Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) came to the defense of his rival, Hillary Clinton, during Tuesday's first Democratic debate over questions about her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state. "Let me say something that may not be great politics. But I think the secretary is right," he said, gesturing toward Clinton. "And that is that the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails."“Thank you. Thank you,” Clinton said in response, breaking into surprised laughter.Their exchange was met with some of the loudest applause of the night. “Enough with the emails,” Sanders continued. “Let’s talk about the real issues facing America.”Clinton has faced heavy criticism for conducting official business from a private server kept in her upstate New York home while she was a member of the Obama administration. She and her staff maintain that no classified information was received or sent from her private account.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who hails from a rural state where recreational gun ownership is widespread, was forced to defend his record on guns Tuesday night during the first Democratic presidential primary debate. In light of a recent mass shooting at Oregon's Umpqua Community College, debate moderator Anderson Cooper reminded Sanders that he voted against the 1993 Brady bill, which established mandatory background checks. The CNN anchor also pointed out that Sanders previously supported shielding gun manufacturers from legal responsibility for such massacres, even though the senator recently signaled he was open to revisiting that issue. In response, Sanders said he had a D-minus rating from the National Rifle Association and pointed out that he has long backed assault weapons bans and mental health counseling for those in need. But Cooper again pressed Sanders on whether he would shield gun manufacturers from litigation."Of course not," the self-described Democratic socialist replied. "That was a large and complicated bill. There were provisions in it that I think made sense, for example: did I think that a gun shop in the state of Vermont that sells legally a gun to somebody, and that somebody goes out and does something crazy, that that gun shop owner should be held responsible? I don't." "On the other hand, where you have manufacturers and where you have gun shops knowingly giving guns to criminals or aiding and abetting that, of course we should take action," he added.Cooper gave Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton a chance to respond to Sanders at that point. The former secretary of state, who also served in the Senate during the 2000s, seized the opportunity to contrast her votes on gun control legislation with those of her former colleague."It was pretty straightforward to me that he was going to give immunity to the only industry in America, everybody else has to be accountable, but not the gun manufacturers," she said. "We need to stand up and say enough of that. We're not going to let it continue.""As senator from a rural state, what I can tell Secretary Clinton is that all the shouting in the world is not going to do what I would hope all of us want," Sanders pushed back. "That is keep guns out of the hands of people who should not have those guns and end this horrible violence that we are seeing."He went on to argue that it would be necessary to get a consensus of Americans to support expanding instant background checks, tackling straw man gun purchases and addressing mental health issues in order to curb mass shootings.
9:41 PM: This debate is generally intelligent but also tepid - certainly in comparison to the Republican debates. There's little anger or driving divisions between the candidates - or to the extent there are such divisions, they're content to state them in parallel rather than forcing them into a headlong collision. I'm thinking here mainly of Jim Webb, who's coming from his own very distinct and idiosyncratic viewpoint but also content to make his points without really disagreeing, except implicitly, with the others on the stage.9:48 PM: "Sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails."9:50 PM: "Do you want to respond?" "No."
Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said Tuesday night at the Democratic debate that he would take the United States into war — as a "last resort." Sanders had said that "when he was a young man," he "strongly opposed" the policy that got the United States into the Vietnam War.He applied for the status of conscientious objector during the Vietnam War. Sanders' application was later denied, but he was too old at that point to be drafted to serve.Sanders said that he was not a "pacifist" and did support the war in Afghanistan and supports air strikes in Syria."Yes, I happen to believe from the bottom of my heart that war should be the last resort, that we have got to exercise diplomacy," Sanders said. "But yes, I am prepared to take this country into war if that is necessary."Watch Sanders' comment:This post has been updated.
Confronted again during Tuesday's Democratic debate about her vote authorizing the Iraq War, 2016 frontrunner Hillary Clinton shot back at criticisms that her foreign policy judgment couldn't be trusted by pointing out that she was ultimately chosen by President Obama to be secretary of state."Well, I recall very well being on a debate stage, I think, about 25 times with then-Sen. Obama debating this very issue. After the election he asked me to become Secretary of State," Clinton said. "He valued my judgment and I spent a lot of time with him in the Situation Room going over some very difficult issues." She went on to discuss the situation in Syria and the Obama administration's effort to build a coalition to fight the Islamic State, while also touching on the decision to take out Osama Bin Laden and impose sanctions on Iran."I think I have a lot of evidence what I would do as president," she said.

9:15 PM: I'm trying to get a handle on what I think of how Anderson Cooper is handling this debate. My immediate take is that he's stylistically being very, very aggressive. But the facts he hits people with, they seem to be able to dispatch pretty quickly - even when the candidates don't have great arguments on the facts. Like he's talking an aggressive game but he doesn't seem that well prepared. Thoughts?9:25 PM: Lincoln Chafee is so damn earnest and old line New Englandy and appealing. Not vote appealing - for me at least. But really appealing. And Hillary ... wow, that was an inspired response (Obama made her Secretary of State). Without being aggressive at all, in political terms, she just made Chafee's question go up in smoke.9:29 PM: Asking staff to research whether Rick Perry handed his glasses off to Anderson Cooper after he got out of the race.9:32 PM: Interesting that Webb signals opposition to Iran Deal.9:33 PM: I'm not as much of a China hawk as Jim Webb but he's very, very right about our myopia on the Middle East. There is more going in the world than the eastern Mediterranean and the Muslim Middle East.
Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton said during the first Democratic debate Tuesday night in Las Vegas that she was no socialist like her rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). Clinton jumped in after moderator Anderson Cooper asked Sanders about his proclaimed identification as a Democratic socialist and support for the social policies of countries like Denmark and Norway."When I think about capitalism, I think about all the small businesses that were started because we have all the opportunity and freedom in our country for people to do that and make a good living for themselves and their families," Clinton said. "And I don't think we should confuse what we have to do every so often in America, which is save capitalism from itself.""I think what Sen. Sanders is saying certainly makes sense in terms of the inequality we have," she added. "But we are not Denmark. I love Denmark, but we are the United States of America, and it's our job to rein in the excesses of capitalism so it doesn't run amok and it doesn't cause the kind of inequities we're seeing.""But we would be making a grave mistake to turn our backs on what built the greatest middle class in the history of the world," Clinton said.Sanders defended his support for universal healthcare and paid family leave, saying "every other country on earth" provides that sort of social safety net. He said he doesn't consider himself "part of the casino capitalist process by which so few people have so much and so many have so little."
Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton identified herself as "a progressive" during the first Democratic debate on Tuesday night in Las Vegas, but she qualified it by saying she's one who gets things done. CNN debate host Anderson Cooper asked Clinton whether she was a progressive or a moderate after the former secretary of state defended changing her stance on the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal.Cooper asked Clinton if she changed her political stance based on who she was talking to and mentioned a comment that she made last month in New Hampshire in which she said that she pleaded "guilty" to "being kind of moderate and center."Clinton said she didn't "take a back seat to anyone" when it came to progressive experience or commitment."I'm a progressive, but I'm a progressive who likes to get things done," Clinton said to applause. "And I know how to find common ground and I know how to stand my ground and I have proved that in every position that I've had."Watch the exchange:This post has been updated.
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson pulled within 1 point of Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump in a national Fox News poll released Tuesday. Trump had 24 percent support of GOP primary voters, followed by Carson at 23 percent.Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) had 10 percent.The poll of was conducted by phone interviews among 1,004 randomly chosen registered voters from Oct. 10-12. The poll was conducted for Fox under the direction of Anderson Robbins Research and Shaw & Company Research.
So here we are, at another CNN debate where the start and end times are kept secret. It's awesome.8:39 PM: Jeez, releasing the Don Lemon Kraken. Bold, scary move.8:41 PM: I think the national anthem was a shoot-out to people with non-traditional pitch.8:52 PM: So there are actually other people running for president on the Democratic side beside Hillary and Bernie.8:57 PM: Have to say I think O'Malley's opening was weakest so far. Chafee and Webb better and more resonant than I would have thought. Sanders suitably strong and burning.8:59 PM: Staff here says Fox did better by going straight to questions. Agree it makes better TV. But I think giving each candidate a chance to make their case at first is better on the merits.9:01 PM: Hillary is benefiting by how stupid Anderson Cooper's are. Good lord. He's like the perfect foil.9:04 PM: Can think of a lot of highly relevant differences between Denmark and the US other than the fact that Denmark is small. Cooper is perfect foil.9:07 PM: Cooper: Sure the issues. But what about labels?

A group of Republican lawmakers are reiterating their call for the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery to remove a bust of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and 25 House members sent a letter to the museum's director Kim Sajet Friday calling the display of the bust "an affront both to basic human decency and the very meaning of justice."The letter pointed to Sanger's support of eugenics, but also blasted her for founding Planned Parenthood, which has been in the crosshairs of congressional Republicans and nearly prompted them to shutdown the federal government rather the reauthorize its funding."Renewed concern and scrutiny of Ms. Sanger’s background stems from the recent ongoing revelations of Planned Parenthood’s potential activities in the trafficking of fetal tissue and baby body parts from abortions," the letter said. It goes on to take out of context a line from a 1939 letter written by Sanger to suggest Planned Parenthood was formed to "exterminate the Negro population.”Calls from conservatives that the gallery remove Sanger's likeness from its “Struggle for Justice” exhibit began in the summer, when NPR reported that the letter was "making the rounds" among lawmakers.At the time, a National Portrait Gallery spokeswoman defended the decision to include her in the exhibit, arguing the museum wasn't ignoring, "the less-than-admirable aspects of [Sanger's] career.""No one has to pass a moral test to be included in a museum," Bethany Bentley, the gallery's head of communications, told NPR. "Everyone has something in their background or beliefs, especially looking back at history. You can look at every president up to Zachary Taylor — they owned slaves."

