More on the Mondale/Coleman debate. Here’s Byron York’s detailed account of the debate for National Review Online. York sees the debate as a clear victory for Coleman. From York’s account, one gets the impression that Mondale started reasonably well but faded under pressure. According to York, Mondale had trouble with questions about breaking with the trial lawyers over the terrorism insurance bill, what we should do about Iraq if the U.N. fails to act, whether welfare reform has been a good thing, and how to keep Minnesota on the cutting edge of technology. It also sounds like Coleman struck just the right tone by being respectful towards Mondale while persistently challenging him.
