The CNN Democratic Debate, now trending via hashtag #DemDebate on Twitter, is to be moderated by Anderson Cooper. Dana Bash and Juan Carlos Lopes will also be asking questions to the debate participants.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be on the debate, as well as Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley, Jim Webb and Lincoln Chafee. Vice President Joe Biden was also invited.
The podium will have Clinton in the center spot, sandwiched between Sanders and O’Malley. On the bookend of the stage are Webb and Chafee on either side.
Belting the National Anthem at the start of the event is Grammy-award singer Sheryl Crow who is a very vocal Democrat supporter. “I think most people know that I’m a Democrat. I’m fascinated with the process and I’m going to be excited to actually be there when our candidates debate,” Crow told CNN.
