For those keeping a scorecard at home, that was former Sens. Lincoln "My father had just died" Chafee and Jim "I've been waiting for 10 minutes" Webb who most underwhelmed, which is actually a shame because while they may be 1-percenters in the polls, they are also the least given to parrot liberal orthodoxy. Maryland's own former Gov. Martin O'Malley actually may have been the evening's greatest surprise (granted, expectations were in the lowly Chafee-Webb territory for him prior to the debate, too) with a strong presentation on guns and a memorable closing, though he lacks much of an answer for the unrest in the city he once led. That leaves Sen. Bernie Sanders who was forced on the defensive early and often seemed ill at ease — although Sanders supporters like that everyman quality in their mildly grumpy, capitalism-averse, Larry David-sounding anti-politician.
