How Obama Won (According to 'NYT')

The Times out tonight with their (four reporters) big take on how Obama recovered--"clawed back"-- after faltering in the first debate.
After watching a videotape of his debate performance, Mr. Obama began calling panicked donors and supporters to reassure them he would do better. “This is on me,” the president said, again and again.
Mr. Obama, who had dismissed warnings about being caught off guard in the debate, told his advisers that he would now accept and deploy the prewritten attack lines that he had sniffed at earlier. “If I give up a couple of points of likability and come across as snarky, so be it,” Mr. Obama told his staff.
Plus, new Kristof column:  Can GOP adapt to the real new demographics, not the one the imagine?
