The more I think about last nights debate, the more I'm starting to smell something rotten. Anyone out there believe that the debates are a set up to shake the appearance that Hillary is on her way to a coronation? Sanders doesn't seem to understand that he's competing against Clinton. He refused to engage her and not only failed to use his most lethal weapon (Benghazi, the emails, etc) but even dismantled that weapon publicly. Webb and Chaffee? What? Who? Seems to me that Hillary has already begun the general election. Sanders is there to appear as an extremist, to give Hillary a more centrist appearance. Chafee and Webb are there to expand the field to five, so it looks like the democrats have an actual selection of candidates and omalley is there to answer the race questions. Webb also attracts the moderate/conservative democrats to become engaged in the campaigns. Webb and chafee will bow out before the next debate, to give more time to Hillary and sanders/omalley will eventually drop out and support Clinton. I'm not sure I fully believe the above. Actually, I'm not sure if i believe any of it, but after last nights debate performance, especially with omalleys "we're all one big happy family" closer, I do smell something not quite right. Seemed like an act, as if the questions were given to the candidates in advance.
