No more nice-nice between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders

Wow. Last night's Democratic debate on CNN between Hillary and Bernie sure got real ugly real fast. My head is still throbbing. My ears are still cringing. I'm not sure if either of them won the night, but they gave everybody a lot to talk about today. Somebody on Morning Joe this morning said it reminded him of an episode from the Bickersons. I don't think I learned anything new during the debate. They answered the moderators' questions pretty much the same as they did the last time and the time before that. They attacked each other on the same issues, attacked each other on different versions of the same issues, and talked over each other way too often, something I really dislike. The only difference I did notice was that they were much louder, much ruder, much nastier and made it very obvious that any love that once existed between them is gone, at least for now. The one thing they did do was catch up to the Republicans in verbal abuse and vitriol. Image: Pixabay

They are getting itchy as they are fighting for a big reward here.

That is true. I think everyone, including Hillary, is very surprised at how well Bernie is doing and how close things are right now.

@LindaCPearson I have to agree to a point. The one difference I noticed is Bernie told Hillary more times she did not respond to the question. Something about "pots calling the kettle black"......is all I can think. I heard "Wall Street" so many times I think he had stock in the movie residuals. I only know that Bernie needs to realize all the freebies are going to cost someone...and if he thinks it is "Wall Street" or the 1%...just remember this today..on tax day.

While their bickering created good morning TV commentary, what did they really say? Nothing but trading words and bashing Wall Street. Were were any plans to revive the economy and create jobs? How to handle terrorism? Better treatment of our veterans? All these politicians offer are no plans or ideas to solve issues. Just pandering to their bases.

Hi Linda. It is getting down to the wire, and Mr. and Ms. Nice has left the building. Well, not saying that they are necessarily mean to each other. But, it is coming down to one of the situations in which someone you know and respect start to throw some things from the past back in your face in an effort for you to feel it burn. Again.

I only saw a couple minutes of it. And I'm glad you used his picture instead of hers.

Not sure what this means, but frankly I find him quite annoying.

The media is good at their job if you want entertainment now and I think they both are getting tired. Put this crap down to three months. You could make Jesus himself look like Satan with this never ending environment of seeing the worse of everyone day in and day out. Which is again why the media is so great at their job. We do not bring the best out of people anymore, but the worse.

Yes I thought it had gotten much ruder and louder for sure. Not at all becoming in either one of them.
