Over a year out, what does a debate win mean?


Over a year out from the November 2008, Senator Obama was a blip on the radar and Senator Edwards was the big challenger as both campaigns were trying to lay the groundwork to steal Iowa from the inevitable Senator Hillary Clinton who was gearing her attacks and infrastructure towards the general election not her opponents in a proportional primary.

Romney’s pundit declared “win” in the 2nd debate of the season against a field isn’t completely set and in front of a voter base that isn’t completely dialed into the 2012 election is a qualifying heat. There are many more heats to run before they even get to the Pro tour: primary season.
