Debate One

Debate One - June 2019

I watched the first of the DNC official debates with a friendly group of people. At the end of the show an informal poll was taken: who won the debate? I wasn’t watching to see “who won the debate” I was watching to determine who I would vote for if the election were held immediately after. I went in open minded, wanting to learn about new candidates running. In the end, there was no question that the winner was Bernie Sanders, the only one who sounded completely honest.

One annoying aspect of this debate was when a candidate looked into the camera and addressed Trump. This seemed silly. We were not there to hear what a candidate had to say to Trump. We watch these debates to hear what the candidates have to say to us.
