CNN's post-debate coverage from last night's Democratic presidential debate included a focus group of undecided South Carolina voters. The group was asked to rate the candidates throughout the debate and gauge what worked and what didn't work, and who was the group's favorite.

In the final analysis, the undecideds thought John Edwards did the best job of the three candidates -- but that some 50% said that if they voted with their heads instead of their hearts, they would vote for Obama because they felt he has the best chance to win. Edwards' scolding of Obama and Clinton after their first heated exchange scored well, but there was another point that I took from this segment that all the candidates should give notice to. The group's favorable response dropped significantly when the candidates attacked each other, but rose sharply when Clinton went after President Bush and his failed policies. Remember him?
