The Democrats: High Stakes in Ohio
photo

Twenty Democratic debates, and last night, the last debate before primaries next Tuesday that could decide the Democrats’ competition. Senator Hillary Clinton and Senator Barack Obama were gladiators once more in a test of ideas, and integrity, and attitude.

Clinton, fierce and focused, was a commanding presence fighting for the lead she has lost. Obama, cool and determined, was under fire and fighting back.

We heard about health care, NAFTA, Iraq, and Saturday Night Live.

This hour, On Point: the last debate on the Democrats’ short road to Ohio, Texas, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

Guests:

Mike McIntyre, columnist for the Cleveland Plain Dealer, covering the Clinton-Obama debate.

Ruth Marcus, columnist for The Washington Post.

Allan Rivlin, partner at Peter Hart Research Associates, a public opinion polling firm which conducts the Wall Street Journal-NBC News poll.

Jaime Castillo, columnist and former political editor at The San Antonio Express-News.
