Hillary Clinton closes the third Democratic debate by saying, “May the Force be with you.”

It was pretty much inevitable that Star Wars was going to come up in the debate tonight. Politicians have been tweeting about it all week in an attempt to capitalize on some pop culture energy, and Clinton is on a constant likability quest. Perhaps we should be grateful that none of the foreign policy questions were framed in terms of the Galactic Senate or Sith Lords. 

Clinton had a consistently strong debate performance and her closing words felt like a well-earned mic drop—or, in this case, maybe a lightsaber drop.
