Candidates “tactically and cautiously” addressed the impeachment issue at the Democratic debate, expert says

Debate moderators in Ohio wasted no time in getting straight to the hottest issue of the moment, when they asked the 12 Democratic presidential candidates on stage about the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

While the candidates addressed it, they did not spend too much time on the issue.

James Taylor, a political science professor from the University of San Francisco saw this as a tactical and cautious move from the candidates.

“The issue of impeachment again is very delicate, because there’s the unknown, people don’t know how the electorate will respond to this favorably or unfavorably, even if you have opinion polling expressing a will to impeach, or will to remove, it doesn’t really represent perhaps a perspective of people that feel like the president shouldn’t be removed.”

As for the newest top target of the Democratic contenders, Senator Elizabeth Warren — who has tied with Joe Biden in some polls — Mr. Taylor said she could have been better prepared, especially when pressed on the specifics of her universal healthcare plan.

    DNC prefer Michelle OBAMA, Hillary Clinton also getting ready,Bloomberg also wanted to run. WHY. Warren, Sanders, Biden has no chance to beat TRUMP. It will be a LANDSLIDE VICTORY for TRUMP. Primary is almost over, DNC is still confused, they want Michelle to run but she is undecided. Barrack Obama endorsed TRUDEAU, not BIDEN.. Is Barrack still thinking if Michelle will run..Still easy victory for TRUMP.
