What I saw was a debate between a leader and a weasel
In my admittedly biased view, the Wisconsin gubernatorial recall debate between Tom Barrett and Scott Walker looked like a debate between a leader and a weasel. The leader won. Tom Barrett kept Walker on the defensive and projected the kind of leadership that could begin to heal Wisconsin's divisions. Walker was Walker -- often coming across as shifty and evasive. In short, a fast-talking weasel.
Afterward, Walker campaign spokesperson Ciara Matthews proved to be even more of a heavy-handed stonewaller than her boss.
