I was actually thinking about giving tonight’s debate a miss, but I am fascinated by the prospect of watching Michael Bloomberg twist in the wind.
If you also want to watch tonight it is being broadcast on NBC.
The candidates that will be present on stage include Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Bloomberg, and Bernie Sanders.
According to the most recent polls Sanders currently leads the pack with Biden a distant second, and then Bloomberg and Warren, but let’s see if any of that changes after this debate.
As usual, I will update this post as new information becomes available.
Update: I agree with this comment 100%.
I don’t know how anyone could watch Warren filleting Bloomberg tonight and not want to see her onstage with Trump

Elizabeth Warren did not come to play, she came to win.
Update 2: Just Warren casually eviscerating Michael Bloomberg on the Democratic debate stage.
Elizabeth Warren: I’d like to talk about who we’re running against: A billionaire who calls women fat broads and horse faced lesbians, and no, I’m not talking about Donald Trump, I’m talking about Mayor Bloomberg.#DemDebate pic.twitter.com/cNhC6yRc4W

I think Bloomberg might need to leave the venue in a wheelchair.
Update 3: This matches my take as well.
Order, given their strategic needs and performance, on my fight card: 1. Liz, 2. Bernie, 3. Pete, 4. Joe, 5. Amy, 6. Mike

I think Elizabeth Warren needed to show her fire again, and she did that while giving Bloomberg third degree burns in the process.
