Next debate Bernie should just stand there, look at her and wait for Hillary to stop talking

Each time it's his "turn" and Hillary keeps talking he looks at her politely and calmly, doesn't say anything doesn't gesture, just lets her talk into a silence. Eventually the crowd will take control even if the mods won't.

When it's the end of his "turn" by the official time he should graciously STFU and let her talk.

I think Hillary can be fed enough rope to hang herself with public opinion.

1. I agree

I tend to turn down the sound when she rambles on over her turn.

I wish they would just turn off their mics when they do that.

2. Agreed, Bernie needs a good tactic to counter Hillary's boorishness.

He should also have a strong opening line when he finally does get to speak that repudiates her in a humorous way.

4. Yes. And allow a very long pause, about four seconds, then ask, "are you finished?"

 

But during those four seconds, shift from looking directly at her to looking out toward the audience with a deadpan face and then back to her to ask that question,

"Madam Secretary, are you finished?"

Of course, she'll take that as a cue to run her mouth for another five minutes, which would be a real hoot.

5. Oh she's already done that with the vast majority of voters and most Democrat voters nationally.

Not to worry.

6. "Doesn't gesture"? Riiiight.

He looks as if he's auditioning for a traffic cop position.
