First night, I thought Warren held steady and Booker and Castro looked very good. So did Inslee, but he's so far back as to be a no-hoper.

Tonight, Sanders, Biden, Harris, Buttigieg, and six other no-hopers.

Biden and Sanders did well. Harris was up and down, but I think the final trend is up a little. Buttigieg looked good, but didn't land any solid punches.

Bennett actually was remarkably good, but no star power. Too vague.

So. . . out of 23, I give you the six who matter. Biden, Sanders, Warren, Booker, Harris, Buttigieg.

There. Simplified it for you.

Walter, these are the ones you want to focus your hate and lies on. It's the Christian thing to do.

From what I saw......I agree with your assessment. Mayor Pete is looking better and stronger all the time. Harris was very good. Both were laser sharp. Sanders was pretty good. Biden was more traditional....but good. There were some pretty good lines.......from several of them. Over all it was interesting and rather stimulating. These debates are very valuable as one gets a good sense of the participants.

My gawd! Other than Gabbard, I have never seen such a large bunch of recycled flakes in my life.
Did you notice there were no US flags on the Debate Stage last night?

Yup, that's right: the perfect government for Zion. I wonder which democrats Sheldon Adelson or his buddies are funding? Knowing that will tell the tale.

Kamal Harris goes after Joe Biden on race in U.S. presidential debate

MIAMI — Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris confronted front-runner Joe Biden on race during a debate on Thursday, calling his remarks about working with segregationist senators “hurtful” and questioning his 1970s opposition to school busing.
In a Democratic contest where racial issues have figured prominently, Mayor Pete Buttigeig of South Bend, Indiana, also faced pointed questions about accusations of racism within the city’s predominantly white police force in the aftermath of a fatal police shooting of a black man.
Harris, the daughter of a black father from Jamaica and an Indian mother, was at the center of several heated exchanges during the second night of debates among Democrats vying for the right to challenge Republican President Donald Trump in the November 2020 election.
Harris said the issue of race was deeply personal for her, noting she was bused to school as classes were integrated in California.
She looked straight at Biden and challenged him to explain himself.
“I do not believe you are a racist. And I agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground,” said Harris, 54, a U.S. senator from California.
“But I also believe – and it’s personal and it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country.”
Biden, who has faced heavy criticism for his recent comments saying he worked with segregationists decades ago to get things done in the U.S. Senate, defended his record on civil rights.
“It’s a mischaracterization of my position across the board: I did not praise racists. That is not true,” he said. “If we want to have this campaign litigated on who supports civil rights and whether I did or not, I’m happy to do that.”
“Everything I have done in my career, I ran because of civil rights and continue to think we have to make fundamental changes and those civil rights, by the way, include not just African-Americans, but the LGBT community,” he said.

During the debate, the contenders frequently attacked Trump and sharply disagreed over the best way to boost access to healthcare insurance coverage.
One of the lesser-known candidates, U.S. Representative Eric Swalwell, 38, also trained his sights on Biden, urging the 76-year-old to pass the torch to younger candidates.
“I was 6 years old when a presidential candidate came to the California Democratic convention and said it’s time to pass the torch to a new generation of Americans,” Swalwell said. “That candidate was then-Senator Joe Biden.”
“He was right when he said that 32 years ago. He is still right today,” Swalwell said.
Biden responded: “I’m still holding onto that torch. I want to make it clear.”

