Frustrated Kamala Harris: Americans Want Food, Not Food Fights

Democratic Debate Biden Harris

Democratic Debate Biden Harris

And pick apart they did.

The other large revelation that took place on the debate stage during the second round was that all 10 candidates wanted to offer taxpayer-paid health care to illegal immigrants. Biden defended himself after Sen.

The first crack came on the subject of immigration. This topic opened up space for Sen.

Harris, a California lawmaker and former prosecutor, turned to Biden, saying, "I do not believe you are a racist". Biden asked the crowd at the California Democratic Convention in a speech delivered on February 3, 1987, according to C-SPAN. "To "desegregate" is different than to 'integrate.'" In the interview, Biden called busing plans racist, and said the integration plans "are really just quota systems". "Second, we have to look at the root causes [of the border crisis]". This was not a first for Biden. And Biden argued for free community college and a freeze on debt repayment for any college graduate earning less than $25,000 per year.

Democratic presidential candidate, former vice president Joe Biden greets people in the audience before addressing the Rainbow PUSH Coalition Annual International Convention on Friday, in Chicago. First, by giving us the best line of the night. "So there was no need to create a broad application because of that one experience". Biden paid lip service to "hav [ing] to deal with the root causes" then, too. But the rough treatment, which also included Sanders recalling that Biden had voted for going to war in Iraq, could instead harden the former VP ahead of what will be a brutal battle with Trump.

Neither of these statements is true.

"If we want to have this campaign litigated on who supports civil rights and whether I did or not, I'm happy to do that", he said, noting he had only opposed busing for school integration ordered by the federal government, not by local governments.

Turning to Mr Biden she pilloried him for citing his past work with fellow Democratic senators who favoured segregation of the races. In his 2003 eulogy for segregationist and notorious sexual predator Strom Thurmond, Biden called Thurmond "a courageous man" who "truly wanted to help".

The number of times President Donald Trump was mentioned Thursday, more than twice as many times as on Wednesday.

Landers, a 27-year-old musician from Huntsville, Ala., initially tried to perform Al Green's "Let's Stay Together". So I don't think we can judge you properly on this.

It was a big moment, and one that Biden was not prepared to handle, though he should have known it was coming.

Biden, who was on the defensive throughout the night, has faced heavy criticism for his recent comments that he worked decades ago with two Southern segregationist senators as a way to get things done in the U.S. Senate.

Biden, meanwhile, following his struggles to defend his record on race, slipped to odds of 13/4.

He went on to compare Democrats' behavior to that of President Trump. With his centrist policy positions and everyman stylings, Biden is seen as a candidate who can win back some of the working class voters who were drawn to Trump and helped tip Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin in the Republican's favor in 2016.

The Harris campaign tweeted a photo of the senator during the debate showing a young Harris in California with a backpack and are capitalizing on the moment by quickly putting that photo on a t-shirt as part of her campaign merchandise. And Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) cast herself as a tough-on-Wall Street politician, despite her well-documented history as a loyal ally to banking interests.

There were few direct attacks between Sanders and Biden, but their divergent paths to the same goal reflect the two dominant Democratic strategies for victory.

The exchange triggered a melee, with several of the other eight candidates raising their voices to inject the last word.

Adding to the drama, though, was the fact that Harris and Biden have always been friends.
