I have just finished live tweeting the Democrat debate which aired on CBS from Des Moines, Iowa and here are my observations.
Before I get to the candidates, I will say I thought John Dickerson did a competent job in moderating the debate. He and the panelists (who were Iowa print and broadcast journalists) challenged the candidates without making the show about them.
Bernie Sanders - He was very uncomfortable talking about foreign policy in the wake of the Paris attacks. While Hillary and O'Malley spent their entire opening statements on the Paris attacks, he spent about five seconds on it before moving to the more familiar terrain of millionaires, billionaires, Wall Street and the rigged economy. To give you an idea how out to sea he is on foreign policy he actually said climate change causes terrorism. Tell that to the people of Paris.
