Then came the attacks on Paris.
With the City of Lights reeling from the deaths of at least 129 people after blasts and half a dozen firearm attacks on Friday night, the Democrats will seek to prove their mettle as strong commanders-in-chief in a perilous global moment. The Democratic debate is likely to be a subdued and somber affair.
Hillary Clinton will aim to affirm her status as a confident and collected leader during Saturday night’s debate, while challengers Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley will strive to show they are knowledgeable beyond their relatively limited foreign policy experience.
