The gloves finally came off at the Democratic debate in New York on Thursday night. Credibility and experience were two hot topics in the opening remarks and Bernie Sanders defended his remarks from earlier this week questioning Hillary Clinton's judgment.
"I said that in response to the kind of attacks we were getting from the Clinton campaign," Sanders said.
"I question a judgment which voted for the war in Iraq."
Clinton struck back by saying, "Obama trusted my judgment enough to ask me to be the Secretary of State."
Sanders finally addressed Clinton's "superpredators" remark regarding African-Americans.
"It was a racist term and everybody knew it was a racist term," he said.
Clinton and Sanders then went back and forth on who was more or less pro-Israel.
At the end of the night, it was evident that Bernie Sanders has rejuvenated himself in this race. Clinton was definitely more aggressive in a sense that she had to be.
With the New York primary being five days away, look for more fireworks this weekend as Sanders looks to steal the Empire State from Clinton's grasp.
