If any of those socialist commie pinkos become President, we as a nation are screwed. Delaney was the most moderate, meaning he has no chance.

The news is saying Elizabeth Warren won, but she comes off as "a crazy cat lady" to me. Bernie Sanders, too old. Mayor Pete, too young.

The rest of them are just fillers.

Win or lose they are all introducing damaging notions into the psyche of the sheep people.
For as much as some realize their half-baked irrational vote buying schemes are unworkable, many more are shaking their bobble heads in mass agreement with them.

Delany did come off as the most "realistic" in his views. He's got no chance in hell. People wanna be sold a fairly tale and when you let that pesky reality in it doesn't work for a lot of people.

Warren always comes off like a chicken with her head cut off to me. She has this weird nervous energy, I don't know what it is. Sanders, I couldn't take listening to that NY accent if he were president, not to mention someone has to pay for all the freebies he and Chicken lady wanna give out.

Beto is a bonehead. Buttigieg comes off a bit too elitist to me. None of them have an impressive message really at the end of the day.

Who won, I don't know? The crazy new-age lady seemed to get a lot more applause from the audience than I remember the others getting.

I remember getting kind of bored. It went on too long, almost 3 hours. I'm going to slog through tonight's just because it feels like I have to. I probably won't vote Dem, but at least I need to be reaffirmed why I won't be voting that way.

Personalities took a back seat to policy perspectives. It was a draw between the moderates and the progressives. That means the moderates won the night and Biden is ever closer to the Oval Office.

That's an easy one. TRUMP won that debate. Just let the liberals talk. The more they open their mouths the more people know what a disaster they would be!!

You get a guy like Bernie that wants the single payer government only health care system. Having 150 million people give up their medical coverage for some bull**** poorly ran government system is going to be a hard sell. Just look at how the DMV is ran, how much better could health care be???

I hate to admit this, but you are right. A few (Delany, et al) tried to 'splain that last night, but it fell on mostly deaf ears.

I'll vote for whatever one wins (assuming Trump runs against them), and I'll know it's better than where we are heading, but the fact is that trying to convince people to vote for someone who wants to take their healthcare away is probably a non-starter.

The better approach, and somebody (I forget who, maybe Delaney?) said it, would be to make Medicare AVAILABLE to all. If you like what you have, you keep it, if Medicare is better, then get that. If what they are selling is truly a better solution, then the free market will eventually run the private plans out. But it should be done by economics, not politics.

I really can't stand Warren or Bernie, and I hope neither of them wins the primary. If they do, and if they run against Trump, they'll get my vote though.

Of the ones last night that were bearable to me:
Delany
Mayor Pete
Amy Whatshername from MN
And the guys from Montana and Colorado seemed sane (but without a chance)

Beto is, and always was an idiot, but he was multitudes better last night than the first debate.

Sadly, I think Delaney lost big last night. I hope Biden does well tonight. We'll see.
