Clinton Camp Regroups After Debate OnslaughtJudging by the rallying call for support that two key members of Hillary Clinton's campaign staff made to supporters following Tuesday's debate in Philadelphia, Team Hillary is well aware that she has had better debating moments -- and that her rivals will continue to pile on in coming weeks.
Judging by the rallying call for support that two key members of Hillary Clinton’s campaign staff made to supporters following Tuesday’s debate in Philadelphia, Team Hillary is well aware that she has had better debating moments — and that her rivals will continue to pile on in coming weeks.
Wait, before you go…
Clinton came under withering assault in the Philadelphia debate, and some supporters on the call agreed with analysts that she stumbled.
“I wouldn’t say she lost her cool,” one caller said. “But I would say she lost her footing.”
The caller added that Clinton’s response to questions about records from her time in the White House that have been sealed by the National Archives “made me roll my eyes.”
The criticisms followed Penn’s assertion that Clinton was “unflappable.” He also said criticisms from Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and former Sen. John Edwards (D-N.C.) would backfire and that he was already “detecting some backlash,” particularly among female voters.
