    Clinton Attacks Sanders as 'Single Issue Candidate' in Debate

    During Thursday's Democratic debate, Hillary Clinton appeared to try and douse the "Berning" passion of Bernie Sander' supporters with a cool dose of reality, according to NBC News.

    All the while, Clinton adopted a new more measured tone to reflect her message, and honed her rhetoric.

    Instead of taking swings at her opponent as she has in previous debates, Clinton made it clear she agrees with Sanders' progressive principles. She let him throw the punches while she subtly undermined his competence and readiness to enact those principles.

    Clinton began -- and ended -- the night by saying she wants to "knock down all the barriers that are holding Americans back," not just the economic ones Sanders emphasizes. And she ended the evening with a devastating new line: "I am not a single issue candidate and I do not believe we live in a single issue country."

And she continued to closely align herself with President Barack Obama, who remains popular particularly with black Democrats.
