fairly.
