Last night's Democratic debate in Ohio between Senators Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Barack Obama (D-Ill.) was saucy! I was rapidly firing IMs to friends: Lots of Did she just say what I think she said?'s and Ooh, snap!'s. They sparred for 16 minutes on health care alone! Trade policy, campaign tactics and Iraq were also on the debate table. I still can't decide who turned out the victor. A tossup, perhaps? Today we talk to our political junkie Ken Rudin about last night's debate and much more: Senator John McCain's (R-Ariz.) apology on behalf of a supporter's disparaging comments about Obama; a new poll that says McCain would beat both Democratic hopefuls in the general election; and next week's crucial Democratic primaries in Texas and Ohio. If you have questions for our political junkie, leave them here.
