    Sanders, Clinton Spar: 'Excuse Me, I'm Talking'

    Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton spar at the Democratic debate on March 6, 2016. (Published Monday, March 7, 2016)

    Sunday night's Democratic presidential debate in Flint, Michigan, should have been an easy win for candidate Bernie Sanders, according to NBC News. 

    In a city where manufacturing jobs have been replaced by poisoned water, the atmosphere was ripe for a discussion of trade policies, corporate greed and government spending cuts that have led to horrible consequences. 

    Sanders fought as if his life depended on it — and it just might, as he has fallen dangerously behind candidate Hillary Clinton in the delegate count.

    But Clinton came prepared to the CNN debate and more than held her own, preventing Sanders from the clear victory he needs to change the trajectory of the race ahead of Michigan's primary Tuesday.
