So in Iowa, reporters try to get Bernie Sanders to talk crap about Hillary and other politicians. He doesn't do that. He refuses to take easy jabs at his opponents and just wants to discuss the issues. Seriously, a class act.



So far, the only debates we've seen are the GOP ones but it's almost been exclusively the candidates mudslinging and the novelty act of Trump tricking everybody into thinking that crass and foul rudeness is a retaliation of the "PC agenda". It's all been a long Jerry Springer episode, minus the chair throwing.

It's time some more candidates step up and say "No, I'm not going to take free swipes at my opponent because this isn't a reality show".

Anyway, enjoy the video as it really shows you just how classy a candidate can actually be.

Kudos to him for sticking with the issues.

minus the chair throwing. 

Well that, and the women showing their boobs for strings of beads.

Very impressed by the video, and the way he handles himself.

I would venture to say, Ol' Bernie stands a better chance of
facing off with whoever the GOP finally decides on among
this ridiculous crowd they have now.

Definitely outclasses Hillary.

Gonna be a fun election season.

Thanks for the video.

I hear what you are saying.

Candidates within the same party should not
undermine the other candidates or say
bad things about them, as the other
candidates may become THE candidate,
and backbiting only hurts ones party.

However, that said,
candidates do have an obligation to
point out the shortcomings in candidates
of the other party.

The American people
must know the shortcomings of candidates
before the election occurs.

The opposition party has the duty to dig
dirt, to out shortcomings, and make
the populace aware of what the other
party's candidate brings to the ballot.

So yes, Bernie should not say bad
things about Hillary or undermine her.
However, all of the Republican
candidates have an obligation to the
American people to point out the
shortcomings of both Bernie and Hillary.
And vice versa.

Of course he won't diss on Hillary.
He is the chosen opposition.

The problem is that seems to be all they are doing. It's like if somebody asked if you were good at singing and your response was to point out all the bad singers and never answer the question.

No, they do not. Attacking the other party at this stage is a waste of time. I understand that it rallies the base but it's very unproductive to attack an undefined opponent. There's 16 of them left on the Republican side. If Bernie spend a minute on each of them that's a 16 minute attack speech that gets him nowhere in the primary. On the other hand he can spend 16 minutes talking up his virtues, his plans, his policies, and how/what he is going to fix and do something beneficial to the voters, and actually effective.

Biden would make a fantastic president.

I hope he throws his hat in soon, the campaign of whoever it ends up being (hopefully Biden or Bernie) will be better for the effort.
