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.
