Democratic debate winners and losers: Elizabeth Warren triumphs while O'Rourke flound - 06-27-2019, 05:18 AM

Apparently Warren won the debate last night. I was fast asleep. I sort of
figured she would. Did anyone watch it and think any differently? I'm sure Warrens
performance will be on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmF2Wmg3W3M

The Democrat Party 2020 presidential election debate in Miami was the major chance for the many of the candidates involved to pitch themselves to a national audience.

The 10 candidates on the stage, with another 10 debating tomorrow, had around 10 minutes maximum to make sure they stood out. Some triumphed, some failed.

The candidates were: Cory Booker, Beto O'Rourke, Elizabeth Warren, Julián Castro, Amy Klobuchar, Tulsi Gabbard, Tim Ryan, John Delaney, Bill de Blasio, and Jay Inslee.

Ms Warren is the frontrunner of those names when it comes to the national polls, with Mr Booker and Mr O'Rourke the other candidates with solid name recognition.

Here are our winners and losers from the two hours of questions, impassioned statements and squabbles.

Winners
Elizabeth Warren

The senator from Massachusetts was the person to beat in the debate and would have expected the other candidates to come after her. Getting through the two hours without a major slip or spat would have been enough.

But Ms Warren did more than that. She has set herself up as the candidate with plans, putting out more policy plans than almost anyone else among the more than 20 Democrat candidates. That showed in a strong first hour that involved questions on her favourite topics - healthcare and the economy.

She has called for "structural change" in many departments and that message was relayed strongly. Other candidates will be bemoan her airtime, the third most among the candidates, and the fact she was given the last word.

A quieter second half to the debate might be picked up by some - but giving other candidates a chance to fight with each other for the limelight left her looking quite stately.

Cory Booker

The New Jersey senator spoke for the longest amount of time, 10 minutes and 55 seconds, but he used it effectively.

He was involved in most of the topics and had one standout moment talking about violence against the LGBT+ community and particularly.

"We do not talk enough about transgender Americans — especially African-American trans Americans," he said to a cheer from the audience.

Mr Booker had decent name recognition before the debate and will not have done his standing any harm.

Julian Castro

The former San Antonio mayor had been running under the radar - but had a very strong night.

He managed to carve out more than nine minutes of speaking time and made sure he took advantage of an emphasis on immigration for a large section of the debate.

Gained a cheer for his quote that the the photograph of the bodies of Oscar Alberto Martínez and his 23-month-old daughter, Angie Valeria who drowned crossing the Rio Grande should "p*** us all off".

Painted President Donald Trump as cruel over his border policies in the wake of that and made former Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke look slightly foolish when the pair clashed over what to do over immigration at the southern border.

Amy Klobuchar

The centrist candidate sounded level-headed throughout the debate, whether she landed enough big hits is open to question - but she got a couple of quips in about Mr Trump's unsuitability for office.

She also scored a big point in taking Washington Governor Jay Inslee to task in trying to claim credit over legislating to protect a woman's right to choice an abortion in his state. Ms Klobuchar said that there were "three women on the stage" who had fought hard to protect those rights.

Lower-polling candidates

Tim Ryan and John Delaney got in a decent amount of airtime each - around seven minutes - and scored some decent soundbites on immigration and climate policy.

Mr Inslee's major issue is global warming and much of his four minutes of talking was taken up with discussion of it. He will take that as a win.

Losers
Beto O'Rourke

The former Texas congressman, who shot to national attention during his close-but-no-cigar run for the Senate in 2018 in a deeply Republican state, had a bad night.

He has been able to raise a lot of money from donations, but was out of his depth on policy here and sounded forced.

Speaking Spanish was a good way to reach out to the Latino vote - but being beaten on immigration issues by Mr Castro was not.

He needs to start looking like a well-rounded candidate to lift his sagging poll numbers. But he did not do that here.

Bill De Blasio

The New York mayor wanted to show off his policies on wages and gun control to a national audience. What he actually did was repeatedly talk over others and failed to make much of an impact.

Will have done his likeability with voters some harm.

Tulsi Gabbard

Ms Gabbard was the most searched candidate on Google during the debate, and that is likely what she would want. Pushed her military credentials when speaking about foreign policy which should win some fans,

However, pivoting questions to her military record when it did not call for it, such as when being asked about the gender pay gap will have left a sour taste.

The debate format

It was always going to be difficult for candidates to make inroads in a format that had 10 people on stage on each of two nights.

Policy was generally front and centre, which will have pleased party leadership, but in reality we will not get a true idea of candidates and their ideals for another few months.

