Sanders, O’Malley Pounce on Clinton in Debate
Did she underestimate the threat? After Friday’s Paris attacks, host CBS shifted the focus of yesterday’s Democratic presidential forum to foreign policy, seemingly playing to the former Secretary of State’s strengths. But after Clinton said countering ISIS “cannot be America’s fight,” former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley scored points by insisting that the nation must “stand up to evil.” Even staunch liberal Sen. Bernie Sanders said Uncle Sam would “rid the world” of ISIS, making Clinton’s response sound uncharacteristically tame. But zingers aren’t votes, and a post-debate poll showed 62 percent of Democrats declaring Clinton the winner.
