    Yang is giving some good perspective on Bloomberg on CNN.

    So is Van Jones, actually. It's pretty good TV to see Yang give the billionaire perspective on Bloomberg's performance followed by Jones giving the "common" perception.

    So even though Bernie tried to poach superdelegates from Hillary last time around, and even though the DNC bent over backward to Bernie by taking away superdelegate power until the second ballot, Bernie now says there shouldn't even be a second ballot. The delegate leader after the final primary should be the nominee. Fuck off, Bernie.

    Didn't get to tune in until the end, so just judging on what I read here, but does he improve in the next one with more prep time? Or is it just more target practice for the rest of the field?

    He’ll always get brutally attacked like he did tonight. He’s out of his element and it showed. Anyone who supports him over any of the others on stage tonight is a fucking idiot.

    I don't know why he gets to play the "just warming up" card. He even tried to pull that in debate, saying "I just got into this 12 weeks ago." Like it was a spur-of-the-moment decision or someone blindfolded him, threw him in a van, dumped him on the debate stage and put a mic in his face.

    How'd Joe do? Was not able to watch.

    Yang seemed to imply that Bloomberg was probably not very coachable by his debate prep team.

    Probably his best debate performance so far, but if you've seen the others, that's not really saying much.

    Better. To me, Warren shined brightest and I thought Pete performed well. Klobuchar was feisty, but Pete rattled her. Bernie stayed the course. Bloomberg was a disaster.

    Honest question: does this actually hurt Bloomberg with the voting public?

    I mean, Twitter is killing him -- but does that really matter?
