(By msnbc's Joe Scarborough)John Edwards has had a stronger second half while Hillary Clinton has seemed a bit flat. She said she supported George Bush when he took US troops into Afghanistan but...she...uh...wasn't for attacking a country like Iraq that didn't attack us. But, of course, she did. Still, Clinton, Edwards and Obama have done what is required to get out of the first debate. Hillary Clinton should be the next Democratic nominee for president if she avoids big mistakes. Tonight she did.
