Remind me again why two of the first four Democratic events are caucuses. So we can get the definitive results in June after 73 recounts and 22 court cases? — PolitiTweet.org

I am a big fan of the Washington Post's political coverage. But, even on deadline, there is no excuse for this many cliches in a single post-debate headline: "Democrats draw sharp contrasts in debate fraught with heated exchanges" — PolitiTweet.org

Warren won the debate. Bloomberg epically lost. Klobuchar was good. As was Sanders. Big question that is unanswerable at the moment: Where do Bloomberg supporters go on March 3? — PolitiTweet.org

Bloomberg: “I can’t speak for all billionaires.” Another line that nobody had ever uttered before on a debate stage. — PolitiTweet.org

@richgalen What’s so mystifying about tonight is that I don’t think anyone is sure how anything will play — including Klobuchar stressing that she’s a woman. — PolitiTweet.org

It is also amazing to me that three of the six candidates on tonight's debate stage were not Democrats for long stretches of their lives (Bernie the Independent, Bloomberg the GOP mayor and Warren the apolitical Republican law professor). — PolitiTweet.org
