1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Bernie Sanders has his “oops” moment

From the start of Thursday night’s debate, the NBC moderators seemed intent on letting Bernie Sanders have a strong night. They started by feeding him a softball question, while hitting Joe Biden hard with gotcha questions. This should have been easy for Bernie. But then Rachel Maddow took over moderator duties for the second half of the night, and Bernie had his “oops” moment.



We all remember when Rick Perry said he wanted to get rid of five government agencies, than failed to name them all, before simply saying “oops.” Tonight, Bernie Sanders had a moment that wasn’t quite as much of a soundbite, but was nonetheless a terrible look for him. Maddow hit him with a question that was not designed to be an easy one.




Six years ago, Bernie gave an interview and said that gun control should be a state issue. Maddow quoted Bernie on this, and asked him to respond. Bernie insisted that this was a mischaracterization of his position. Maddow responded by pointing out that she’d just quoted his own words to him. From there, Bernie seemed to have no idea what to say. Gun control has always been a tricky issue for him because he’s from pro-gun Vermont, but he managed to trip over the topic in a manner that even Maddow seemed stunned by.


This moment won’t knock Bernie Sanders out of the race by any means. But he was already polling fairly poorly for someone who entered the race with so much built-in national name recognition left over from 2016. He’s been in a subtle slide in the polls for months, and this bizarre debate moment will likely end up causing that trend to continue. There are plenty more debates coming up, of course.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: So much for the Joe Biden – Kamala Harris ticket

Joe Biden came into tonight’s debate as the clear frontrunner in the polls. Kamala Harris came into tonight’s debate primed for a breakout. It led to a whole lot of renewed talk about a Biden-Harris ticket, or a Harris-Biden ticket, on social media. This kind of speculation is always premature this early on – but then the debate happened, and let’s just say that the odds of such a ticket just took a tumble.



Joe Biden spent the first half of the debate successfully playing defense against gotcha questions from the moderators, while Kamala Harris kept hitting home runs. The Biden-Harris or Harris-Biden ticket looked stronger than ever. But then the topic of race came up, and Harris forcibly nudged her way into the conversation so she could attack Biden on race. In turn, Biden responded passionately and angrily. Suffice it to say that they did not end up seeing eye to eye.




Biden didn’t win the debate, but he’s still the frontrunner. Harris is widely being named the winner of the debate by the pundits, and we’ll see if that translates to a big boost in the polls. But after tonight, it’s going to be a whole lot harder for the two of them to appear on a ticket together. In fact, the two of them looked like they had no interest in running together.


That said, the 2008 debates between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama got far uglier than this, and when Obama became President, he promptly picked Hillary to be his Secretary of State. These kinds of primary squabbles can be overcome in the end. But for now, the prospect of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris appearing on a ticket together just went off a cliff.