First Democrat Debate: Vapid and Predictable


The debate was an exercise in bland posturing with practically no substance.

By: Graham J Noble June 27, 2019



Perhaps expectations for the first Democratic Party primary debate were too high. That may have been entirely natural among those who are politically aware as well as among those who pontificate about politics for a living. Many of these people hoped for at least a couple of bold soundbites, a clear policy statement or two, or a heated exchange. The June 26 event in Florida – part one of a two-part debate – was almost entirely devoid of any of those things.

The first quarter of the two-hour debate was focused on healthcare. There was little diversity of opinion and no detailed policy proposal, though the debate moderators were fairly rigid on limiting each candidate’s time and so none of the 2020 hopefuls could have really been expected to lay out specific legislative goals. That being said, the debate did absolutely nothing to more fully inform the American people about any candidate’s position.
Platitudes Over Policy

Everyone on the stage expressed the usual platitudes about providing universal access to healthcare. In true Democratic Party fashion, all ten candidates based their ideas on the assumption that government alone can provide the most efficient and cost-effective healthcare system the United States will ever have. This, of course, is entirely at odds with the history of human civilization, which teaches us that government is incapable of providing efficient, cost-effective services.

Interestingly, when the ten contenders were asked to raise their hands if they would abolish private health insurance, only New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren did so.

Former Maryland Representative John Delaney was perhaps the most rational person on the stage and also the most ignored – with the exception of Amy Klobuchar (D-MN). On the subject of healthcare reform, Delaney suggested the best way forward was to “keep what’s working and fix what’s broken.” Though it will not be well-received by most Democratic politicians or their media lapdogs, Delaney may have uttered the most sensible line of the night when he later said his party should offer “Real solutions, not impossible promises.”

The Favored Ones

Warren, who was literally center stage, was given the most time to speak during that first section of the debate. Indeed, there was a definite bias – throughout the event – toward Warren, former Texas congressman Robert O’Rourke, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, and Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro. The other candidates had to fight for the opportunity to speak, on many occasions.

Other issues covered included immigration, Iran, gun control, and climate change. No specific policies were offered up by any of the candidates. Gun control was obviously a subject that made all of them uncomfortable. Clearly, not one of these Democrats had the courage to go on the record, in front of a national audience, with their plans for firearm confiscation. To their credit, though, none of them professed support for the Second Amendment, which so many Democrats do – disingenuously – when pressed on the issue of gun rights.

All but one of the contenders agreed that the United States should sign on, once again, to the Iran nuclear deal. Sen. Booker declined but then, ironically, channeled President Donald Trump by asserting that a better deal should be negotiated.

The Also-Rans

All in all – for almost all ten candidates – it was, at best, a cautious performance and, at worst, a cowardly one. Castro made the biggest impact as one of the lesser-known 2020 contenders. Cory Booker perhaps comes out of the event with a slight boost, and Warren, while not especially captivating, certainly retained her position as one of the front-runners.
beto-o’rourke-says-white-americans-don’t-know-the-full-story-of-slavery,-continues-to-support-reparations

Robert O’Rourke continued to flail and did nothing, on the stage, to dispel the feeling that he is entirely out of his depth in a presidential race. He was scolded by Castro for his immigration ideas and falsely assumed that his command of the Spanish language would, perhaps, earn him some street cred, but that did not appear to work either.

Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard had a moment to shine when she schooled Washington Governor Jay Inslee on the futility of the Afghan war but was not one of the chosen few who were allowed to hog the limelight. Inslee himself has a very limited future in this race.

Ohio Representative Tim Ryan made little impact, though he was one of only two candidates who acknowledged that his party has lost its way – becoming disconnected from blue-collar America and evolving into the party of the elites. The other candidate who made the same assertion was de Blasio, who may have an equally limited lifespan in the 2020 race.

The debate may have had some effect on how Democratic voters view the respective candidates but probably did nothing to excite the base: Inslee, Klobuchar (who was the most lackluster figure of the night), Delaney, and Ryan were unable to capture that one, big moment they each needed to give their campaigns some steam. De Blasio was the most aggressive but continues to be one of the least likable people in America. Castro, Warren and, perhaps, Booker were the winners of the night.

Gabbard and de Blasio may have done enough to keep their hopes alive a little longer and, if Democratic voters are truly interested in moderation and something more rational, then Delaney may survive for a while longer. The other four are probably as good as done.

In the final analysis, this debate was an exercise in bland posturing with practically no substance. Trump, who tweeted “BORING!” during the debate, has little to worry about if this is the best the Democrats have to offer for 2020.
