Last night’s debate
Yeah, so, there was a Democratic debate last night. Far as I can tell, there wasn’t much said about energy or the environment (except in the clean coal ads brought to viewers by debate sponsor ABEC). Both candidates briefly mentioned creating a green economy, but it wasn’t the subject of any back and forth or detailed questioning. (Though see Glenn below.)
I will say, Clinton’s closing remarks were some of the most graceful of the campaign. She says she’ll fight on even if she loses Texas and Ohio, but I couldn’t help but hear a faint note of concession in her tone:
Overall, I don’t think the debate did much to alter the basic trajectory of the race, which right now seems to be trending inexorably in Obama’s direction.