Fox News host Shepard Smith took NBC to task on Tuesday with a sarcastic on-air rant about the network’s on-off relationship with GOP frontrunner Donald Trump. NBC announced Tuesday that Trump would host "Saturday Night Live" on Nov. 7. That prompted Smith to remind viewers of the network’s very public breakup with Trump after the Republican called Mexican immigrants “rapists” and drug runners during his presidential announcement speech in June.“NBC and everything Comcast did not want to be associated with Donald Trump, left all the money on the table, no more!” Smith said, picking up steam. “No more Trump on NBC! So what’s he doing? He’s going back to NBC! Good job! Nice job, NBC.”“You made a stand! You stood for your values! You did what you must! No more Trump! Except, more Trump,” a gesticulating Smith ranted.“Dumb dumb dumb," the Fox host said, mimicking NBC's famous three-note chime. "You did a great job! We’re all proud of you, NBC. We’ll be watching."Smith didn’t let the matter drop even after the story ended, and was heard half-mumbling and seen throwing his arms in the air as his show went to commercial: “Morals, values, leave the money on the table! Cancel it all, we’re through with him! Welcome back.”Smith’s own network has had a turbulent relationship with Trump. The ex-reality TV star made waves after locking horns with Fox host Megyn Kelly during the first Republican debate, prompting network boss Roger Ailes to intervene. But the peace has proved tenuous, with Trump alternately attacking and making appearances on Fox.Watch Smith's full monologue:
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Tuesday defended his rival, Sen. Ted Cruz, for saying the real estate mogul never be the party's nominee for President."He has to say that," Trump said during an interview on the Fox News show "Your World with Neil Cavuto." Trump was responding to comments Cruz made last week, the first time he turned on The Donald, when he said that he didn't think Trump would be the Republican nominee.The two candidates have taken on a chummy attitude toward each another. The candidates hosted a rally against the nuclear deal with Iran in D.C. And they're repeatedly come to each other's defense throughout their campaigns.Cruz has defended Trump against the other GOP candidates saying it was "just foolish" to attack him. Trump complimented Cruz's performance at the first debate.Trump again defended Cruz on Fox News."Well, what he really said in all fairness to him, they said, 'Do you think you will win?' He said, 'Yes.'" Now, what's he going to say, 'No, I think Trump is going to win?'" Trump said."But Ted Cruz said he thinks he's going to win," Trump continued. "So I think he has to say that. He's treated me very nicely with great respect."
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has brought on the wrath of New Hampshire Republicans and Democrats alike by suggesting that the Granite State, along with Iowa, does not deserve its early primary state status considering its lack of diversity.And he doesn't care if those remarks have early staters in a tizzy.Unlike so many politicians who pander to New Hampshire and Iowa, Reid -- who is not running for reelection to his Senate seat -- dug in and did not yield on his comments. Reid "apologized" Tuesday afternoon, telling reporters in Las Vegas, "New Hampshire is heavily populated and loaded with a lot of minorities, my apologies." The fuss started at a Monday evening panel sponsored by the Washington Post in Las Vegas, during which Reid said he was "terribly upset about how we chose our presidents.""You go to New Hampshire and there are no minorities there and nobody lives there and there are no minorities," Reid said, in remarks that were posted online by a GOP Super PAC. "You go to Iowa and there are a few people there but again that does not demonstrate what America is all about for different reasons."By Tuesday morning, New Hampshire's Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan -- whom Reid reportedly recruited to run for a Senate seat in 2016 (reports Reid's office denied) -- issued a statement called his comments "insulting" and demanded an apology."Our first-in-the-nation primary is a cherished responsibility for Granite Staters, a responsibility we hold because we invented it, and because we do it exceptionally well,” the statement said, according to WMUR Manchester.The state's Republican and Democratic senators both also condemned the remarks.“Harry Reid knows nothing about New Hampshire, our people, or the important role we play in vetting presidential candidates on both sides of the aisle,” Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) said, according to WMUR. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), meanwhile, told reporters Reid, "doesn’t understand the New Hampshire primary and why it is so important to the presidential selection process.""And clearly he hasn’t been to New Hampshire," she said, according to New Hampshire Public Radio.
Hillary Clinton supporter and former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D) was surprised Tuesday (to say the least) to hear of rapper T.I.'s comments that he didn't think a woman should be President."Whaaaat?!" Granholm said when an MSNBC host told her T.I.'s comment. "Are you kidding me?" T.I. (a.k.a Clifford Joseph Harris Jr.) said Saturday that he would not vote for Clinton because women, "make rash decisions emotionally." He later apologized for his comments and said they were insensitive and wrong.The MSNBC host asked Granholm if she thought people might not vote for Clinton because she's a woman."There is still sexism in this country," Granholm said. "I think there's no doubt about it. And there will be people who don't vote for her because she is a woman and shame on us as a nation that we have not progressed far enough so everybody can be treated as being competent regardless of their plumbing."Grahnholm is a senior advisor at Correct the Record, a pro-Clinton group founded by Clinton ally David Brock to defend her throughout her presidential bid."So truly that is a shame and I'm so sorry to hear that," Granholm said.Watch a clip of the exchange:
