With this morning's papers come two distinct takes on last night's Democratic presidential debate. See if you can spot the difference.

Newspaper A: "Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton was professorial and emphatic"; Senator Barack Obama "reserved and cautious." Overall, it was "a surprisingly sedate and meandering affair" during which candidates "did not tangle at all."

Newspaper B: Clinton and Obama "locked horns last night," "differing broadly on how they would respond to a new terror strike." Obama "took a pointed jab at her and the other candidates," but "Clinton came down the strongest."

Ah, the marketplace of ideas.
