I watched the Democratic debate last night. Except for fewer candidates on the stage, it seemed like a rehash of previous debates. Again it was the defender of Medicare for All (Sanders) doing his thing against the defenders of ObamaCare. Same arguments except that Elizabeth Warren is no longer touting the Medicare for All line of Bernie.
Not much of substance on foreign troops in the Middle East. Now it seems that special ops forces are okay but not large numbers of combat troops. Sanders continues to castigate Biden for voting for the Iraq War. Biden muddled through as usual...no gaffs I suppose is remarkable.
Elizabeth Warren seemed feisty and was able to win points with her "women can be president" line. Amy Klobuchar was very noticeable with her Iowa farmers narrative. She did well.
Tom Steyer seemed like a back bencher. Buttigieg was articulate as usual, but otherwise didn't make a big mark with zingers and such that the media seem to love.
For me it was a rather ho hum debate having followed all the others. But for others watching perhaps for the first time it might have made impressions. Meanwhile Trump was holding yet another rally in Milwaukee at the same exact time if the debate. He wants to be in the spotlight. Yes Nancy Pelosi will put him there again as she sends the House impeachment proceedings to the Senate for trial. There was no mention of that in the debate nor the latest bomb shell Rudy revelations.
