MSNBC Lead Story: Sanders Dominates Democratic Debate

http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/sanders-surges-debate-gets-core-democratic-divide

(Title of OP taken from headline. Actual title of article is different)

CHARLESTON, South Carolina – Bernie Sanders dominated Sunday night’s Democratic debate here, overpowering Hillary Clinton in a format she typically controls. With polls showing Clinton on the ropes in Iowa and New Hampshire, Sanders’ strong performance may have further imperiled Clinton’s once-inevitable path to her party’s presidential nomination.

Touting his surging poll numbers in the two key early states, Sanders was prepared and in command throughout the two-hour debate sponsored by NBC News and YouTube. In previous appearances, Clinton has easily dominated the stage. But turning in his strongest debate performance yet, Sanders drove the conversation – brushing aside her attacks as he doggedly returned to his core message of political revolution.

In the long arc of a primary campaign that began with warm relations between the two top candidates only to turn acrimonious over side issues, Sunday night was the first time voters saw the core divide between Clinton and Sanders.

They clashed over their approach to governing – revolution or evolution – in a way broadly hinted at since the day each got into the race but was somewhat obscured until now.

1. I agree that he dominated it

Not convinced he won it, though.

2. Whoa!!!

Did Hillary do something to piss of the MSM? Did they finally wake up after she lied to them and us all week long? Perhaps they are insulted that she seems to think they're stupid?

FEEL THE BERN!!!

3. I wasn't sure Bernie did quite as well tonight as the previous debates

Part of that was due to the moderation and audience that seemed to lean Clinton.

But he did seemed to have a lot of folks looking him up in google - so it's more exposure where I think he gains because folks don't know him and when they get to, he seems to get a lot of support.

No matter what, his healthcare proposal delivered just before the debate started is going to steal some thunder.

13. Of course it was a disaster for Bernie. The media has to have it's

horse race. Don't think for a minute that's not what's going on.

18. Right. And everyone cheated in online polls to make it look like 85% thought Bernie kicked ass.

 

She was thoroughly trounced, and the crows are coming home to roost with respect to all the lies. Bring every dirty trick in the book, we're ready.

7. Bernie looked very energetic all day. Guess Clinton camp attacking his health backfired on them.

 

I thought that this was Bernie's best debate performance. He was energized and pounded Hillary, who seemed more subdued until she screeched for Obama's mantle to be bestowed upon her. Her clingingness to Obama was a blatant attempt at pandering for the AA vote.

8. But, But over in the HC group they're all saying Hillary won.

How's a fella supposed to know who won?

Well, I for one saw nothing but "politics as usual" from Hillary. The real substance came from Bernie.
