Three Down, One to Go: Assessing the Brown/Warren Debate

I agree with your conclusion that there was no clear winner this time, as there was in the first debate. Brown definitely won that one. Warren is clearly far, far left and will rubber stamp any Obama directive. Brown is very careful not to tout his Republicanism because he currently has support from many Democrat leaders and does not want to spook the heavily Democrat voters. Still I think he can and will win.

This is the third time in less than three weeks Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren have squared off in front of a live television audience. As a result, it’s not wholly surprising we heard the same banal talking points -- from both candidates -- on jobs, education, taxes, the deficit, and women’s issues. But it’s also fair to say, too, that the format of this particular debate was markedly different. Given the time restrictions (or perhaps because of the consortium’s prearranged formatting rules) the moderator continued to incessantly fire question after question after question. Why? Well, I’m not entirely sure....
