Everyone Figuring Out Now Who Won . . . .


And it wasn't Mr. Trump.

You can see it in the tweets, in the instapolls (with the typical caveats about flawed methodology, etc.), and in the second-thought, upon-reflection commentary by the pundits. After the "debate" ended, the media's instant reaction was to call it a "s***show," which implied that Joe did poorly too and somehow played a role in the sequence of events that unfolded.

But after that wore off and everyone got over the shock (for whatever reason) that a president of the United States of America would act the way he did and say the things he did . . . well, it's becoming pretty clear that Biden's debate strategy was masterful and he executed it very well. He stood there and let Trump self-destruct, but he wasn't overly aggressive to the point where anyone could really dismiss him as "rude to the president" or any such silliness. He made his points, he kept his cool, and he got in the clear line of the night, saying what so many people have wanted to say to Trump for a while now.

Not bad. I'm feeling more cheerful tonight about this race than I have in a while - and I was already pretty cheerful.

Next up, let's see what Sen. Harris has in store for Mr. Pence.

1. Biden was masterful IMO

he kept smiling , and talking to the American people . I watched with my Dad , He's far more left
than I am and he agrees Biden did well .. my dad kept verbally coaching Biden to keep his sense of humor.. I think Biden might have made some headway with my dad or at least didn't lose him as trump asserted .. Fingerscrossed

2. How I think I would have handled Trump if I were Joe.

I think, at some point, I would have looked at him very quietly and seriously, and said (as we have heard him say similar)...

"You know, I'm praying for you, man. I see that you're hurting. I'm praying for you. Here's my phone number. You can call me any time."

How would Trump have reacted to that?

4. Nice Idea!


We may see that in the remaining debates. And it doesn't hurt to mention it here, because there's nothing Mr. Trump can do to prepare for the moment no matter how much he might anticipate it.
