The first of two nights of poltical sparring…10 of the 20 candidates running for president presented, on live televion, why they should Democratic party’s pick to run against Donald Trump …While no one candidate clearly left the others in the dust, Elizabeth Warren stood out, kicking off the 2-hour debate with a call for fundamental economic change:6. SOUNDBITE 2 – Elizabeth Warren, Democratic 2020 presidential candidate (female, English, 20 sec): “When you’ve got a government, when you’ve got an economy that does great for those with money and isn’t doing great for everyone else, that is corruption pure and simple. We need to call it out . We need to attack is head on and we need to make structural change to our government, our economy and in our country.”There were few personal attacks, each candidated trumpetted their proposals and resumés. Catering to the hispanic vote and in a nod to the south florida venue, multiple candidates addressed the audiance in Spanish. And, the politicians views on immigration stood in stark contrast with the Trump administration’s: SOUNDBITE) (English) DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE CORY BOOKER, SAYING:

8. (SOUNDBITE) (English) DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BILL DE BLASIO, SAYING: “.. American citizens out there who feel you’re falling behind to feel the American dream is not working for you. The immigrants didn’t do that to you. The big corporations ddi that to you.
One of the other major topic of the night was healthcare. With more progressive De Blasio and Warren pushing for the end of private health insurance and, instead, establishing a federal healthcare system for all americans. The night was also marred by a minor technical sound glitch…one that president Donald Trump, who was watching, said was truly unprofessional, callign the debate boring and fake news. A sign the battle has begun, not just between democrats, but with the president as well
