Sanders on foreign policy last night
See this article on the debate last night, which contends that Sanders was better on foreign policy. He noted that yes, Clinton does have more experience in the matter, but her judgment is faulty. Clinton has repeatedly favored an interventionist regime change policy that sure, gets rid of brutal dictators. But it does not then explore the unintended consequences of that action. Hence we get the Iranian revolution and ISIS. This point was further hit home when Sanders criticized Clinton for glomming on to the support of Kissinger, who Sanders rightly noted was a butcher.
