The second Democratic debate happens tonight at 8PM ET in Detroit, MI, on CNN. Since so many qualified for the second round, the Democratic Party spread the debate across two days with ten candidates each night.

Tonight we will see Sanders and Warren.

Foreign Policy

Can someone tell Elizabeth Warren about WWII?

Racism

Apparently government enforced segregation still exists. And environmental racism!

Flint Finally Comes Up

It took 95 minutes for the moderators to bring up the Flint, MI, water crisis, even though the debate is in Detroit. Williamson had the most emotional answer to the shock of no one.

Climate Crisis

Delaney spelled out his plan:

Defeat Trump?

OK, I have to admit this is an odd question. CNN asked the candidates if the Sanders is too extreme to beat Trump. This isn’t a fair question even though I agree he is. Tim Ryan reminded everyone that Hillary also led in polls when Sanders boasted about his standings in the polls.

It’s basically a way to determine which candidate is far-left and moderates.

Guns

That evil NRA. No one could honestly give a straight answer because we all know what it comes down to: repealing the 2nd Amendment.

Immigration

It’s all about open borders…even though they talked about laws and securing our borders. Anyone else the

Health Care

Jake Tapper began the debate with health care. Sanders went off the rails with his Medicare for All while Delaney shot him down insisting that it’s suicide if the Democrats go with this way.

Previous Reporting

These candidates will take the stage tonight:

  • Author Marianne Williamson
  • Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH)
  • Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)
  • South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)
  • Former Rep. Robert O’Rourke
  • Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper
  • Former Rep. John Delaney (D-MD)
  • Montana Gov. Steve Bullock

NPR had the same thought I did about Sanders and Warren. Will there be any distinctions drawn between the two? Something tells me they will try to out-socialism the other one with Sanders once again yelling at clouds.

If I recall correctly the candidates did not bring up former Special Counsel Robert Mueller in the last debate. That may change since he testified in front of two congressional committees last week.

Sanders, Hickenlooper, Warren, O’Rourke, Ryan, and Klobuchar support an impeachment inquiry on President Donald Trump. Buttigieg said he favors “beginning impeachment proceedings, but cautioned they’d likely hit a roadblock in the Republican Senate.”

I hope the debate does not turn into chaos like the first two nights on NBC.
