  • Not Biden's best night. Biden was sidelined for large parts of the debate. "His response to the predictable question about his son Hunter Biden's Ukrainian lobbying work was unemotional, when righteous indignation would have been appropriate," writes Anthony Zurcher at the BBC.
  • Bernie is back. A spirited performance from Sanders did much to counter concerns about the senator's health. "In his first debate after suffering a heart attack, he seemed more lively than he has been at any previous one," writes Aaron Blake at the Washington Post.
  • Unity on impeachment. The debate's first question dealt with impeachment and all 12 candidates agreed that President Trump should be impeached, the AP reports. Sanders called Trump "the most corrupt president in the history of the country."
