Klobuchar could shred Trump in a one-on-one debate

(CNN) February 8, 2020

On the evening of President Donald Trump's Friday night massacre -- his vengeful firing of two officials who testified in the impeachment hearings -- anxious Democrats watched seven presidential candidates take the stage in New Hampshire, each eager to persuade voters that he or she is the best positioned to take on the President and prevent him from winning reelection in November.

It is unlikely that the debate moved the needle, but if debate performance were the determining factor, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar would win in the Granite State. She has been the most consistent debate performer from the start, with an effective, powerful and persuasive message. And this was her best debate to date.

Klobuchar helped bring the core strategic choice before Democratic primary voters into sharp relief. Can they win just by rousing the base and boosting Democratic turnout in November, or do they need independents and Trump-exhausted Republicans? For the latter, she argued, they need a more pragmatic message.

Klobuchar demolished Buttigieg on his boast that he's untainted by Washington. People say that, she offered, because they think "it makes you seem like a cool newcomer." But this is not the time for an inexperienced president. "We have a newcomer in the White House and look where it got us."
Again, she talked about her extensive experience crafting and passing legislation, and her undefeated electoral record, not only winning elections in Republican-majority areas but using her coattails to help switch the majority in the Minnesota legislature.

1. I'm known that all along

Not only on the stage, but on twitter and every news cycle.

She would push his buttons into total incoherence.

2. I'm sure she would! She's smart and stays calm and focused

I'll always remember her exchange with Kavanaugh
