This was a great debate between two candidates, either one of whom will be a great President. Despite all odds given the exigencies of commercial media and a public that has learned to desire infotainment, they discuss the ideas we are all fighting to return to a better America. An FDR America with a once strong middle class which changed and continues to change the world we live in.
Please don’t miss it. I hope to watch it again and next time take notes.

Don’t listen to what the media headlines say (or miss). Make your own mind up. Both candidates did well and were asked important and substantial questions by Rachel Maddow and Chuck Todd of MSNBC.
From the blurb in the NYT headline link to their article:
In a caustic debate, Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders traded attacks and put their own spin on the word “progressive.”
– Jonathan Martin and Patrick Healy in the NYT
I don’t think it was caustic. It was substantial with both candidates respectful of one another and often agreeing with one another. Generally the rebutals were, “I agree with most of what ___ said but differ in this respect.”
