CNN News Las Vegas Democratic Debate Winner at the University of Nevada
Made popular 2017 days ago in
With Sin City as a backdrop, seven Democratic presidential hopefuls went head-to-head on the issues Thursday night, with the biggest pressure likely on front-runner Sen. Hillary Clinton.
She faced the first question about stumbling in the last debate and responded first by joking that her pant suit was "made out of asbestos."
Clinton then sparred right away with Sen. Barack Obama - her closest rival - on the issue of health care.
The candidates are debating at the Thomas and Mack Center on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
The debate, hosted by CNN and the Nevada Democratic Party, is the first showdown between Democrats since Clinton's stumble at a debate in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
That's where the senator from New York was accused of inconsistency on her answer to a question about driver's licenses for illegal immigrants. Criticism of Clinton's response was discussed in the media for days afterward.
Clinton has to do better this time, CNN senior political analyst Bill Schneider said Thursday.
"She has to reassure Democrats that she speaks from conviction, that she's being honest with the people, that she doesn't talk like a typical politician - which is what she sounded like at the last Democratic debate and took a lot of heat for that," Schneider said.
Gloria Borger, CNN's other senior political analyst, agreed: "Clinton's on the hot seat. She has to get rid of the notion that she can't answer a question directly or that as a front-runner she is just playing out the

I'm surprised that she's not doing so well in this poll. I thought she came out swinging, and did not make any mistakes.

Joe Biden has more working knowledge of government than any of the other candidates. He can give an answer drawing on his vast experience,
....During the debate the other candidates were all able to say....' as Joe said '... or ' I agree with Joe '.
Unfortunately, every time Bidens time came to an end, Blitzer cut him off, while allowing others to ramble on to make their point. If you could hear more from him, you would see he is the best candidate for President. Go to www.joebiden.com to see more.
President Biden would bring both Republicans and Democrats into the cabinet , he would have advisors from each party, and these would be people he has already worked with for years.
Biden would have the people of the U.S. supporting him financially, rather than the big money interests supporting Clinton and Obama.
Like many other women, I would like to see a woman as President, but I don't think that 8 years in the White House as wife of the President qualifies as vast experience. Clintons last 6 years as Senator have all been preparation to run for President. Just what is her vast experience?
Biden has spent 35 years working with both parties to get things done. I think he is the man we need to get the country united again
