Revisiting the best line from the Democratic Debate.

This is the line that is getting all of the buzz today, and well it should.

Many have interpreted that Bernie was too nice to Hillary by essentially dismissing the email "controversy" as a distraction.

However doing so was also great for Bernie because not only does it continue to reinforce his image as a policy driven candidate who does not stoop to smear tactics, but his campaign also managed to raise 1.3 million dollars off of a fundraising email containing that clip.

The guy is no dummy.

However I still think that the overall winner was Hillary.

Unsurprisingly her husband feels the same way.

    I thought Hillary and Bernie did an outstanding job during their first debate! Hillary will have my vote for POTUS, but I've always felt that way.

    What I find most interesting was watching the Morning Joe show (MSNBC) today and seeing Joe state that Bernie 'misspoke' regarding Hillary's emails! Joe's statement was pathetic! He was nothing more than pissed that Hillary was declared the winner of the debate.

      Gryphen, this line may be getting all the buzz today, but all the conversation today has been about Hilary Clinton!

      Personally, I didn't hear any buzz today about this line from the debate but I did her everyone talking about Clinton's outstanding performance and how she's definitely the best candidate to be our next President of the United States!

      Raising 1.3 million dollars is great but it's a hell of a lot more important in the long run to be the main topic of conversation the day after the first debate. It's a shame Bernie Sanders PR team couldn't rave about his debate performance, since it was only mediocre, and they were stuck publicizing his campaign contributions, that was definitely not a good move on their part! Bernie isn't supposed to be the guy that cares about raising campaign money!

    Sarah Palin, being so relevant and up to date will have plenty to write about this Democratic debate and Hillary. Be sure to keep abreast on her Facebook. Bristol must be all the buzz now that she is taking on a political life of her own. She is incredibly busy keeping up with so many important topics on her blog. An amazing fete, considering that she is pregnant. Most women like that would be decorating a pink nursery. Not Bristol, she is out there standing up for her causes.

  6. The Clinton's have a relationship and marriage that I think many of us would find difficult, if not impossible, in our own lives.

    However, over all the years and their very public ups and downs, they seem to me to have settled into a relationship of genuine affection and respect, if not conventional marital bliss.

    They have nothing to hide from each other and since all their warts and imperfections have been on public view. they can accept each other as is, each driven and ambitious.

    I thought both Clinton and Sanders did well in the debate.

      Clinton could not have voted to go to war because the United States Congress hasn't officially declared war on any country since 1942. Her vote was on the "Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002", which many other "war as last resort" Democrats like John Kerry, Harry Reid and Tom Harkin also voted for.

      Y'all ~ 10:34 here... the paranoid person.

      I am alarmed that the Republican party is a mess. It's weakened, bleeding and limping. For crissake, Trump is the front-runner.

      All they need is a fire.

      This was the recipe for Adolf Hitler springboarding himself to his black mark on history. Imagining Trump in power is as hard for some people as it was for Germans to imagine the criminal Hitler as the crazed leader of the ruling regime. It did happen and it wasn't good.

      If it isn't Trump, it could be some other dunderhead (Carson) turning the USA into something unrecognizable. The political parties need strong, sane leaders lest we find ourselves surrounded by more oligarchic dystopia than we're currently experiencing.

      See, i AM paranoid. It is possible to over-ponder history?

    Hillary Clinton Debate Performance Chills Biden Movement

    Hillary Rodham Clinton’s sure-footed performance in the first Democratic presidential debate did not just lift the spirits of her supporters and reassure nervous party officials about her candidacy, it also swiftly cooled talk about the need for Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. to enter the campaign and offer Democrats an alternative.

    With crisp answers to nearly every question, an aggressiveness her rivals did not seem ready for and a level of confidence that has often been obscured over months of questions about her use of a private email as secretary of state, Mrs. Clinton sent an unmistakable message to Mr. Biden and to her party. It was the work of a pitcher who, eyeing an anxious manager on the dugout steps and a reliever warming up in the bullpen, hurls strike after strike to get out of a jam.

    Wednesday morning, Democrats were describing the closing, if not the slamming shut, of a door.

    The more they (Republicans, Conservatives, Fox News) wring their hands over Hillary's emails, Benghazi, etc.
    the more they reveal their lack of substantive positions on policies that really matter.

    Benghazi = strawman
    Hillary's email server = strawman
    HIllary's health = strawman
