Jennifer Granholm downplays, says debate was 'just a debate

News

On Current TV last night former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm attempted to assuage any anxiety President Obama's supporters may have after the presidential debate.

"I don't think this debate is going to impact the presidential race much less the down ballot races. I think it is just a debate," she said. "We're going to come back and we are going to see a different president. You're going to see a much more pugilistic president, I think, in his second debate."

Granholm also reminded viewers of the upcoming vice presidential debate. "You've also got Joe Biden coming up with Paul Ryan, that's going to be a fascinating debate. Democrats, progressives, don't be worried."

Immediately following last night's debate, Mitt Romney was widely seen as having come out on top.

On Fox News Brit Hume said "This was a very strong performance by Governor Romney. He needed one. He got it.”

Over at MSNBC, Ed Schultz said Obama's performance was "disappointing."

"It looked like Mitt Romney wanted to be there," Democratic Strategist James Carville said on CNN, "and President Obama didn’t want to be there."
