OK... I knew it was "frozen money"... still... I see it as a ransom deal, not so much diplomacy...

Diplomacy would bring home Robert Levinson who was sacrificed by the gov't who he served...

Supposedly Iran is going to look again to see if they have him...



Oh yeah. It's ransom money. American hostage-taking in the M.E. just got more lucrative.
How many more Americans were just taken hostage in Iraq today?


Never would of happened if we were never there.

That logic makes no sense if you consider the progression of events.

Bernie also defended Obama and denied he helped to create ISIS by training 'rebels' who helped start ISIS. This make him look pretty establishment IMO.

hey don't mind me. As much as I love Sanders, my vote is for Trump on second Amendment alone. But I still respect Sanders and O'malley in this debate.

Hearing O'Malley speak is like blessed relief... though I must say, I like some of what Sanders speaks of...

I just hope that the MD Gov gets a fair shake, he's been shafted so far...

I agree the government MUST get a warrant.

O'Malley is fighting for his life... I can appreciate his effort to have his voice heard, he's fighting an uphill battle with that moderating crew from NBC...

good job Mike, well spoken. "if creating a registry on faith, SIGN ME UP!" He gets a million props from me for that alone.

whelp as someone who has no chance of voting for any of these three clowns, all I can say is I feel bad for O'Malley, apparently someone in the establishment don't want him in office. He has been effectively "Rand Paul'ed"

Yeah, I'm starting to think maybe O'malley is the anti establishment candidate on this basis alone. It speaks volumes when the moderators go out of their way to not give equal air time.

It's not because he is anti-establishment. It's because he has very low poll numbers.

Hillary is already playing the "woman" card . . .


I think the opposition plays it more.

This debate seems to have a lot more commercials than the recent Republican one.

He's probably the most polished candidate on the DEM side...

He does have connections, he is just not the chosen one...

There is only one, and she is center stage...

Well that's what they said about Ron Paul but it was proven to be false time and time again. They left out crucial poll numbers on purpose only when he was winning, then chose to never report internet polls claiming people were cheating etc.

Wow. A question to Bernie on Bill Clinton's past behavior and he refuses to be silenced which annoys Mitchell that he only ever spoke on it at all was because he was asked.

Indeed they do, but I cannot stand the idea that she would use it as well. Hillary, as well as any democrat, must stand on issues to be elected. Playing the same game as the Republicans is a recipe for disaster.

Just look at what it's doing for the Republicans.
