The last Democratic debate showcased the kind of compulsive lying that makes Hillary Clinton unfit to be president. Clinton's role in Syria has been to help instigate and prolong the Syrian bloodbath, not to bring it to a close.
This is my message and prayer for Hillary Clinton tonight at the Democratic Debate: Hillary, please talk tonight about your record on women's rights and tell us more about how, when you are president, you will stand for women.
1. Sanders has supported gay rights since the early '80s. Clinton has not. 2. Sanders wants to end the prohibition of marijuana. Clinton does not. 3. Sanders wants to end the death penalty. Clinton does not.
Democrats are down to a head-to-head contest, which was on full display last night. Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders made their respective cases fairly well, and the jostling between them for position was notable.
If you've watched the Democratic debates (I feel your pain if you've suffered through the rancor of the Republican ones), you've probably noticed something else about Bernie Sanders: he's tough, but he's not a gutter fighter.
As the 2016 election season heats up, I'm excited to see how YouTube and social media are embraced by politicians and their supporters to participate in important conversations and reach younger audiences.
