The Force Was With Hillary Clinton in the 3rd Democratic Debate
By Ed Kilgore
1. Spinoff earned-media winner: Clinton.
The moment that will almost certainly be replayed the most in the brief period of interest in this low-viewership debate was Clinton's corny but perfectly timed shout-out to the new Star Wars movie at the very end.

As for HRC, she's already regained the "inevitability" factor she came into the Invisible Primary carrying. Even if Sanders somehow wins Iowa and New Hampshire, Clinton still has a far more plausible path to the nomination, thanks to her standing in the many states that are not as honkified and activist-dominated as the first two. But the whole world will still be watching her for a stumble. It did not happen at St. Anselm's College.

"This is incredibly disappointing," Mook said, before driving the knife deeper. "This is someone who said he was going to run a different kind of campaign. Their staff stole data from their campaign and they are now fundraising off it"
The Sanders campaign.
And I better not now because if I do it may be evidence of a crime that has been committed.
