    This debate might get ugly tonight, depending on how much Clinton and Sanders rip into each other over the DNC data breach.

    It's doing this on YouTube as well. And youtube is a guy STREAMING the stream, so it's not just me.

    This is basically unwatchable.

    Let's be honest, O'Malley knows he's not getting on the ticket. That spot's almost certainly reserved for Julian Castro. My bet is that he's angling for the Cabinet.

    Ehhhh, Edwards was a similar scenario in 2004: guy with no real hope who stayed in, and he eventually got on the Kerry ticket.

    But the bottom line is that he's not here to win the primary and just wants to get his name out.

    yeah, O'Malley has done a good job of distinguishing himself in the debates, but he need to be able to continue that off stage, and in the campaign at least he hasn't really done anything of note. perhaps when the primary is over that will change, but if he wants to turn his run into something bigger he needs to do more outside of the debates to ensure that people don't forget about him.

    In New Hampshire, which is kind of true.

    O'Malley starts by saying the wrong thing which is that the first job is to protect the American people, which it is not. It is to protect the Constitution.

    Self-righteousness is incompatible with coalition building.

    yeah, just saw the pic of Hillary and a text quote that i was sure was from Cruz. i'm guessing the sound would have added context. running better now, though a bit blurry like the other feeds have been.

    Seems like a decent response from Sanders. No need to get accusatory towards Clinton, but the accusations to the DNC seemed justified.

    Sanders apologized, Hillary's reaction is that it's resolved and should move on.

    i do love how O'Malley has come out against Trump in every debate, both directly and (somewhat)subtly. Bernie following up with some broader attacks on billionaires and their involvement in politics.
