Five reasons Bernie Sanders lost last nightís Democratic debate

Hillary Clinton is building her delegate lead, and Bernie Sanders is getting angry.

The Vermont senator needed a good night in Michigan to change the dynamic of a nominating contest that has been slipping away from him. He didnít get it.

Instead, in the seventh Democratic debate, Sanders found himself on the defensive for the first time ever over his vote against the auto bailout. He poorly handled delicate racial and gender dynamics. He seemed angry, and he came across as someone who is running to make a point Ė not to win. He even managed to offend the mentally ill.

While many pundits are calling the CNN debate a draw, after reading the clips and monitoring cable chatter this morning, we are convinced it was a clear loss. Here are five main reasons why:..............lots more.............

2. Why is this still an issue a year later?

"When you are white, you donít know what itís like to be living in a ghetto, you donít know what itís like to be poor, you donít know what itís like to be hassled when you are walking down a street or dragged out of a car," Sanders said.

This, of course, suggests that there are not poor whites and non-poor African Americans. It shows the degree to which the democratic socialist views everything through a class-based lens."

3. Thanks for the link, Rose!



I liked this part especially.

Clinton is a deft tactician, and her performance showed that sheís been to a few rodeos. Sanders, who said he protected ďhard-workingĒ Americans from bailing out ďthe crooks of Wall Street,Ē has never been quick on his feet.

Reporters abhor repetition, and this (Bernie's anti-auto bailout vote) was new information after a series of debates that have included a lot of the same back-and-forth. It also played to a parochial concern ahead of Michiganís Tuesday primary. And it happened early enough during the two-hour debate that it could make all the stories reporters needed to file before their final print deadlines.

I know Bernie needs to stand his ground when being interrupted, but his tone made my stomach turn a bit.
