D-Bait III!

The ABC News Democratic debate.

The ABC Democratic debate is on tonight. In the small town of Goffstown, New Hampshire, the Democrats come to a crowded auditorium to watch three candidates duke it out over the issues facing America.

  • Hillary Clinton: Former First Lady of the United States, former U.S. Senator from New York, former Secretary of State under President Barack Obama, author, and lawyer.
  • Bernie Sanders: Current U.S. Senator from Vermont, former U.S. Representative, former mayor of Burlington, activist, author, and lawyer.
  • Martin O'Malley: Former governor of Maryland and former mayor of Baltimore, former city councilman and lawyer.

The debate will be moderated by ABC News Tonight host David Muir and chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz. The Saint Anselm College is the sponsoring host for the debates.

The issues discussed tonight focused on terrorism, gun control, the economy, the Obama legacy, climate change, foreign policy and tuition for college students.

Many issues discussed may include: #BlackLivesMatter, Planned Parenthood, heroin, infrastructure. and Wall Street regulations.

And like with the Republican debate, I won't give you a play-by-play on what was said.

I know that the junk food media will already bias it for Hillary Clinton. The ratings will be between 6.6 million to 10 million viewers. The Republicans are trolling the candidates. The conservative agitators won't have an opportunity to go after the most controversial statements. They're on vacation and they'll return shortly after the New Year.

Republicans like Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Ted Cruz will nitpick every statement from Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. They will not worry about Martin O'Malley. He's scoring extremely low.

The field is weak. The Democrats have a feud within it's ranks. They believe that the chairwoman is pushing for Hillary Clinton to win. It may cause a brokered party convention. The Republicans have a worst situation. There's still 14 candidates and no clear front runner other than Donald Trump. Trump's persona may cause the Republican infighting. and a brokered party convention
I didn't get a chance to hear the first part of the debate. For two reasons. I was busy. I didn't really have much care for it. It's not like the Republican debate. The Democrats aren't wack-a-doodles.

But their chairwoman is. Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) has placed the debate on poor viewership nights. The Friday and Saturday night debates were expected to be low rated.

Bernie Sanders, Martin O'Malley and the former contenders complained that the debates were biased to Hillary Clinton.

Again, I kind of wish Barack Obama would run for a third term. If it wasn't for the 22nd Amendment limiting terms for the president, Obama would slaughter every candidate running.

If I had to choose between a Republican and a Democrat running for president.

I would put my chips on Marco Rubio and Bernie Sanders.

But if all things are predicted as I count my coins, I think Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Two polarizing figures who's getting heavy media coverage. Candidates who earn more than the average working man or woman. Candidates who say shit to win shit.

I am not inspired by any Democrat or Republican running for president. Nonetheless, I rather have a rational leader than a bombastic leader. So if you make the decision on who can be the right candidate, that's left up to the voters.

On this debate, who won. Take our poll.