Biden and the candidate running second in polls among Democrats, Bernie Sanders, turned their fire on Trump repeatedly.
“The American people understand that Trump is a phony, that Trump is a pathological liar and a racist and that he lied to the American people during his campaign,” said Sanders.
Biden, the former vice president making his third run for the White House, said Trump’s tax cuts for the wealthy and other economic policies were increasing economic inequality in the United States.
“Donald Trump has put us in a horrible situation. We do have enormous income inequality,” Biden said. “The one thing I agree on is we can make massive cuts in the $1.6 trillion in tax loopholes out there, and I would be going about eliminating Donald Trump’s tax cuts for the wealthy.”
The debate also included U.S. Senators Michael Bennet and Kirsten Gillibrand, former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, self-help guru Marianne Williamson and entrepreneur Andrew Yang. All six are polling nationally around 1% or less.
Like the Democrats who debated on Wednesday, the contenders disagreed on the best way to expand healthcare coverage. Asked who would back a plan that eliminated private insurance, only Sanders and Harris raised their hands.
The Democrats frequently talked over one another, shouting to get their points across as some of the lesser-known contenders tried to get noticed.
“Americans don’t want to witness a food fight. They want to know how we’re going to put food on their table,” Harris said at one point.
Sanders defended his big-spending plans for a Medicare-for-All healthcare plan, saying it would reduce premiums for many but that some in the middle class might pay more.
“People who have health care under Medicare for all will have no premiums, no deductibles, no copayments, no out-of-pocket expenses. Yes, they will pay more in taxes, but less in healthcare for what they get,” Sanders said.
Buttigieg, who as been grappling with turmoil from the aftermath of the police shooting in South Bend earlier this month, acknowledged that his police force lacked diversity because he “couldn’t get it done.”
Buttigieg said the situation around the shooting was a “mess” because the officer did not have his body camera on.

Pretty much the ones I expected to be in the forefront.


I don't like that Biden is running, nor Sanders. I just feel that they had their chances and those chances passed them by.


I'm not sure about Warren. I'm not sure she'd be good as president. Either she should stay as Senator, or if she has to have a Government position, put her in anything to do with money maybe?.


I'm iffy on Harris and Booker as well.


I like Buttigieg but I wonder if he wouldn't make a better Sec. of State or VP.

I'll tell you exactly why I support Mayor Pete.

1. Domestic affairs. He's not promising free everything. He wants to leave the poor, suffering rich to fend for themselves, and require everybody who wants to play to have some skin in the game. Affordable college, not free college. Medicare for all who want it (the public option). A minimum wage of at least $15 per hour (which will move millions who currently pay no Federal income tax into brackets where they will pay it, taking away one of the tighty whitey righties' favorite whimpering points).

2. Foreign affairs. Russia, China, and the U.S. (and Britain, and Germany, and India, and all large countries) will work to increase their power and influence in the world. There's fair competition, there's shooting wars, and in between, there's a vast, shifting, shadowy terrain I call "conflict." Conflict is where we are with Russia and China. And I can think of no-one better placed to understand and conduct this conflict than a former Naval intelligence officer with a bone-deep understanding of the internet.

3. Income inequality. Tax the rich a little more, make sure the poor get paid a little more, and shift the balance of wealth more toward the middle.

4. Brains. He's smart. To be honest, very few politicians are first-rate intellects. Mayor Pete is the smartest guy in the room.

Trans woman need access to abortions too!

Castro: Yes, it would. I don’t believe only in reproductive freedom.
And, you know, what that means is that just because a woman — or let’s also not forget someone in the trans community, a trans female, is poor, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the right to exercise that right to choose. And so I absolutely would cover the right to have an abortion.

inclined t agree.....with all your points. I think we are just beginning to see Mayor Pete evolve.......and he has some fantastic potential. He comes with some governing experience.

Yes...his intellect shines through , and he is easy to listen to as he makes sense.....without being arrogant, or condescending or too aggressive. When he talks I WANT to hear what he has to say..

Plus........although not a defining component......he has likeability factor.

It's early days......so we shall see......but very interesting beginnings of election season.

No Cliffy, just a realist and watching a lot of lazy unproductive people across Canada voting only for drugs and free stuff.

Prisoners and Welfare bums shouldn't be allowed to vote. If your not contributing to society, you shouldn't have the same rights as those who pay taxes for these lowlifes to live.

But that's different. Farmers fit the stereotype of your typical paleoconservative. Now imagine if a hotel worker who got his hours cut because tougher immigration laws hurt tourism. That's just not a real job eh.

They are not even truly contenders yet. Just a bunch of wannabees hoping for access to the Democratic Party treasure chest. One of them may become the contender. Or not. ALways a chance of a winner coming up from behind.
