The first Democratic debate pitted upstart Bernie Sanders and frontrunner Hillary Clinton against each other, but candidates that have not been polling as high as the two leaders grabbed the crowd's attention. A Sanders presidency would be America's first socialist in office while Clinton would be the first woman -- and, of course, the only first lady to become President. While the debate wasn't as exciting as the first two Republican debates, which featured the bombastic Donald Trump, it had its moments, including a fiery but friendly exchange between Clinton and Sanders, where the Vermont senator drew applause for saying that America was tired of hearing about Clinton's emails. Who won the debate? TheStreet editors and reporters who live-covered it weigh in.
