Since the last debate there has been even more friction between the Sanders and Clinton camps, and with one primary victory apiece chances are that both are feeling the pressure.
There is also the fact that Hillary already has 394 delegates (including Super delegates) to Sanders 44 to make those angered at the standard quo even more frustrated at politics in this country.
So yes, I do expect that there are going to be sparks tonight.
A couple of things that COULD be used as bludgeons tonight.
One being that the Justice Department has issued subpoenas to the Clinton Foundation.
And two being that some Sanders supporters are sending this photo of a young Bernie Sanders around to buoy op his civil rights cred.
Problem is that it is NOT Bernie Sanders in the photo.@cnn @CNNPolitics @FoxNews @MSNBC @BernieSanders Bring up Sanders sit-in to protest segregation at the school.! pic.twitter.com/iRs23p2y8u— Mark (@madman12373) February 11, 2016
Still I DO expect that there will be the kind of dignity during the debate that is in short supply on the GOP side of the aisle, so hopefully at the end of tonight we will not have seen anything that makes us feel shame about our candidate or our party.
As always you can follow me here on Twitter.
