One thing that's got to work in Tsai's favor...

She doesn't retreat, she pushes back. That's gotta help.

she tried, but only ended up sounding argumental. sorry to say, she still complicates things, she acts if she were still some member of the "debate society" who makes argument not for a topic she believes but she is given. her elaborate "read between the lines" approach will actually reinforce her image of being "hollow tsai". everyone knows she is still trying to avoid the "92 consensus" issue. she is now on defensive and in where kmt wants her in. it is a hole she is in.

She is avoiding the "92 consensus" issue because there is no "consensus"! Show us the proof that China and Taiwan reached any such consensus, i.e. one china but under different interpretations, before asking anyone with reasons to treat the so called consensus seriously. The fact remains China is sticking to the "one China" part and no other interpretations whilst Ma's KMT sticking to the "different interpretations". There is no consensus at all, wake up!!

Again, "One China / different interpretations" does not a consensus make -- even if they DID agree to it.

if we were to ask for proof by the strickest tradtional sense, i.e., some kind of written documentation, we would fall right into the kmt trap. kmt has been putting on argument same as, "when an atheist asks for the proof of the existence of God from christian, when the girl friend asks for the proof of the love from the boy friend? the proof will be self evident around us no matter how circumstantial it might be!!". kmt has been saying the proof is on the ecfa, the air link, the financial link, even the tourists you can not escape bumping into in the mesuem or 101. there are only two people from the dpp side who actually tried to meet up with challenge of the argument, one is joseph wu, who proposes to use "macao model" to continue sustaining the relationship, or 南方朔, who believes the new taiwanese consensus can still be accepted by china for reason that is far too complicated for average people to understand, or for the matter, too difficult to market simplistically to the people. kmt actually stages a much better campaign this time than before, dpp lacks simplicity in refuting the claim which is a major fault in the campaign going forward. frankly, by denying this reality is not helping. it is almost trying to preach atheism among atheists. comforting but not winning anyone over from the other side.
