a divide in the democratic party between the pragmatic wing that looks i think a bit more realistically about costs and dollars and what they can do versus the idealistic wing on many of these questions was there a winner or busy last night's debate in a way that changes who's ahead right now i think the loser was julio castro because his attempt to shine a light on biden's age backfired i agree with rob reynolds i didn't see any great winners but in this case you know many of us had expectations that with elizabeth warren and joe biden on stage that that would be the defining clash in collision because they are the 2 front runners right now that didn't happen so everyone came out a little bit deflated i think that that that that didn't occur i think joe biden is a bit of a winner he came out a bit strong even though he did fumble and he did fade a bit into the forum i think that on the emotional front there are a lot of americans that feel he's sort of on their side no matter the detail but
12:01 am
that i think people like clover char and people to judge did better than many analysts are thinking because they put themselves as pragmatic problem solvers and even peacemakers on that stage and i think they got a little bit of a boost we'll have to see other numbers come out what do the debate tell us then about how easy or hard it's going to be full any democrats one seat done. well i think right now we're already beginning to see that you know the top 3 candidates bernie sanders elizabeth warren and joe biden already control i think about 65 percent of the vote and right there you've got 3 people that are at the front so it's going to be hard for others to really break through i think that's why hujan castro tried to take such a flamboyant swipe at vice president biden because he wants to put himself in that race i don't think it worked for him so right now with the americans have already seen their positions harden around these 3 and elizabeth warren and bernie sanders
12:02 am
are appealing to people with many of the same ideas so it shows how strong that progressive liberal wing is that's worried about climate gun control and and women's rights to choose on abortion and many of the issues that donald trump has sort of been radicalizing the political left with there's a larger portion of those people in that track than there were in the last election so that makes it tough for joe biden but it makes it even tougher for everyone else . thanks so much for your thoughts. now and china will exempt us polk soybeans and other cultural products from any new tariffs it's another conciliatory move ahead of a new round of talks aiming to ease those u.s. china trade will tensions both sides of recently made concessions. 30 more still ahead on the news including the floods causing chaos in southeastern spain tarantula rain and heavy winds battered the country election time intern is here

network workers. commuters and tourists in paris with the most affected by the strike we had to get some help with our tour guide with their bus because we're doing some free time otherwise we'd have to. take forever to get back to our outside of town or outside the city so it took us over 2 hours to get here this morning. it's complicated i usually took a tram and the metro but neither working so i had to take it took 40 minutes with. i had to share the right and it took me an hour and a half to get instead of 30 minutes. and tasha butler has more from paris. well this is the worst transport workers strike in paris for 12 years most of the metro rail lines the shot the boss and train services are really at a strict minimum so it's making very difficult for people to get around the city
