'Some of the Democratic Party’s strongest orators, including Senators Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Cory Booker of New Jersey, will be at the center of Wednesday’s Democratic presidential debate in Miami, the first of two this week. Ms. Warren is the only candidate on the first night who is polling in double digits, but there are plenty of intriguing story lines and political dynamics to watch for.'

A Lot of Candidates May Make It Seem Like Democracy Is Working, But It Isn't "What is largely missing from this process is the professional judgmentof people who actually know the candidates officeholders and party officials. But the Democratic Party's attempt to insert the judgment of "superdelegates" at the end of the nominating process, after primary voters have already had their say, has generated bitter complaintsabout "undemocratic"elites overriding the will of the party rank and file."

"The time for political professionals to play a constructive role is before the primaries, not after. Their job should be to commend the party's most promising potential candidates to the attention of the public, not to make the final choice themselves."

"Journalists influenced by the best recent academic workon the nominating process have already begun to tallyendorsements of the contenders by prominent political figures. That's a useful step. But many insiders are understandably reluctant to make public endorsements in the early stages of a crowded race. That leaves the press desperately searching for straws in the wind to figure out whom to take seriously."

"A better approach would be for the party itself to conduct systematic polls of Democratic senators, members of Congress, big-city mayors and state party officials not to determine which one candidate they support, but to solicit their confidential evaluations of each candidate on his or her own merits. The results could be used to formalize and accelerate winnowing the field, allowing voters to tackle the more manageable task of choosing from a short list of candidates vetted by the political professionals they themselves have already elected"

How about: " who should government represent." See who they represent now and go from there. E. Warren is front and center for a reason. She's the one. Special interests cannot be allowed to decide what the US is, and does.

These mass debates are a joke. Just an NBC ratings score.

With so little time allotted each candidate, it's going to be like starving piranhas fighting for a single piece of food in the water. The feeding frenzy is not going to be pretty to watch.

Does anyone know why it has taken so long to start the debates? I mean, there are ONLY 496(!) days until the election; hardly enough time to decide who not to vote for.
