4:15 pm
relatives of the victims that you are playing politics with this issue? we are not playing any games. we said before and we are saying now we didn't shoot the plane down. ukraine is playing the political games. they were obliged to shut the airspace over the conflict zone. but they didn't do it. >> las vegas is no stranger to big-ticket fights and last night the democrats were in town trading blows in their fast of eight. they covered a range of issues, from gun control to american involvement in syria. hillary clinton was hoping to hold onto her frontrunner status and stem the growing support for senator bernie sanders. here is this report. >> for one night only, the city of sin became the city of
4:16 pm
sincerity as the five democratic party hopefuls debated in las vegas, though in reality it is a two horse race between hillary clinton who has been here before and the left-wing vermont senator bernie sanders, who hasn't. but he is riding high and now coming under intense scrutiny. insupported the sandinistas nicaragua. you honeymoon in -- you honeymooned with the soviet union. mr. sanders: do i consider myself part of the casino capitalist process by which so few have so much and so many have so little, by which wall street's greed and recklessness wrecked this economy? no, i don't. i believe in a society where all people do well, not just a handful of leaners. answeredy clinton questions about her e-mails while secretary of state will stop the questions have not gone

4:18 pm
interesting question. what about the man who is playing his cards very close to his chest? vice president joe biden has not thrown his hat into the ring, but has not ruled himself out either. though it is clear with ads like this would outcome his supporters want. which if it happened could be a game changer in this race. for more on last nights debate, i spoke a brief time ago with the democratic strategist peter sent to get his reaction on the stage and the decision everyone is still waiting for. enoughlary clinton do last night to scare off joe biden and stop him from entering the race? >> it is hard to predict what politicians will do, especially when running for president. definingay this is the moment in decision-making.
4:19 pm
if he's out the whole debate situation was horrendous -- if you thought the whole debate situation was arraigned if he might say, oh, i've got to move on this. have they managed to reassure those democrats who are very about their standing in the polls? >> because there has been so much talk and coverage about the e-mail business, and every time she would come out every week with a proposal on a substantive issue it would get harried. and here you have -- it would get buried. and here you have a debate where everyone talked issues. it was civil and substantive and areas. and it -- and serious. and it really is what political junkies want to watch. some of the republicans may like food fight and hollywood squares and all that, but i think you have a lot of people engaged in that debate.
4:20 pm
they were engaged with bernie sanders message and engaged with with the others. at this helped to elevate the debate. clinton do enough to stop the momentum of bernie sanders? i think so. it is hard to predict how these things will come together, but she looked more presidential. she was more of a pragmatist. i think there is a lot of concern about whether someone who is called a democratic socialist can win the president, someone who also has some promise with -- problems with a gun issue, which in a democratic primary will cost him. he had a very strong message, but ultimately you have to decide who the nominee of the party is going to be. isand yet a lot of money going to bernie sanders in the aftermath of that debate. >> absolutely, he was tweeting out messages to get more money
4:21 pm
hillaryter complimented -- well, not complement at her, but defended her. that bernienotion sanders is going to be a poor man going into these primary caucuses is not the case. , only $2 $26 million million less than hillary did last time. he has kept his resources. hillary is spending more than he is spending. he will have the money to compete. this will be about ideas and who can win in november. >> thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure. >> next republican debate will be at the end of the month, but you'll have to wait until they regroup in iowa. a familiar musical in filing which. the acclaimed musical about german teenagers in the 1890's,

4:23 pm
a different challenge. there are no such things as counts or musical cues. that is what we have developed with actors chewing each other, or using cue lights to make sure they are signing in time together. >> the music world is becoming more open to death actors and theater goers. the attendance at broadway performances has increased the amount of shows they covered by 200% in the past five years. and it has been an increase in funding and interest. past four years we have produced one show, and now we have had more support in todraising and we can do productions in one year. it is easier,ity, because they are motivated and see their own language on stage. a deaf actress anna thomas at has been helping with
