Democrats debate

NC_lv50wweb_700x394(NBC News) Hillary Clinton – the most experienced debater on stage – delivered a polished performance.

But it’s Bernie Sanders who’s getting a lot of attention this morning.

Online polls aren’t scientific, but if results from time and u-s news are any indication, Bernie Sanders was a big winner.

By saying early in the night that Americans are tired of the controversy surrounding Clinton’s use of a private email account, Sanders essentially neutralized the Democratic frontrunner’s biggest weakness during the two-hour long CNN debate.

Sanders’ move then allowed the former secretary of state to concentrate on her policy positions instead of having to defend her e-mail practices to millions of Americans.

Unencumbered, Clinton turned in a solid, gaffe-free performance, skillfully deflecting other rivals’ criticism of her record and forcefully hitting the Republican field on issues like Planned Parenthood and immigration.
