  This past Thursday, February 4, 2016, Presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton went head to head in a debate at the University of New Hampshire. The two candidates agreed to add three more debates, after this first one, to their campaign schedule in hopes of getting their ideas known all across America.

  The debate in New Hampshire was less than friendly when it turned from typical question answer to a reputation battle. Sanders went after Clinton by addressing her past involving the email scandal and her acceptance of donations from middle eastern countries. Clinton became fed up with the constant repetition of her past being brought up and began going after Sanders, practically calling his campaign unrealistic. Clinton spoke of how she would not make any promises she could not keep, taking a jab at Bernie Sanders and implying that he would not be able to deliver on his hopes for change and reform. Clinton also touched upon Sanders lack of discussion about foreign policy. The two candidates went back and forth on the MSNBC debate, Bernie talking about minimum wage and health care and Hillary speaking of foreign policy but the social buzz of the debate remained on the battle between the reputations.

  The two candidates will have three more opportunities to fight it out on the debate stand in the upcoming months. They will be heading to Flint, Michigan in March, California in May, and either Brooklyn, New York or Pennsylvania in April.
