When compared to the Republican Presidential debates, last night’s Democratic Presidential debate was superb, and did the nation proud!
All three candidates—Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Martin O’Malley—were exceptional in their performance.
All three were civil, intelligent, comprehensive, and compassionate in their domestic and social agenda.
All three were balanced, reasonable, knowledgeable and measured in their statements on foreign policy issues.
Any of the three would be an outstanding President in the Oval Office.
Having said that, it seems to me that Bernie Sanders, already ahead in many public opinion polls in Iowa and New Hampshire, probably gained the most by his performance last night.
Hillary Clinton, however, held her own, and Martin O’Malley, who in any other year would be a likely front runner, looked good, but still, it is clear that his quest for the Presidency is a lost cause for 2016.
