With Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton In, Democrats Prepare for 6 Debates

With Bernie Sanders on the scene, this year’s Democrat presidential debates should be riveting. The candidates actually have different opinions.

I’m eager to see how the general American public will receive Bernie’s message – because mainstream media will not be able to ignore him during debate season.

The Democratic National Committee announced Tuesday that it will sanction six debates between candidates seeking the nomination. DNC Chair Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz says the debates will begin this fall, as part of an effort to ‘give Democratic voters multiple opportunities to size up the candidates for the nomination side-by-side.’ They will have plenty to debate, as there are big differences between the announced candidates on issues of war and peace, the Patriot Act, trade policy, and a whole lot more. And if Chafee, O’Malley, and Webb get in (along, potentially, with others), more distinctions on issues ranging from immigration to climate change to diplomacy will be highlighted.
