Last Night's Dem Debate in NH


Last night’s Democratic presidential debate was the first to feature only former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders, and the absence of Gov. Martin O’Malley meant that we knew the two contenders would need to go right at each other. They did not disappoint and the principal winners of the evening were Chuck Todd and Rachel Maddow who let them go at it. For the first half hour of the evening, you barely knew the moderators were there and, throughout the evening, they spent far fewer words than previous moderators. Kudos to them.
