that’s how you act during a presidential debate! more substance, a lot more decorum and respect, a mutual realization that whichever candidate won was doing it for what the democratic party stands for, as opposed to their next gig on fox or newsmax!

Just caught some of the highlights from last night and Clinton looked OK, imho. Bernie needs some polish and perhaps some caffeine. I really don’t care much about the substance of the debate as it’s over a year until the general election and tones and opinions will change.

Bottom line, I could live with either President Clinton or President Sanders. But now, I’m a Bernie guy.

Gay or straight,
Love is great!

Hillary clearly won the debates. She acted and sounded presidential. She will not be denied. Her time has come. She has paid her dues.

From what I saw of the debate (which I enjoyed more than I thought I would), BOR’s lame ass talking points of last night were proven wrong. He said that, because CNN is a liberal media outfit, Anderson wouldn’t ask any tough questions (such as about Hillary’s flip-flopping) nor would he try to get the candidates to go after each others.

But Anderson proved that BOR’s pre-debate talking points were quite off the mark as he asked good questions, had pointed follow-ups and tried to make the candidates directly address their opponents’ policy stances. He even challenged them when he didn’t think they answered his question. I thought he did a very good job with the task he was given.

BOR’s “liberal media” analysis sucks. Anymore it seems that all he has in his bag of tricks are attacks on the bias of the supposed liberal media. It will be interesting to see if BOR admits that his pre-debate talking points were way off or if he tries to spin the actualities of the debate so that his predictions don’t seem quite as bogus as they were. LOL!

Oh, and on this morning’s F&F, they opened the show by saying that the debate wasn’t exciting and that the winner of the night was – wait for it – Donald Trump! OMG.

Apparently Hasselbeck was upset that the male candidates didn’t take it harder to Hillary. She said that to her it seemed like she was watching “the boys who seemed to be taken in the back room by the feminists and tied one arm behind their back in terms of challenge letting Hillary Clinton win.” So I guess the take away is that, if the media claims that Hillary won the debate, it’s only because the men let her win because of, you know, feminism?

Btw, Daddy Douchey stole the NHs motto when he said, “the good news is: we watched it so you don’t have to.” LOL!

Clinton just brought down the house by defending family leave and smacking down GOP being fine with government interference in a woman’s uterus.

Here comes the climate change question…

O’Malley said he’s the only to propose a clean electric grid by 2050.

Barbara S: Let’s hope that they don’t ‘adjust’ our country to appease the stupid and uniformed.

Martin O’Malley just called out Donald Trump as “that carnival barker in the Republican party” and gets applause.

Hillary calls out “such a difference” between Dem candidates and those in GOP on immigration. Gets big applause.

Mlp! Questions were adjusted for intellect. It’s only fair.

Lincoln Chafee “defends” his vote to undo Glass Steagal l by saying he had just arrived in the Senate and his father had just died. Anderson Cooper astounded. #WorstAnswerEver

Quite a contrast with the questions asked at the GOP debate. Can anyone imagine if ANY of these questions had been asked of them?

Barbara S, me too.

Sanders and Clinton are getting into it over Wall Street and “too big to fail.”

It’s nice to see all the candidates refuse to get dragged into ugly behavior. I would vote for ANY of these people above Any of the Republican candidates.

HRC: The economy does better when you have a Democrat in the White House and that’s why we need a Democrat in the White House.

She’s crushing it.

She truly has. Best I’ve seen her.

Clinton has been outstanding.

Wild applause from the audience after Bernie smacks down email scandal. But Chafee thinks it matters.

COOPER: Secretary Clinton, do you want to respond?

More cheers.

Bernie: The American people are sick and tired of hearing about Hillary’s damn emails!

Hillary hits Benghazi Committee as RNC “vehicle.” “I am still standing” gets a big cheer.

Jim Webb, however, is an ass.

Truman, you’re right.
I was just thinking how they’re ALL speaking of issues that are important to the country.
Not one mention of Jaysus yet.

Totally agree, truman. I’m loving how substantive this debate is. I’d love to see them all in the White House, in different capacities.

What’s next? Email security?

Whether or not you agree with Hillary or Bernie on all of the issues, it’s refreshing to hear intelligent, articulate Presidential candidates. Unlike the GOPiggie clown car with T-Rump at the wheel and Uncle Ben riding shotgun.

Oy, O’Malley is talking about Benghazi failures of intelligence that also affected Syria.

Hillary is explaining “leading from behind” in Libya. Anderson Cooper brings up Benghazi.
