9. Cooper tried, and failed to initiate conflict between the candidates. But he kept them moving.

Sanders won on passion and Clinton won on versatility. I rate them as a tie.
O'Malley exceeded expectations more than anyone on the stage. I don't think it will be enough to erode either of the two front runners, but he did well.
Chafee did not impress me with his failure to read the first bill he voted on, and voting with the majority because it was the majority.
Webb's complaints about not getting equal time, even though accurate, made him look petulant. He loses me on his opposition to the Iran deal.


Never the less, I will happily vote for any of these candidates in November 2016.

Because the California Primary is Jun 13, 2016, I expect the nomination to have been decided. My vote for a nominee will either amount to a coronation or a protest. I will decide which candidate gets my vote the day I go to the polls. My real work will be to decided on the primaries for other offices.
