Follow the first Democratic Presidential Debate with Flipboard Topics
Gabriella Schwarz / October 13, 2015
The Democratic candidates for president will take to the stage Tuesday night in Las Vegas for their first debate of the 2016 election cycle. Five candidates—former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee and former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb—are scheduled to participate in the CNN-hosted debate. But it is Vice President Joe Biden, now only a potential candidate, who is getting much of the pre-event buzz. While Biden continues to mull a bid, his potential rivals will meet for two hours. Clinton has consistently led the Democratic pack, but Sanders’ support has continued to rise. Use Flipboard topics to keep up with the changing Democratic dynamics.

Joe Biden: Keep up on what or in this case, who, will be the biggest elephant in the room.
