The media seems to have reached a near-unanimous conclusion: The Benghazi hearing was great for Clinton.

"At one point, the proceedings turned into a shouting match between Gowdy and Cummings. Clinton straightened the papers on the table in front of her, pausing occasionally to contemplate Gowdy or to smile at Cummings. There were several more rounds of questions, in which her interrogators manifested all of Washington"s pathologies--dysfunction, partisan squabbling, insularity--in such extreme form that Clinton came across not only as a grownup, as her supporters had hoped, but as the most normal person in the room." [http://www.newyorker.com...]

Even Conservative media seems to agree (somewhat): http://www.theatlantic.com...

This analysis is especially hilarious and worth a read: http://www.rollingstone.com...

Democrats who were already supporting Clinton will likely support her further,
Republicans who hate Clinton will find some reason to not cut her some slack,
Undecided voters wont care because they have no idea what happened in the hearing.

Thats my guess

Yea, agreed. They gave her 9 hours of tv time to look like the most professional person in the field

Again. She is not my candidate, however, that display showed more of her statesmanship than any debate or speech could ever do.
