Biden Snapped More at the Moderators than His Opponents

Former Vice President Joe Biden was the only candidate onstage Tuesday in Charleston, SC who was dutifully following the debate rules. He raised his hand and waited his turn to be called on by the CBS News moderators. And for that, he found himself lost in the shuffle while his opponents did all the talking.

Instead of trying a new approach and interjecting, he blamed the moderators, especially Gayle King, who kept promising they'd "get back" to him.

It eventually grated on his nerves, and he started to snap. 

"We will get you Mr. Vice President, I promise," King said at one point.

"You keep promising that, but you haven't done it yet," Biden returned. To which King said, "I've never broken a promise."

Still, he kept his hand up and waited to be called on, behavior he chalked up to his "Catholic school training."

"Vice President Biden, you are a gentleman," King assured him. He didn't exactly accept the compliment.

Despite Biden being largely out of last night's conversation, there plenty of pundits who deemed him Tuesday's winner because he looked "presidential." We think maybe the media is just trying to avoid a Bernie Sanders nomination, particularly after his declared love for former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

The South Carolina Primary is Saturday. Biden is currently leading in the polls and just secured an important endorsement from Rep. James Clyburn.
