Iowa takeaways: Sanders ups critique of Clinton policies.


This was the first time the field took the stage since Biden said he wouldn't run and two lesser-known candidates Jim Webb and Lincoln Chafee dropped out. That gives O'Malley a three-way race, which he has sought for months.
O'Malley made a generational appeal, saying Democrats must "cast aside the worn-out politics of the past." He also showed he could be a thorn in the sides of both Clinton and Sanders.

O'Malley said Democrats need to "stand like a rock" and not turn into a "weather vane" willing to shift with the winds, an obvious dig at Clinton's evolving. And he leaned into gun control, directly urging Sanders and Clinton to support a number of gun-safety measures, including the repealing a law that gives most gun manufacturers immunity in lawsuits. Sanders supported the measure in 2005, a stance that puts him at odds with many liberals.'


At least they MENTIONED him!
