UK election debate

For the first time in UK history, the leaders of the 3 main parties had a live, televised debate. This has been happening in the US for sometime, and whatever happens in America eventually happens in the UK.
I didn't get to watch it but from what I have read (and here) the clear winner was the Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg. The Liberals can't win the general election but they could take significant votes from the other parties, making it difficult for there to be any clear winner. It will be interesting to see if this US-style debate has any real effect on peoples' opinions in the run-up to the election.
