Elizabeth Warren, according to the experts, should be thrilled because she was beaten in the Ohio debate.
That was good news, because it shows that she is the true leader. Forget this Biden.
"Warren's enchanted campaign has just entered a brutal new phase," warns Politico.
Except, it was not that brutal. Disagreements in the CNN / New York Times debate on Tuesday were relatively civil-political abuses. Nobody followed their character.

In addition, the candidates who challenge Warren are also entangled in the individual numbers. This reduces the impact of this exchange.
Two of them had very good nights. Amy Klobuchar repeatedly called on Warren, the first to point out that her Medicare-for-All Plan would free 1
Marc Lacey of the Times tried three times to convince Warren to admit what Bernie Sanders already has, namely, the mid-class taxes would go below their plan. And three times Warren dismissed the question, saying that wealthy and big corporations would pay more for health care, and the middle class would pay less, completely eluding the tax question with a simple yes-or-no question. He may have had his best debate on the campaign and made an eloquent pitch for moderate ideas. And his strongest moment was an exchange about Beto O's Rourkes buyback program, when he said, "I do not need any lessons from you in terms of courage, political or personal." Buttigieg is of course a war veteran in Afghanistan. 19659003] On the other hand, he beat only Beto who can not get anywhere fast.

Politico's main story is: Candidate boasting to have a plan for everything was denounced because of her had not stated exactly how she would pay for her most expensive proposal. She has been accused – sometimes subtly, sometimes explicitly – of being naive and dishonest, of not respecting the ideas of her colleagues, of demolishing people and of failing to legislate. She was assaulted for believing in a policy that was "punishing" and a theory of governance that was a "dream."
Finally, they talked about Ellen.
The Washington Post declared Warren one of its winners:
"For the first time in any of these debates, Warren was sustainably attacked. She had somehow avoided it through a combination of debate format, Joe Biden's leadership in early polls, and Warren's unique political Teflon. But that changed on Tuesday. Warren was the focus, and the other candidates focused only on Biden. It was not smooth for Warren … but it was a confirmation that she may now be the front runner. "
Look, the reason why Warren drove so smoothly – besides being in a very good race -based campaign – is that the press pretty much loves her. I lost track of how often she bloated in Oklahoma, Harvard, as a bankruptcy attorney with the Consumer Protection Agency. She gets a hundredth of the media exam, which is addressed to Biden, who is not a press favorite.
If that changes, you know she's the front runner.
Biden had some strong moments, especially in relation to Syria, but his answers to his son were weak – especially as Hunter Biden gave a bad judgment on ABC this morning when his father pronounced his verdict that night. Biden paused when Anderson Cooper went only once and none of the other Democrats wanted to go there.
Media consensus states that Biden had another uneven night and he tends to stumble across his words. Despite the poor debate reviews and the fact that he has to defend Ukraine, he sticks to his followers.
The bottom line is that the impeachment drama quickly drowns out this debate, which has 8.3 million viewers a further decline. There will not be days full of stories about Klobuchar or Buttigieg that usually give them the chance to prevail. If one of them tries to become Warren's main moderate rival, the Biden campaign essentially has to collapse.
with the President calling the speaker "third-class politician" pushed the Ohio debate far behind in many cable news programs.
