Another day, another debate.
This time Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton sparred over Obama, immigration and Super PACs during the “PBS NewsHour Democratic Primary Debate,” moderated by Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff from the main campus of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
It was the sixth Democratic debate of the campaign, but the first since Sanders dominated the New Hampshire primary.
Here are some of the snarkiest, funniest and most topical tweets of the night, as seen by TheWrap:
And we’re off to the races.

Gotta give credit to Bernie: He is consistently on-message during these debates. Hillary needs to get him off-script.#DemDebate

6:30: Woodruff asked Clinton about Madeline Albright’s “special place in hell” comment, referring to women who don’t support other women.
“She’s been saying that for as long as I’ve known her,” Clinton says, “but it doesn’t change my view that we need to empower everyone women and men to make the best decisions that, in their minds, they can make.”

7:00: Woodruff asks Clinton: “What influence will your campaign contributors have on your administration?”
Clinton says the question should be asked of super PACs that support her, adding that, “I’m very proud of the fact that we have more than 750,000 donors, and the vast majority of them are giving small contributions.”

7:25: Clinton has used this line before… but it’s a great way to shut down Sanders whenever he mentions his vote against the Iraq war.
A vote in 2002 is not a plan to defeat ISIS in 2016. #DemDebate

7:43: Sanders wags his fingers.
7:49: Hillary Clinton’s attack on Sanders for not being loyal to President Obama is not sitting well with some. Obama’s legacy is a key issue. The president remains popular among African-Americans in South Carolina, a crucial voting block in that state.

How did this substantive debate was derailed into name-calling over who loves Obama more? Clinton started it. #DemDebate
