Democratic Forum Gives O’Malley Spotlight
This wasn’t a debate. The former Maryland governor captured the attention of Democrats on Friday proposing a “war tax,” during MSNBC’s candidates forum, in which he, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton each appeared for solo question and answers sessions with host Rachel Maddow. Sanders downplayed personal differences with Clinton and showed a lighter touch, joking about being “grumpy” and a proud grandfather. Meanwhile, the frontrunner touted her support of gun control, denied she’d be more hawkish than Obama and said she’d like to learn Spanish, all while maintaining a strong lead in the polls.
