The first set of Democratic debates (June 26th and 27th) had among them future leaders of one of the most powerful countries in the world. Unfortunately, we could see more losers than winners. The constraints of the debate are partially to blame with candidates only being given sixty seconds to answer. This usually resulted in people interrupting each other. This led to many candidates having bad performances especially those that were not assertive enough.
Coming into the debate Joe Biden was the obvious forerunner, but by the end of the debate it seemed like Biden was the loser. He only needed to have an at least a neutral performance, and it seems like he failed completely. His biggest enemy was his own record. This allowed him to be open for attacks from other candidates. Most of his time talking was Biden defending himself, instead of showcasing reasons to vote for him. One of his biggest mistakes was when he was defending himself from Kamala Harris. His allotted thirty second rebuttal time was up and instead of finishing his response he said “Anyway, my time is up”. This phrase perfectly summarizes his performance.
