What time is Democratic Debate tonight: Start time, TV schedule, Why Bill Clinton is looking so desperate?
There are no two opinions that the next Democratic debate is going to be very fierce. We have seen the trailer in the last debate when both the candidates including Hillary Clinton and her only Democratic challenger Senator Bernie Sanders tore into each other.
Now as Bernie Sanders seems to have become a bigger threat ever faced by the Clinton campaign, even her husband has jumped into the fray and tried to discredit Bernie Sanders days before the New Hampshire primary.
In Iowa, Bernie Sanders gave very tough time to Hillary Clinton despite trailing by several percentage points in opinion polls. Hillary and Bernie got almost identical support from caucuses goers in Iowa as both divided the votes fifty-fifty.
Now as Bernie Sanders is leading by double digits before New Hampshire primary, Bill Clinton has been deployed to take on Sanders. So will it be Bill Clinton vs Bernie Sanders or Sanders vs Hillary Clinton, the actual presidential candidate.
While addressing in Milford, New Hampshire the husband of the Presidential hopeful said, â€œWhen youâ€™re making a revolution, you canâ€™t be too careful with the factsâ€¦I want you to laugh, because when youâ€™re mad you canâ€™t think.â€ Without mentioning Sanders by name, Clinton recited a laundry list of double standards and lack of details in policy proposals he has identified in Sandersâ€™ campaign â€” and labeled â€œher opponent the champion of all things small and the enemy of all things big.â€
This was the toughest attack against Sanders by the former President. He tried to warn New Hampshire voters before the primary here saying, â€œThe New Hampshire I campaigned in really cared that you knew what you were doing, and how it was paid forâ€.
He went on to add that Bernie Sanders was neither good for United States or for the state. â€œIt is good for America, I donâ€™t think so. Is it good for New Hampshire? I donâ€™t think so. The New Hampshire I knew would not have voted for me if I had done thatâ€, said Ms Clintonâ€™s husband.
If that was not enough he went on to discuss the ugly â€œBernie Broâ€ phenomenon that the Sanders campaign has denounced â€” backers who harass female Clinton supporters online and accuse them of â€œvoting with their vaginaâ€ and call them â€œbitches.â€ Clinton called them â€œvicious trolling and attacks that are literally too profane … not to mention sexist.â€
In addition to the national live broadcast on PBS, the debate â€” produced in cooperation with Milwaukee Public Television and WUWM 89.7 FM â€” will be streamed online at pbs.org/newshour .
The debate will begin at 8:00 p.m.
