If there's one thing we know about the New York Times, they're always going to have a hot take that leaves the rest of us cold:
Headline and lede for print @nytimes have to have been written before the debate. Only Biden & Sanders discussed on page 1. @KamalaHarris in para 8, p. 21 w/o mention of her dominant performance. pic.twitter.com/VQB8stExg4

The @JoeBiden team said that @KamalaHarris is “doing exactly what Trump wants,” per MSNBC. Fails on two levels. First, he doesn’t want a charismatic black candidate telling the truth about racism. Second, the idea Trump wants Biden out of the race, after tonight, seems laughable.

So what happened to you guys? Because the Democrats reformed themselves from JFK & LBJ civil rights bills all the way to electing the first black president, while the GOP skidded from Goldwater to Nixon to Trump. Americans don't vote based on the 19th century versions of parties. https://t.co/3s2uDgFTQw

To take a step back on this, Biden's Iraq answer showed a huge problem with his candidacy. He's not running as Obama's heir. He's running using Obama as a shield. He's not the candidate on stage who sounds most like Obama, he's the candidate hiding behind him.

Rachel Maddow: A "newspaper recently released portions of an interview you gave ... 'My own view on guns is, everything being equal, states should make those decisions.'"

If Pelosi wanted to be a mini-McConnell, she’d let the kids suffer, let the money run out and try to blame Republicans. However, that cruelty is utterly alien to her and her colleagues’ moral, religious and political principles. https://t.co/2lHNBMj6HO

Every time a new presidential election come around I always remind myself that even if the one(s) I like is elected, they will inevitably disappoint me on an extremely regular basis and probably kill a bunch of people they shouldn’t have. I’m not being morbid, I honest believe...

John Delaney’s debate claim that #M4A will shutter hospitals is unsubstantiated. Experts told us it is not at all clear that "every single hospital" would close, and while some would do worse, some might do better. #DemDebate #MedicareForAll https://t.co/vNzL8OMx3F @KHNews

232 Texas charter schools were awarded grants from money that
came from the federal charter schools program between 2006-2014. At this time, at least 73
(31.5%) of those charter schools were closed or never opened at all. https://t.co/5cZ4siPTx2

More evidence that @realDonaldTrump didn’t give a damn about Putin’s attack on the US. He didn’t even bother to talk to Tillerson about what to say about it before Tillerson met with Putin in 2017. This should be shocking. https://t.co/cy6msAncKp

Why does Trump so desire Putin’s approval? There is something so unnatural, strange, and troubling about his fealty before Putin, especially when he is in Putin’s presence.
