I'm really feeling Hillary based on her experience, and, except for that baffling Iraq war vote (pretty bad) I do like her. However, Barry is a smooth dude, and he has the uplifting vibe going for him. Last nights debate was very lovey dovey, and the whole time I was thinking "dream team!" and of course at the end ...
