    What an interview round for:

    the next Democratic Nominee for the President of the United States of America

    the next President of the United States of America!

    Is there a Republican PBS Debate?

    (I would think so. When?)

    Clinton's closing statement was better than Sander's closing statement.

    On Criticizing President Obama

    Clinton: Sanders criticizes the President in a way a Democrat should not.

    Sanders: I did not run against him for office (that is the height of criticism)

    PBS News Hour: Analysis of the Debate

    Clinton won opening statement over Sanders.

    Sanders ignores budgetary constraints. Clinton does not.

    Clinton cannot beat Sanders on Wall Street and Corrupting Influence of Money on Elections.

    Foreign Affairs - Iran

    Clinton was more realistic than Sanders, while Sanders was off the realistic time track about when and IF we can EVER get to normalized relations with Iran.

    The Black vote

    Sanders had a breakfast with Sharpton and got Belefonte to endorse him.

    Clinton admires Mandela and Obama.
    In her closing statement, she remembered the victims of the Flint, Michigan water crisis.

    The LGBT Vote

    Clinton, again, in her closing statement, included the trials of the LGBT community. You hear her remembering us. I did not hear it in Sanders' wrap-up.

    StephenOABCThe Black vote


    Sanders marched with MLK in the 1960s. He truly sees all people as equal, and that's what really counts.

    Clinton panders to get votes. Everything that falls our of her mouth is lip service, at best.

    I watched that debate, too, and when Gwen Ifill asked the candidates about the plight of struggling white people, I was somewhat uncomfortable once Clinton really started getting into it. The only time she got truly passionate was when speaking about white people. When she talks about minorities she turns into to a cue card reading robot. It was weird, awkward and telling.

    Sanders is always passionate and fully credible whenever he talks about anyone, black or white.

    Also, for the record, Sanders is Jewish. We've never had a Jewish president, and people don't seem to talk about that much, which could be seen as a good thing, but I think it's sad. We tout having a black or woman president as being a milestone, but for some reason Sanders' being Jewish is something that's just not really being deemed newsworthy, but it actually would be a major historical milestone in the USA.

    Wow, Joe, that first sentence really touched me.

    Politicians have strange bedfellows.
    Is it really a plus for Sanders to say, he can do politics without strange bedfellows?

    A debate between Clinton and Carson on foreign affairs would be interesting.
