Looking at things the morning after, it seems like the fake narrative coming out of yesterday’s debate is that Hillary Clinton is now “coming back” after her fake “stumbling” in the previous debate. As best I can tell, she didn’t actually stumble then and she’s not actually coming back now and nothing has actually changed. I thought John Edwards’ thing about how the last time we had unified Democratic control, we passed NAFTA but killed health care was a nice (if slightly unfair) dramatization of the point that pure partisan thinking doesn’t bring about big progressive change, but it seems to me that there’s little evidence in the public opinion data that attacks — even very warranted attacks — on Bill Clinton’s record can sway a Democratic primary electorate.
