Ahhhh!!! Another debate!! This time it’s the democrats. I hear there’s more than two candidates, but that could just be a rumor. I’m not sure.
So far, the general consensus is that Hillary won this debate. I’m kinda fuzzy on how you ‘keep score’ in a debate in order to determine a ‘winner’, but obviously there is some formula out there.
I have to agree with this, though. I think Hillary looked stronger. She was calm. She was in command. And she went in armed with facts. And she was rocking yellow. How fun is that??
As to be expected, Clinton stood out as the master on foreign policy, while Sanders appeared out of his league. This came as a surprise to no one.
Overall, both candidates share many common platforms. The main difference is on how each plans to implement their policies. And this is where and why I think Hillary will ultimately win the nomination.
Bernie just keeps skirting around how he plans on making all these sweeping progressive changes. His main comeback when approached with this is “It has to work. Anything less would be unworthy of America.”
That’s like being asked “How ya gonna find a cure to that nasty old cancer, Bern???” And Sanders replies “Well, we have to find one. Anything thing less would be unworthy of America.”
Doesn’t say how he’s going to do it. Doesn’t say when. Doesn’t say who’s going to foot the bill. How’s that going to work, Bernie?? And no, “It has to. Anything less would be unworthy of America.” is not an acceptable answer.
And if it was this simple don’t cha think someone would of tried it in some previous terms in office?? Just throwing that out there.
Clinton blew a golden opportunity on this one. She should of went right for the jugular and asked the question millions of Americans are dying to ask. And that is “How are we going to implement all these changes you propose, let alone pay for them??”
I may not be that fond of Hillary. I personally don’t believe that should have any bearing on whom I vote for. All I’m concerned about is who is going to realistically make the best presidential nominee. And at least she’s not promising unicorns and rainbows.
And for this, I’m grateful. Because I learned a long time ago, sad as it may be, Santa Clause doesn’t exist. k
