Losing By Winning?

The consensus seems to be that Sen. Clinton won the Las Vegas debate Thursday. That's the view from media outlets left and right.

Rich Lowry, however, points out that the attacks from John Edwards and Barack Obama may have a long-term effect on Mrs. Clinton when it comes to the general election. What was once portrayed as a "right-wing" critique of the Clinton style -- unprincipled and power-hungry -- has now been legitimized within the Democratic primary process. In short, the "character" issue is back (or "the politics of personal destruction," as the Clintons loved to call it) is back.

And this time, Democrats put it back on the table.
