Obama's big moment in the debate

This exchange had a level of emotional intensity that rose above much of the rest of the debate, despite how competitive and combative it was in other spots. The emotional intensity was all Obama's. He beat back the partisanship that the Republicans have been playing up in recent days on the Libya tragedy by taking full responsibility for the security situation, despite Hillary Clinton's effort last night to deflect responsibility to her. Romney seemed petty, like he'd milk anything for partisan advantage.

A much better night for Obama.
