I don't think Senator Webb is a big AC fan LOL... those exchanges were funny. What a big night for dems! What a good passionate, spirited debate about the real issues. I think Sanders really shined to his based. Not sure about Presidential or general election though. Hilary really had a big night and was poised, passionate, witty and strong. O'Malley had a few good moments too... I AC did a pretty good job his pushed back a little but most had a great opportunity to say what they wanted to say. It was so much better to see a debate with less people in it and more about real American issues. The dems in this debate were discussing on how to move the country forward in contrast to the GOP. Not that any party has all of the answers. The dems are certainly weak on some issues that GOP is stronger to me as an independent... but when it comes to equality dems have that message down pack and most Americans agree with them. I look forward to next debate but good start. I think Sanders if any issues were he needs improvement on is on gun control. He got hammered by that last night. Hilary of course has flip flopped a lot but she did an ok job explaining her changes a lot better than Mitt Romeney last cycle. Sanders and Hilary should continue to soar.

Anderson really did an excellent job moderating the debate last night. He was tough but fair, and made sure that the candidates provided actual answers to his questions. His performance has been widely praised, and rightfully so. He showed how exciting, substantive and revealing a political debate can be when a real journalist is moderating. Hopefully, future debates will follow the example he set.

HUFFPOST IS REPORTING THAT ANDERSON DID WELL AS MODERATOR AND ASKED THE TOUGH QUESTIONS THAT NEEDED
TO BE ASKED, AND THAT HE DID HIS HOMEWORK.
WHILE I AGREE HE WAS WELL PREPARED ABOUT THE BACKGROUNDS OF EVERY CANDIDATE AND HELD THEM ACCOUNTABLE TO ANSWERING WHAT HE ASKED, WAS HE THAT "TOUGH" WITH THE REPUBLICANS WHEN HE MODERATED
THE REPUBLICAN DEBATES IN 08?
IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY HE WAS RELATIVELY SOFT SPOKEN AND VERY RESPECTFUL, AS HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN.
BUT IN THIS DEBATE HE SPOKE AT A FAST CLIP AND SEEMED TO HAMMER AWAY AT HILLARY, THOUGH SHE TOOK
IT IN STRIDE.
WOULD LIKE TO SEE HIM AS MODERATOR IN THE NEXT REPUBLICAN DEBATE. LET'S SEE JUST HOW "MODERATE"HIS
TONE OF QUESTIONING IS WITH FRONT RUNNER TRUMP. AND LET US NOT FORGET AC'S PAL, JOHN MCCAIN. HE NEVER GRILLED MCCAIN THE WAY HE GRILLED HILLARY LAST NIGHT.
