Hillary Clinton easily won the debate. She was confident, knew the issues and didn’t let Sanders rattle her. The New York Times reported she had media training this week and it showed.
In contrast, Sanders seemed tired, rarely smiled and was best when he was angry. He’s still great at framing the key issues of the campaign. But his phrasing is so similar in every debate that he may soon be accused of having a Marco Rubio robot problem.
In the end, this debate isn’t likely to change many minds.
One more observation: It’s very interesting how President Obama looms over the Democratic race. Both Clinton and Sanders tried hard to embrace him. It’s an amazing contrast with how Republicans ran away from George W. Bush during the 2008 campaign.Save to Favorites
